Real to Reel

Many recordings of the band exist! Plans are now in the works to finally get some of them released. Freddy Had this to say:
   
I was laying in bed recovering from a near fatal auto accident in January of 2001. It occured to me that had I actually died, all the tapes we made probably would have ended up in the trash. Well actually the recordings are pretty trashy and maybe they deserve to be there!!! Anyway I started archiving & re-mixing the surviving tapes. There are still a few missing things, but over all I think combined they could make a fun historical document.

Live Recordings

Live at St. Andrews Hall, Detroit

Multiple live recordings were made of the Covingtons, most suffer from poor fidelity, and yes very poor playing! Some of the better live recordings were made by the Trafelli brothers at Lilli's in Hamtramk. They were recording their band the Knaves, and luckily rolled one of the Covingtons too. An early sound board show also exists from the Blind Pig, in Ann Arbor.
