Notes

Final "untitled tape 3" of the recognized Girly-Sound demos. Various versions of this issue exist but most are associated with the generic Girly-Sound cover image (which was also used on some of the Girls Girls Girls demos). There also are inconsistencies on the track order in the compilation and multiple version exist. Single sided cassette but occasionally will be found with same content both sides.

From Mad Girl's Love Song 2005 review: The tapes, sometimes called the Girlysound demos, are a collection of songs Liz wrote while in her late teens/early twenties and recorded on a four-track tape recorder in her bedroom at her parent's home. In the spirit of DIY, they have a very lo-fi sound, featuring only Liz and her electric guitar; however, Liz used overdubbing and multi-tracking to give the songs a more layered effect. Some copies of songs also have a fair amount of tape hiss: people who had the tapes simply made copies of copies and distributed them. Lyrically, the songs are diverse, covering everything from war, relationships, and pimps to jobs and the black market for infants.
