about

This group of songs collected dust for almost a decade. In 2012, I resurrected the songs from misplaced 4-Track Tapes I had in storage boxes in Dallas, Texas.

The tunes were recorded all in Los Angeles, California during the period 1999-2003, At that time, I was working on songs for my California Daze album. The songs I include on the Guittard Tapes were never released until now. You will find some alternate takes or early versions for a few California Daze songs.

Back then I was listening to the Byrds quite heavily and therefore of of the tunes are intentionally jangly with Rickenbacker sounds. I played the drums, bass, and even a sitar on the first track which was recorded 3 Weeks After 9-11. The album is on the imperfect lo-fi raw side, which I particularly like.

It's DIY project. Enjoy!

about

Jim Guittard Fort Worth, Texas

Some dude trying to keep it real and to stay away from corporate ladders and cubicles. I make up lo-fi psychedelic folk songs about my life wherever I'm at.
