Mike Shields - Mike Shields (1990)

Here's another Sundae Sound tape that we can tell you about! Well, a bit, anyways. This looks like maybe the first release for Mike Shields, who has since gone on to a career as a composer for film and screen (that's his work on the recent classic Ginger Snaps). 

It probably makes sense, given where his career has taken him, that this tape is a quality affair with well-written songs and solid production. From the opening bars of "Nothing Is Forever," there's some pretty catchy stuff at play here. This also gives us an excuse to share this video from his first full-length CD, featuring a whole pile of Calgary community landmarks:
