This limited edition vinyl LP was created to accompany the deluxe edition of the Savage Impressions book published by P22 in February 2020. Tape Excavation was compiled by Bruce Licher in early 2019 after scouring through dozens of boxes of cassette tapes from rehearsals, demos, and other recordings to find previously unheard nuggets from his various musical endeavors. Dating from his first recordings for Independent Project Records in 1980 to a rehearsal demo of his current musical endeavor SR2, a collaboration with his wife Karen Nielsen Licher, this compilation contains 14 intriguing windows into the ongoing evolution of Licher’s sound and musical vision.
A little over 400 gold vinyl copies and 250 black vinyl copies were made. 350 gold were matched up with their deluxe books leaving very few gold vinyl available à la carte. P22 also has 50 of the black vinyl edition for sale.
