about

Audio Letter Live
90 minute cassette
released Seattle 1981

Audio Letter's first cassette album release is comprised of the best live recordings from their first 11 concerts in Seattle and San Francisco. Being an improvisational band each performance was unique, thus the numbering of shows. Different musicians came to play with the core members Sue Ann Harkey, on prepared 12 string guitar, and Sharon Gannon on stream of consciousness vocals. This is definitely a momentous collection of hard core improve, punk and performance art. Back in the good old analog days where every cassette label was hand drawn by Sharon and each xeroxed booklet hand assembled by Sue Ann. (Scans of which are included with downloads.)
