These are among the oldest recordings I have made. They show you Zaire Kariff as he was starting out. For those who remember, and those who wish to understand, this is a must have. Also, I slapped on three bonus tracks for this download. They are demos, and give a hint of where we are going!
This album is my "first" record. That's in quotations, because I don't believe it to be a full representation of what was in my head at the time. I had more ideas, but had no idea how to execute them. The album was rushed and not quite what I hoped. This was the learning album, so to speak. These are my first experiments and fledgling ideas.
These ideas will be shown in a far better light in the upcoming "Green Line" album, but that is not going to be finished until this October. You see, I learned my lesson about rushing. I am re-releasing that for those who may have lost their original copy and for fans, or soon to be fans, who would like to have a point of reference in seeing how far I have come. That's what "The Green Line" is all about, fearlessly going into the studio and figuring out a way.
Keep in mind that I knew nothing of mastering, proper mix, etc. I had only recently picked up a guitar and started writing songs. I actually kind of made the album in hopes of paying off taxes...complicated story. I'll put it in the blog.
Anyway, if you desire to see what was, and have a hint of what is to come, go ahead and pick this up!
