Robert Deeble is fairly known in the Christian music underground. This tape is a some-what eclectic collection of acoustic folk songs, random recordings / samples, and even a guitar alternative rock track or two. I have heard this tape before, but I was surprised to find out that “Pop Song” was recorded for a Mark Krischak compilation that never happened. Deeble was later signed to Brainstorm Artists International to release an album as Days Like These, but he also had a few other recordings reach national attention as well.
