What a cool find! Joop, of Rufus Wainwright Message Board fame, found a copy of Rufus’s first collection of songs: a cassette that his father aggressively passed out to people to help out his son. Here is the playlist:

Side A
01) Foolish Love
02) Heart Like A Highway (previously known as That Night)
03) Money Song (previously known as The Money Song)
04) Danny Boy

Side B
01) Beauty Mark
02) Damned Ladies
03) Liberty Cabbage
04) Ashes
05) Matinee Idol

Here is a poor quality reproduction of a BBC video of young Rufus singing one of those “old” songs, “Foolish Love.”
