Favorite Bad Recordings?

Post by TimorousMe » Sun Feb 13, 2005 11:00 am

I'd like to know what everyone?s who has favorite CD or LP where the recording sucks ass.

Personally, I love Ted Leo's S/T, Even if its muddy as all hell.

early REM. Loved Murmer.played the shit outa it...........but have ya gone back and listened to it lately? Terrible production. Maybe it got remastered recently, but my copies sound like crap.

Anyone else notice this?

Guided by Voices---well, where do you start with them?

-Tractor Rape Chain
-Hot Freaks

Those are two I can think of. Maybe GBV doesn't count as much as they were well aware of what they were doing.
