The Connells
(Original 2004 Notes)

Originally compiled in August 1997 by Lee Collins & distributed via an analogue tape tree on the 'Connells' listserv.

Deluxe Edition bonus tracks compiled by Cheryl Wolf in august 2004.

A collection of some of the many cover songs The Connells have performed live over the years.

They range from the full band performing entire songs, to acapella snippets by the twisted & encyclopaedic human jukebox
that is Douglas J. MacMillan, with everything in between...also included are some amusing bits of stage patter.
Most of the tracks appear to date from the late 80's through the early 90's.

The quality of the tracks varies from excellent to fair, and as most have seen some analogue generations, there is some tape hiss
present. In other words, these are not
A+ quality digital recordings but rather a collection of historical (or hysterical) documents.
