German Shepherds - Unreleased / Live



Cassette, C60
Label : Tonspur Tapes, Germany, 1992


As I was planning to post what I thought was an unreleased cassette by German Shepherds, I saw in Discogs that a similar cassette was released on Tonspur Tapes. But it seems not to be exactly the same cassettes : mine has one more track, "Wally Spencer Sold" (A7), and A4 track has not the same title...
German Shepherds LP and first 7" can be downloaded here.


Tracklist :

Unreleased
A1. I Begged Billy Not To Beg (2:30)
A2. Cruising With Ed Smith (2:59)
A3. Help Me Lassie (1:33)
A4. I Rejected Christ (5:42)
A5. Let The Night Roar (1:36)
A6. Cancer (4:23)
A7. Wally Spencer Sold (3:33)
A8. Mommy Fries (3:39)
A9. The Earthquake Has Come (2:20)
A10. Booty Jones #8 (5:45)
Live
B1. Communist Control (7:43)
B2. Quit It (6:08)
B3. THC (5:44)
B4. I Adore You (5:18)
B5. The Complacent American (5:47)

i'm curious to hear that tape which i'm downloading now... i'm the submitter of the tape in discogs... i'll give it a listen when the download is complete and tell you if the 2 tracks are the same as on my cassette, tracks from one of the compilations where they appear or at least really otherwise unreleased stuff...
i also have my tape digitalized some time ago to share but never started an own blog... well that's not the full truth i reserved a blogsite but it's empty and blank since a year...

btw. can you recommend any sharing sites where it doesn't take hours to upload?

well ready... i rejected christ is exactly the same as the lonely crowd... but wally spencer sold is totally unknown to me... it isn't also one of the tracks released on what is truth vol.2 lp... it could be orgy porgy from what is truth vol.1 lp... that's the only song i never heard

interesting. i too have a tape of german shepherds rarities. back in '88 i had written to them at the address on the LP and they wrote back telling me to send them a blank tape. they sent it back with their first EP + 7", some live tracks and other oddities. my tape does have 4 unique songs going by title alone - "brain police (live)", toad world, i'm anal & "let it all hang out (live)". if you want i can rip em and send them to you...

sorry, i can't send a pic of the cover since i don't have a scanner. it basically looks like yours with the same handwriting written in pencil. maybe i'll try to take a pic or something.
