Butch Walker Cassette Backs

Released: Nov 25, 2016

Formats: LP


Kicking off the sessions for Stay Gold, these 4-track demos reveal the jubilant spirit of rebirth and celebration that guided the sessions for the album.  Recorded and mixed by Walker on an 80’s Teac 244 4-track cassette multitrack recorder, Cassette Backs is an unvarnished look at a prolific artist in full control, liberated from pretense and dedicated to the noble pursuit of Rock and Roll.

Cassette Backs compiles stripped-down early versions of standout songs from Stay Gold, including a stunningly sparse version of the album’s title track, alongside previously unreleased songs about hoodlum friends, exasperating kids, old times and lost loves with hints of doo wop, folk, pop, rock and everything in between.

The limited edition 12″ vinyl will be available on Friday, November 25th (Black Friday) exclusively at participating independent record shops listed at RecordStoreDay.com.
