Greyhouse - 1991-1997 Discography
One of the tapes i played countless times throughout the '90s was my trusty Greyhouse live on WFMU cassette. I never thought their studio recordings captured the band's live intensity, but listening to all this stuff again now, it really sounds great. These are not vinyl rips, these files are straight from the master tapes (same as the Hated collection), so the sound quality is excellent. A double CD of this material was supposed to come out back in 2005. At that time all the tracks were mastered (and leaked obviously), and apparently all the band was waiting for was the artwork. Nearly 4 years later, i'd say this is safe to post here. Shame it never came out, but it's time to let the fans hear it.
This 2 CD set collects everything the band released, besides the song Ashes from the Beneath the Wheel comp, as well as a dozen unreleased tracks (some of which were recorded in 1997), and the entire live on WFMU set. Enjoy.
A Rose For Lindsay remains one of my favorite songs of the '90s.
