A curated collection from the Farm Tapes Series featuring demos, finished recordings and sonic experiments recorded between 1985 and 2001 by Todd Parker with the only requirement being that the recordings were produced on a cassette 4-track machine. A Fostex X-15 was used until 1989 and from then on a Yamaha MT3X was the primary recorder.

Trips and Visits covers the period from 1989-1992. The first "album" the Tadpoles ever formally released outside of a circle of friends was 1990's William's Doll, which reached a bigger audience due to several positive reviews from fanzines at the time, such as Factsheet 5. William's Doll contained a lot of samples from films / TV and elsewhere that were key to the whole concept -so, William's Doll is not formally available presently on CD or streaming services due to sample clearance issues. This album contains Side A of William's Doll (songs 1-5) with less obvious sample issues. The rest of this compilation contains more original cassette 4-track demos of songs later re-recorded for studio albums by Tadpoles or Todd Parker and The Witches.
