The raw series was conceived as the result of several bands that we were interested in releasing not being able to provide high quality studio recordings and thus not ever materializing. Its more about the concept of the buyer being ok with less than perfect audio recordings and something a little more RAW in nature. And at the same time, It's about exposing some new and inspiring talent that otherwise may not have made it due to limits outside their control. I'll likely go low budget on future Raw Series releases, but for this initial release, we went all out. Enjoy!
