"In 2001 I started making and releasing handmade limited edition CDs available only through younggodrecords.com or at live shows. The recordings have been done with one stereo mic on my desk, no overdubs, just a casual performance in my office at home. Most of the songs presented are versions I recorded immediately after writing the song – they’ve also served as demos I can give to the musicians with whom I’m working to develop the material. The recordings were not (and are not) meant for general public consumption, just for dedicated followers and supporters of the music. these special packages have been instrumental in helping to fund studio recordings by Angels of Light, and now also Swans – serving both as collectible items and as fundraisers for the recording projects. Since these titles are all permanently out of print now, I’ve decided to make a digital collection of what I view as the highlights available." - M. Gira
