In 1998, the Klaatu Mailing List decided to do a tribute to Klaatu. Jaimie Vernon and Mark Hershberger organized the submission of recordings and the creation of the "KAASette" from those recordings. The "KAASette" was a big hit on the mailing list and an expanded edition was planned for CD. The "KAAS CD" included all of the original recordings from the "KAASette" as well as some newly submitted recordings.
The "KAASette" and the "KAAS CD" were a limited edition items. Advance orders were taken and the quantity manufactured was directly related to the advance orders. Both items are no longer available.
After recent discussion on the Klaatu Mailing List, JaiMark Productions has approved offering MP3 recordings of the tracks from the "KAAS CD" on the Klaatu web page.
Keep in mind that these recordings were, for the most part, not professional recordings. Some were done on home cassette recorders. Some were done on cassette based porta-studios. Some were done on reel-to-reel home project studios. Some were done on more advanced home project studios. And at least one was done at a 24-track professional studio. Because of this, the quality will vary greatly from track to track. I'm only posting these in MP3 format, not WAVE format since they would be too large for WAVE files to be usefull.
So without further ado: Here Is The Entire KAAS CD. Click
on the song title to download the MP3 for that song.
