All songs are by Guided by Voices. All are performed by GbV except for 2, 7, 8, 12, 13, and 20: those are all cover versions from the album Don’t Stop Now: Um Tributo ao Guided By Voices (Transfusão Noise Records), and the artists are listed in parentheses after the song title in each case. The label has the album available for free download at The GbV albums that the cover songs are originally from are listed in the same manner as the others.

This episode was intended to be a tribute to the “classic” era of Guided by Voices (1993-1996), upon discovering that this lineup would be reuniting and playing concerts. A departure from what would be the norm if the podcast had been around long enough to establish such a thing, this episode consisted entirely of GbV songs.

In keeping with the Papers for the Border ethos, the songs contained in this episode are mainly ones that are off the beaten path. Hopefully there will still be some discoveries to be made for the casual GbV fan. Enjoy!
