Metroid It is really difficult to listen to this album without finding something deeply personal about it to suit you. A timeless record of some of the best of Jim's early days as a musician. Favorite track: Focus On Floor Care.

Eliot Lash So many interesting experiments on here from Jim's early days of making lo-fi tapes. Many of the songs have held up quite well, and a few have even appeared on more recent soundtracks. Worth a buy if you are in the mood to dive into Jim's back catalogue. Favorite track: Shape Of Things.

David Giles A highly underrated album. If you love lo-fi music, this is for you. While it might be a bit too odd for most people, if this is your type of music, you will absolutely love this. Favorite track: The Fantabulous World Of Jimmy 3-Guts.

Alucard3598 Jim Guthrie's "best of" album of his cassette works, along with some newcomers. An LP with very old recording techniques and a whole lot of charm. <3 Favorite track: Roads And Paper Routes.

Charles. This is a highly nostalgic album, at least for me. There's something oddly specific that it pinpoints- something found simply within the way it sounds. There are laughs, there are tears, and there is a pretty great album. This one, in case my stupidity got in the way of what I meant Favorite track: Thousand Songs.

Evan Conrod not my favourite Jim Guthrie album (thats now more than ever) but my god it is great to hear some of my favourite jim songs re done, i.e sexy drummer and not a word. As allways the music is well produced and generally well done. always recomended. Favorite track: Sexy Drummer (bonus track).
