Rivers Cuomo - Alone III
Also included on this disc are a number of lo-fi acoustic demos. These no doubt come from the time when Rivers was playing a few solo acoustic shows for friends at Harvard. Many of the songs from this era are very good even though the recordings themselves are not high in the fidelity department. This requires you to dig a little for the gold, but it's there. Some of the songs are very short and cut in and out of stereo, but that's what happens when you record on old tape recorders. These albums are exactly what they claim to be: demos.
