This is pretty cool - I like the rough mixes of the songs. I'm sure I'll only listen to most of them once, but it's a nice idea.

I'd love for NFG to do something like this.

This is so cool. I don't know when/if I'll ever listen to all of these, but I love when bands do stuff like this. I hope Kris eventually releases this stuff for all of their albums.

Good stuff, I wish more bands would release those rarities for fans. Make sure you read Kris' post on bandcamp. He gives some nice insights and cool stories about the recording of this album.

Good call. I should have mentioned that when I submitted this too. Cheers.

I've been playing them for a while now. I'm so stoked he put these out with the accompanying message. Really great to get this. As some have said, it would be awesome for other artists to follow suit.

I love seeing an insight into how songs are developed over the process of writing and recording an album - especially for an album like this that I listened to so much when I was younger (and is still one of my favourites).

This is amazing! Kris didn't have to do this. They're even "pay what you want"! Kris rules. Fuck you guys who always just bitch about how much of an asshole he is.

Can't wait to listen to all of these!

I'm curious how this album would have been received if, as Kris mentions thinking about in the write-up, they had released the Orange Whip sessions as the actual album.

Does this make up for them not releasing a full length since 2007?

Love how much Ataris news there's been in the last few days. Here's hoping the new album actually sees the light of day next year.

Pretty cool to hear but I don't know if I'll make it through all 50, especially since its the same songs 4x over, in instrumental versions etc.

Very cool that he released this. Makes me wish Mike Herrera/MxPx would do something like this.
