Ken Stringfellow's Saltine

Since their first CD, I've been a Posies fan and somewhat of a completist. Today, I've posted a long out-of-print side-project by Ken Stringfellow called Saltine.

Saltine issued a single CD in 2000 during a period when the Posies had "broken up". The writing is strong, however the production is certainly of its time. In addition to Ken, Saltine included Braden Blake of Super Deluxe, a band that was very much influenced by the Posies.

Saltine only officially released the six song EP included here . I've also included a live broadcast concert from the same era. The recording and songs are quite good.

Enjoy and as always let me know if I am missing anything.

I bought this disc after buying his Ken's fantasic solo debut. He appears either as "The Saltines" or "The Solteens" on a Badfinger tribute disc. I got it from a blog, so I've never seen the actual disc. Here the AMG review:

If you'd like the track, or the whole disc, I can rip it and send you a link.

This is awesome! Except one thing, the Blake song "Durian" is cut off and it goes straight to reveal love, no!!! I really like that song, I had a cassette tape recording of this show ages ago and was happy to find this but if anyone knows where I can find that missing cut...
