Looks like between the '95 demos with Peter and the '96 session with Paul for Recurring Dream we pretty much have enough songs for an album now. Given that the songs on the Afterglow bonus disc were pretty much in the order they were recorded in I thought I'd mix them up a bit to make it sound more like an album than a collection of unreleased songs. So far I've made up:
- Help Is Coming
- Spirit of the Stairs
- Not the Girl You Think You Are
- Loose Tongue
- I Don’t Know You
- Taste of Something Divine
- Everything is Good For You
I think I read that Help Is Coming was being considered for an album title?? So I've used that title with the cover from the single (and also left the single as the first two tracks).
Wondering if there were any more songs from Try Whistling This demoed by Crowded House? I think Something So Strong mentioned Astro as being from the '95 session... but it's been years since I read it so I may have made that up.
It didn't take me long to do this so it's not the best, but Loose Tongue into I Don't Know You and Taste of Something Divine into Everything is Good For You worked very well. Would love to hear some thoughts on this!
P.S. I also remember seeing an old post here that mentioned Drug Song and Descension as two titles from the York St sessions. Can anyone shed any light on these? As Neil said there were only a few songs recorded there I'm guessing that these are just working titles for some of the songs above but you never know...
P.P.S. Does anyone know how to rip the audio of Instinct off FTTW? I tried but I got Instinct and Italian Plastic all mashed together. I feel like the '95 version would work better than the RD version on this collection.
