108 - Spoken Words tape

Ripped and posted because of a request on the xCatalystx forums. This is 108's 'Spoken Words' tape from 1991. It's a seemingly random mix of explanations of songs from the at that time still to be released 'Holyname' album, Vic trying out stuff on his guitar, Vic doing what appears to be a Q&A at a Krishna gathering, kirtans, random rambles, and so on. I'm not sure what the deal was with this tape, and quite frankly it is not something one listens to a lot. But it's 108, and therefore it is worthwhile. End of story.

Because of the random nature of the contents, I decided not to attempt to turn each part into a separate mp3 and come up with a title and such. One mp3 for each side of the tape will have to do.

Also, my copy of the spoken words tape is not an original, but a 'bootleg' version, hence the bad quality cover that looks nothing like the original cover, which can be seen on the 108 website.

This spoken word tape was prior to any recording done by 108, and before Rob joined the band. I am the girl who is speaking on it.

Hey, I love your site. Thanks for all of the info on these bands. I'd really like to get a hold of this 108 spoken word, but it looks like the links have been pulled. Would you mind posting them again? Thanks!
