In an effort to eliminate redundancy, it's been decided that t.scene releases should NOT post the 2000 compilation Trumbull Scene Volume 1 and the 2002 compilation Trumbull Scene Volume 2 with their original track listings. Many of the songs on these 2 compilations will be available here in future posts. And so instead a new collection has been compiled: A 2-disc set (or 2-zip file set, whatever).

Trumbull Scene: The Big Hits features more than half of the songs from Vol 1 and Vol 2, plus many other previously unavailable treasures from the t.scene vaults:

...The original version of "Mackerel Sky" from Hyve. ...
...3 of the (at least) 10 interpretations of Buds 1998 hit single "Friends." ...
...Both exclusive Splice originals from 1999's More Crap EP. ...
...All 3 tracks from The Juicebox Institute's page. ...
...Previously unreleased live tracks from Bernie, The Smooth Hands, and Lowt Ide. ......And so much more....

And here's some additional information (or "liner notes") regarding Trumbull Scene: The Big Hits, seeing as how everyone reading this is more than likely on the verge of bursting with hardly contained excitement at the mere announcement of this release...

Disc 1

(1999. from their self-titled LP.)

2. Bernie "You Got Issues (live)" (2:40)

All four songs were recorded and nearly completed, but were later lost due to computer failure. The demo of "I Want You To Want Me" was recovered, however...
