Hello! Another day blends into the last, it grows hard to keep it all straight; I've taken to writing little notes in my datebook to remind me when things happened. I just added this blue highlight: "A chaos of desire DATs" as I've put up a new exclusive for my supporters. They help pay the bills during these tough times, and in exchange receive exclusive content to download or stream; this week I got a $25-a-month Patron and a $5-a-month patron at bandcamp. I appreciate those of you who can afford to support. If you're concerned about finances, I totally get it! These are tough days. You can grab a free download of Highlights 2016-2020, or stream all of our music at Spotify.

Stay well, stay patient, we'll get through this. Take care…. Sam

  A chaos of desire (DAT1-2-3)

29 years and 11 months ago, I mixed Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s 4th album, A chaos of desire. I worked for days in my friend Walter Holland’s home studio, perfecting the way I wanted each song to sound. For this exclusive patron release I digitized three sixty-minute DAT tapes with multiple mixes of all the songs on the album. Listen for slight differences of volume on the vocals and instruments — I’m sure fans will enjoy hearing these subtly different mixes (plus there's an acoustic mix of the first half of "Pandora's Box.") Chaos was released in 1991. I’m thinking of a remastered 2LP / CD edition for the 30th anniversary in 2021, once we’re free to be ourselves again. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in all these years that I sing one line on the album. It's in the title track, “life moves on, lie in wait, unaffected unconscious.” Today, we're all waiting for life to move on.

For a $5 monthly subscription you support the ongoing creation of my music, help me pay my bills, and listen to exclusive. Also, chat with me and other fans in the community.

Thanks so much. – Sam
