Harmful if Swallowed

Harmful if Swallowed - MP3's

Here are MP3's of tunes from Harmful if Swallowed, a band I played with in New York. We have a "greatest hits" selection of our favorites, some of which are live, and some of which are studio. On the studio demo tape, the sound quality is good, as you'd expect, but the playing isn't always as lively as on the live shows, perhaps also as you'd expect.
Enjoy. ---- Bruce Donald
