Boomkat Product Review:
By no means a release of new or current Don Caballero material (and originally released in 1999), ‘SinglesBreaking Up (Vol. 1)’ offers quite a range of the band’s history to appreciate.
"The oldest recordings found here were recorded in a ½” 8 track studio by Lee Hollihan of Valencia, PA (the original ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ man) for only $25 an hour. The next batch were recorded by Steve Albini in his once homestudio and were a part of the For Respect sessions. Program 10 was also recorded in this same studio by colleague engineer Bob Weston.• Program 11 was recorded in Detroit by engineer Al Sutton and was a part of the sessions for ‘Don Caballero 2’. Lastly, programs 12-13 were recorded again by Steve Albini in the B room portion of this Chicago studio Electrical Audio. simply this: 7” phonograph singles breaking up, in the kindof setting of giving Abby Road back to the people.
With the exception of programs 12-13, these songs were recorded in the early part of the 1990s. The intention was not to release them in this form, if at all but to give therecord company a rough idea of the songs Don Cab at the time. The ‘punky’ songs were written with the sole intention of obtaining a record contract. It seemed at the time that contracts flowed like water for this kind of music. did, eventually, manage to sign a deal with Touch and Go. It is interesting to see how some of these songs, or parts of them, developed into others that have become wellknown."
