Summer Tour Rip Off Tape

The BiG MiSTAKE "SUMMER TOUR RIP-OFF TAPE”

was made to support a quick tour of the Southern
United States in 1993. Records sold well, but making cassette tapes for cheap and being able to toss them out while on the road while on tour was a great promotional tool - as well as a big favorite with new fans.

Since time was short, the release was recorded in Gabe's attic with the help of his father George, the founder of Sling Slang Records.

Recorded in a weekend and mixed in one following weekend, this tape captured the gritty underside BiG MiSTAKE has. This is basically a quick recording of 6 songs in the works; some never materialized beyond the tape, others became full frameworks of songs that appear on their full CD release entitled “i”, released in 1994 .

The tapes were duplicated DIY style by all the members of the band. That being said, some of the tapes sounded better than the others. There are vocals by 4 out of the 5 members on this tape: Gabe, Ted, Jen and Rob.

This tape is extremely hard to find, and good luck finding a cassette player too.
