PHONEY // NT123 1973 C90
Absolutely crazed behaviour as captured over tell-a-fones, many years ago, cast of hundreds, wild harrassment, really quite a mess, you might better hang up! (The Jerky Boys were infants.) Illegal!!
RSM AND THE LITTERBUGS // NJ124 1979 C90
Early radio broadcast performance. WFMU after only 1 yr in the North; interesting but weirded; too much quasicosmic synthesizer doodling, not responsible (enough).
KAFFEEKLATSCH // NJ125 1984 C90 / 2CD
Superlative collection of nu songs n xperiments n juxtapositions n laughs n composing power. Wild n spirited, jazzy n sensitive.

Axcellent!
ORGAN DONOR // NJ126 1984 C60

GREATEST HITS // NJ130 1984 C60 / CD
The very best of the best 1980's R. Stevie Moore we could gather for you in an hour of truth. Presumedly, another one of many 'good places to start'-tapes for the uninformed, this program centers on traditional accessibilities and may easily make you a continuing collector. Not for the steamish. Only hits included: 'I Want You in My Life,' 'Everything Is Good,' 'Delicate Tension,' 'The Crystal Chandelier,' and other smash pix. Unlimited edition. Good news!
PHONEY, VOL. 2 // NT131 1974 C90
(See 123 for useless descriptive information)
LIVE IN BOSTON // NM132 1984 C57
Travel to Massachusetts, set up equipment, play loud in front of indifferent crowd at The Channel. Horrible audio, goofy performance, unnecessary recording. Avoid.
THE R. STEVIE MOORE FAMILY ALBUM // NJ133 1985 C90s / 2CD
Perhaps one of the ultimate RSM tapes, though he does not appear! Realized and compiled by Jim Price, the F.A. contains Mooresongs as interpreted by a wide range of fans, contax, n' freinds&enemeies. A totally surprising outside effort by JP, Peter Olafson, introducing Tony Brower, Bob Brainen, the Franks, BMann, Donna, others. Truly awe-inspiring for RSMCC fans. Love, no doubt. (A continuing series, expanded in 2001.)
LIVE SET AT THE DIVE, N.Y.C. // NJ134 1984 C46
Slightly better, famous breakup farewell, harsh band of rock musicians. Interesting one-listen gigg. Rsmurky.
IF I WERE KING OF THE FOREST (Billy Anderson) // NT135 1973 C30 / CD
Recently-discovered rare lost archive master, early RSM & BA. Beginnings of mammoth tape concept. Much Homers guitar and charminghiss. Some historical story!
THE SWINGS - ROCKIN' NEW YEARS EVE // NTK136 1976-1977 C90
BA & RSM cover band, partyin' big at a gig in a huge municipal arena of Frankfort, Kentucky. The idea (?) is great, the tunes (typical hardrock top 40 of the era) are atrocious. Why this one is released is beyond me.
SKELETONS // 1985 NTJ137 C60 / CD
Modern mood music by Jim Price and R. Stevie Moore; as initially recorded on the crew's famous facation drive down south to BA studio in February. Clean unique orchestronix over-powered by supreme drum punch, then finalmastered & bassed in Montclair. Titled pieces provide thought provoking imagery. And... on and on.
BARELY // NTJ138 1984-1985 C60 / CD
Yet... another... new... year. Not much Write recording, not much else left to prove? Thus, next in the series of mere scrap-tapes. The audiodiary cont. Odd experimince, blue bats, Nashville evidence, FMU dates, rehurssells, & a spotlight feature session of the return of Mike Hopper.
STUDIO ETHOS (Victor Lovera) // NT139 1972-73 C90
Further glimpses of this fine singer/writer & his own RSM experience.

A real classic of desperate Tennessee passion.
R. STEVIE MOORE'S THREE BLAZERS // NJ140 1985 C90 / 2CD
Fascinating instrumental trios, high fidelitone, with Lee 'n Chris. Jazzy original score 5 stars, noteworthy are themes from 'Exodus,' 'Cunt Slur,' & 'We Are the Girl.' Yes!

UMPTEENTH // NJ145 1985 C90 / 2CD
Another and another and another and another and another awfullypointless Scraps Masterpiece. If you could only hear what's on this one. As 138, more of the crew(s), both at home, on the radio, on the wire, and in Nashvl. For chronicalists only, or their sons. Stevie dork. Includes 'Such Are the Times,' 'Time Standstill,' 'Old Clothes to Sell,' 'Love Never Works,' 'Let's Twist Again,' many adds. For Saturnine.
R.STEVIE MOORE IS WORTH IT // NJ146 1985 C90 / 2CD
One of the Newest and Best Overall Tapes in this entire Catalog. A Comeback, of sorts. Orig. titled 'Makin' Hits Again' because of the re-return to Songwriting Effort. An hour and a half of tuneful Belodies, sophisto post-production, guess drumming, secret liverpool clues, keys and 6 strings, extreme Ups and dOWNS, gettin' on Base. Numerous Single prospects: 'Tip of My Tongue,' 'Colliding Circles,' 'Your Dancing Ears,' 'You Love Me (Do Something),' 'Within You Without You,' 'Man Without a Gland,' anothers.
