These GBV covers by BTW Real Estate’s frontman appear on Guided By Guided By Voices, a cassette compilation out via Wild Animal Kingdom. In the spirit of a Robert Pollard collage, he opted to pair songs from different albums (Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes, respectively). Interestingly, Real Estate bandmate Alex Bleeker shows up on the comp, too: I always figured Real Estate were guided by Galaxie 500, the Grateful Dead, weed, Uncle Wiggly, and Ridgewood.
