The Girls of The Golden West ~ Songs for You: Old and New, Album Number Eight (1988)

Another big thanks to Jess Norrick for the cassette and the matching artwork she threw together. For some reason, this cassette was missing the first track and the first few seconds of the second track. I used the first track from another rip that I fixed up as best I could and also pieced together the first few seconds from the second track to this cassette transfer as best I as I could. Thanks to "Countryhank" for scans of the original insert.

The Girls of the Golden West ~ Songs for You: Old and New, Album Number Seven (1988)

More thanks to Jess Norrick for these cassettes and the matching cover art she put together. This cassette was extremely shrill sounding and hissy. I had to run this one through an RIAA equalizer before I did noise reduction and restoration and this actually helped a little. Thanks to "Countryhank" for scans of the original insert.
