Life Without Spot - A Food Not Bombs Benefit Compilation

Cassette, released 1994 (U.S.)

Includes the Tiger Trap tracks "Words and Smiles" and "One More Stitch"

Well, hell...I had no idea this one existed. This compilation cassette was apparently released in 1994. I grabbed the pic above from Discogs. The cassette seems to be incredibly rare. There were two Tiger Trap songs on here: one was "Words and Smiles" (I assume that's the same version that appeared elsewhere), and the other was "One More Stitch", which was exclusive to this cassette. My guess is that this one became "Stitch", which Rose Melberg released on her first solo album, Portola, in 2009. I've never heard the cassette version, so I can't confirm. Unfortunately, the cassette is both extremely rare and extremely expensive, with some other exclusives from big-name artists, like Billie Joe from Green Day.
