about

This is a cassette compilation that chronicles the years we spent in Albuquerque, NM, 1993-95. All live except for three tracks, we put this together when we were leaving Albuquerque and moving back to Pittsburgh in 1995. When we released The Mad Leafless Tree in 1994, we stopped performing as Tiny Little Help for a while, merging our band with our friends The Phones-- Darrell Fudgie Sparks, Clint Dearborn & Margarita Artola-- forming the Death of Rock Workshop, but by late 1994 we had become Tiny Little Help again, with Fudgie joining the band and moving back to Pittsburgh with us for a while, and a half-dozen of his songs are featured on this release.
