Mike Keneally "The Tar Tapes, Vol. 2" (Download)

(Released in 1998.)

The second collection of 17 songs from Mike's infamous past. It's been out of print for a long time, and now it's available exclusively via download. Also included is an eight-page digital reproduction of the original CD cover, liner notes and lyrics. The download is a 136.3MB zip file containing high-quality (minimum 256k variable bit rate) mp3 audio files, compatible with all mp3 players. The files are DRM-free, meaning that there is no anti-copying code buried in them (we trust you).
