With the exceptions of programs 12 and 13, these songs were recorded in the early part of the 1990’s. The intention was not to release them in this form (if at all), but to give the record company a rough idea of the songs the band had at the time. Don Caballero wrote the “punky” songs with the sole intention of obtaining a record contract. To the band, it seemed at the time that contracts flowed like water for this kind of music. The band soon found out that it wasn’t quite that easy, but they did eventually manage to sign a deal with Touch and Go Records. It is interesting to see how some of these songs (or parts of them) developed into others that became quite well known - and how the transition from rock to total doye began.

The oldest recordings found here are programs 1 thru 6, which became the first two singles and a B-side for the fourth. They were recorded in a half-inch 8-track studio by Lee Hollohan of Valencia, PA, for only $25 an hour. The next batch, 7 thru 9, were recorded by Steve Albini in his once home studio and were a part of the For Respect sessions (1993 Touch and Go Records). Program 10 was also recorded in this same studio by colleague engineer Bob Weston. Program 11 was recorded in Detroit by engineer Al Sutton and was part of the sessions for Don Caballero 2 (1995 Touch and Go Records). Lastly, programs 12 and 13 were recorded again by Steve Albini in the B Room portion of his new Chicago studio, Electrical Audio, directly preceding the sessions for What Burns Never Returns (1998 Touch and Go Records).
