In the summer of 1991, Dave Grohl went into WGNS Studios and recorded four songs, playing all the instruments himself. The recording was combined with six songs from a previous Upland Studios session recorded in late 1990. Although both sessions occurred after joining Nirvana, Grohl unobtrusively acknowledged their existence. A tape of the songs, given to Simple Machines co-founder Jenny Toomey by Grohl, immediately became a candidate for the labels Tool Cassette Series. The 1990 sessions emerged as Grohl, then the drummer of Scream, requested his producer friend Barrett Jones to record songs in his home 8-track tape recorder. Upon accepting Simple Machines' request for a demo tape, Grohl decided to hide his identity under the pseudonym Late!, "because I’m an idiot and I thought it would be funny to say to everybody, 'Sorry, we’re Late!’".
I'm not sure of the source for this one as there are a number of bootlegs that feature these tracks. I downloaded them as 320kbps mp3 and dispite the cassette tape heritage the sound is actually very good. I did do a little bit of level adjustment and removed a couple of clicks/imperfections on tracks 01-10. I've also added four alternative versions taken fron various official releases. The download also includes the unedited mp3 files of tracks 01-10.
