about

with David Beauchamp (Drums).

Alternate raw, demo & live versions of the songs from the "City & Eastern Songs" album released on Rough Trade Records, plus non-album outakes & bonus tracks.

Compiled in 2008 by Jeffrey Lewis, this is a companion to the 2005 Rough Trade-released album "City & Eastern Songs". "City & Eastern TAPES" is 12 tracks of demos and alternate versions (of all of the 12 songs that appeared on the official Rough Trade release), plus 6 never-released album out-take songs. These 18 raw versions document the actual sound of Jeffrey & Jack Lewis (with drummer David Beauchamp) in 2004-2005 and what the "City & Eastern Songs" album MIGHT have been if it had been recorded in the same home-made lo-fi style as Jeff's first two albums, and had the songs for the official album not been re-recorded in a professional studio in 2005 with Kramer as producer. The 12 officially released glossy Kramer productions on "City & Eastern Songs" are great in their own right, but this "Tapes" compilation is a must for fans of Jeff's earlier lo-fi recordings - plus there's 6 songs never released on a Jeffrey Lewis album before!
