ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Waiting In Line

Waiting In Line was a title that was originally suggested by Phan Nguyen of Talent Show Recordings (the label that released Hello Dennis Driscoll in 1999). Phan and Dennis Driscoll were going to put out a set of discs compiling Driscoll\'s earlier years but sadly, that never happened.

However, Driscoll decided to release everything digitally in July of 2008. That is how this new-old album was born! Originally, a lot of the material was released on Driscoll\'s label which was (at the time in 1997 and such) called \'Brown Recordings.\'

The earliest recorded song on this album is a Dennis Driscoll song from... probably 1983. It is called \'Popeye Can Kill Monsters\' and features Driscoll and his father, Les Driscoll who talks a bit at the end to say \'that\'s very good.\'

These songs were mainly recorded in Astoria, Oregon (at KMUN) and Ilwaco Washington (at Driscoll\'s Ilwaco, Washington house) from the mid-\'90s up until 1998 or so.

Enjoy the tape hiss and the Low-Fi rumble. Sweet dreams!

Note
