From the Coop is Buckethead's third special release. It consists of songs from early demo tapes that Buckethead recorded when he was around 19 years old and just starting to get serious with his guitar playing. A final cassette was with all 3 demo cassettes put together was made in 2000 for a CD release that wouldn't happen for another 8 years. [2] As with Acoustic Shards, this album is more of a specialty release rather than his latest studio effort.

According to producer Jas Obrecht:[3]

The announcement of the release of the CD was made at, a semi-official fan forum. On this site, the members were given the opportunity to purchase the CD at a discounted price for three days, an offer that has since ended.

In the CD booklet, Obrecht has included reproductions of Buckethead's handwriting from the 1988 cassettes.[4]

Obrecht also stated that:

The album artwork was drawn by Buckethead and shows himself when he was young in a ghostly coop.
