THE "ROBBIN' THE HOOD"/"13 FL. OZ."-"TEST PRESS" CASSETTE! WOW!!!

This one is SO bad ass, I just HAD to put it up today. This thing is CRAZY. The reason I say that is because the cassette J-Card is labeled: "Robbin' The Hood"; while the AUDIO that is on the actual cassette is the "13 fl. oz." CD!!!!!! I have heard that prior to Brad coming up with the idea of adding all of the experimental stuff to "Robbin'" & the Raleigh stuff, the band was stumped on what to do as he was working on NEW material; like the acoustic stuff: "Mary", Freeway Time", etc. that is on "Robbin' The Hood". Basically, they didn't have a "Full" album to put out there yet. If you look at the actual "Robbin' The Hood" & take out the acoustic stuff & the Raleigh stuff & even some of the experimental stuff ("Waiting for Bud"), there's not a lot there. So,...... The idea was to release a "compilation" of tracks from "40 oz. to Freedom" & the "New" stuff that they had completed, mastered, etc. & put them together until they had a whole album of "New" material to unleash on our asses...... And,.......... to call it: "Robbin' The Hood". This is exactly why this "Promo" cassette exists & I have ONLY SEEN ONE OF THESE. As far as I can gather,.... this was a "test pressing" of some sort that was put together by Bud, Eric & Miguel while Brad was strung out off in his "STP" because the music wasn't necessarily his "priority" at that point. I have heard that once Brad was shown this and notified of the "plan", he said: "No, No, we'll release this as a "Promo", call it "13 fl. oz. Songs" & I will compile "Robbin' The Hood" from the infamous 4 track stuff that he was doing on his own. So, here you have it folks,... what was GOING to be: "Robbin' The Hood",..... but became the: "13 fl. oz." CD (as well as the "6 fl oz." cassette.). Crazy huh? But, also, completely "sublime".... You gotta love it.... Enjoy guys,... you probably will never see another one of these..... And all I can personally say is: BAD ASS. GMan
