1313 MOCKINGBIRD LANE - Unfinished Business (The Toilet Tapes)
What we have here is a mixed bag of songs never released, combined with unreleased versions of songs that are totally different from the released versions. Some of these are demo versions. Others are rehearsal versions. And some are killer live versions.
Accordingly, the recording quality is also all over the map here from hi-fi to lo-fi and everywhere in between. The material on this record represents several different lineups which makes it interesting. Throughout the years, even when they added a second guitar player, 1313 Mockingbird Lane manage to maintain the stripped-down rock-and-roll feel. As you will hear, they tear it up!
So, Turn It Up, and, as Bo Diddley once advised, my radio listeners: Sit Back and Relax and Get Ahold Of Yourself!
