    hmmm the BC list looks somewhat better, still a lot of material we already have… seems this was not that productive a phase for the band and still Adore gets the full deal very extensive release while SD and Gish or even PI were quite smaller in the bonus section…

    also: 17 missing from the Mono release? strange…

    oh well, i will be getting this too, might skip the vinyl though… any news if the LP is mono or stereo?

    Something tells me the Machina release will be extra special, my Spider Sense is tingling that they’re putting extra effort into it… Well, here’s to wishful thinking: Ker-link. 8)

    the original mono release (on vinyl) also didn’t have 17. it’s the same mix, but now released – "for the first time" – on cd.

    i guess the lp reissue will be the stereo mix, including 17, on 4 lp sides. this just seems the most likely scenario to me.

    yeah but it’s quite strange as 17 would fit now and didn’t fit on the 3LP sides of the mono vinyl…
    oh well… minor detail.

    SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT

    just started to listen and have a lot of reviews to do and other work, so haven’t had a chance to dive into this amazing treasure trove because it is so much this time around…

    however, remarkable >
    Disc 3: In a State of Passage
    07. What If? (Streeterville Demo) > stunning song!!!!
    10. The Ethers Tragic (Instrumental/ 2014 Mix/ CRC Demo) > very nice insight into the building of the Batman tracks
    11. The Guns of Love Disastrous (Instrumental/ 2014 Mix/ CRC Demo)
    15. For Martha (Take 1/ CRC Demo)
    18. For Martha (Take 2/ Instrumental/ CRC Demo) > both are amazing!!!!

    Disc 4: Chalices, Palaces and Deep Pools
    01. For Martha (Symphonic Snippet/ Instrumental) > a nice, the electric solo part layer!!!
    02. Crestfallen (Matt Walker Reimagined/ 2014) > superb remix!
    08. Eye (2014 Mix/ From the ‘Lost Highway’ Soundtrack) > amazing remix, much more depth!
    09. Saturnine (For Piano and Voice) > meh, pretty damn awful true demo, loads of work to be done there… :)
    10. Cash Car Star (Matt Walker Reimagined/ 2014) > damn, loads of work needed to be done there, luckily it was done later :)
    12. Perfect (No Strings Version) > very dry version, a brilliant song, love this sparse take
    15. Indecision (Sadlands Demo) > uhm, why? BC tinkering with electronics without the assistance of Bon Harris and Bjorn, kinda cute…

    Disc 5: Malice, Callous and Fools
    01. Let Me Give the World to You (Adore Outtake) > brilliant song, just doesn’t fit on the album in any concievable way as far as I am concerned…agree with BC, might have been a nice stand alone single, does have a feel quite like Untitled…
    02. Tear (From Digital Transfer) > massive!
    03. Cross (Adore Outtake) > features some nice cross overs into Glass & The Ghost Children meets Eye… ;)
    04. Because You Are (Adore B-Side) > LOUD!

    more to follow at the Listening Party :) :) :)

    a couple more :) >
    Disc 5: Malice, Callous and Fools
    08. Blissed and Gone (Drone Version) > meh, didn’t just click with this song is my guess, so many versions tried and tested…
    09. Heaven (Instrumental/ Sadlands Demo) > bloody great rocking song; never heard anything like this before from the Adore-sessions era…
    10. Daphne Descends (Matt Walker Reimagined/ 2014) > supreme version; my preferred version; epic and highly digitally enhanced with lots of extra layers brought out – a true stunner!!! I would not mind the least bit to hear the whole album redone / remixed by Matt – the Nitzer Ebb-beat (slightly Front 242-ish) is menacing here!
    11. Saturnine (Matt Walker Reimagined/ 2014) > moving further into gothic territory, gets pretty close to the Batman-songs; futurtistic rock galore, quite haunting and pounding – again: supreme version; my prefeered version and I can very much so see this work on a dark / gothic / wave dance night dance floor – vocals very much up front and direct; would have been a smashing single and only now it occurs to me how akin this song is to Ava Adore, like sonic siblings… :) :)

  • #47565

    Sven
    Spectator

    what’s also pretty clear from several songs ( like Do You Close Your Eyes?) is that BC was playing around with a lot of ideas melodywise that landed on the Batman-tracks… these outtakes might not be awesome in their own right, but – more than any other re-issue before – these do project an amazing sonic image of TSP in this time frame with creativity floating in several songs and finding its place in the final Batman-tracks… sonically this is somewhat between Adore and Eye, with some Ransom-inflections. and: it makes total sense…
    also: with MCIS / TAFH the band jammed out a lot of tracks and used snippets and riffs to build songs… with Adore its obviously the case BC did most of the work and worked on ideas into \"songs\" and eventually with the help of producers et al (most definately Flood) into real songs. there’s very little to none \"jamming\" here, but I guess you could see these \"songs\" as \"jams\" of sorts…
    extremely interesting historically and I really feel BC has hit a home run with this re-issue! by far the very very very best so far!
    I mean…
    Gish > BC kinda did not want to dive into what went on before, as in: going back to the really early years with the earliest versions of what would become the hippy trippy rock sound of Gish, plus: there’s not that much from the studio as there was not much time nor budget.
    SD > BC kinda went the same way as with Gish and SD was kind of scattershot with lots of ideas not fitting in the monolith sound and thus relegated to b-side and eventually PI status…
    PI > basically that’s PI plus a single disc version of Mashed Potatoes and the first demo tape
    MCIS > paints a bloody amazing picture of the creativity at the peak, building the album with all the numerous takes, demos, et al.
    TAFH > true display of all the creative forces at work live (Double Door) and in studio jams and trying out totally different areas…

    Now with Adore – which in my opinion is maybe the most coherent TSP album sonically and also musically – all seems to click quite amazingly in terms of presenting the building blocks and the ground work plus working towards the album version and also the translation to the live stage…

    Or maybe I just rekindled my love for the album that’s my most cherished one in the collection… :)

    the first four tracks from the Live disc 6…
    From Sao Paulo session????
    does anyone know which session?
    both SPFC and SPLRA don’t list this semi-acoustic session that sounds like a radio session without audience.

    the takes are AMAZING!!!!!! the recording is crystal clear!!!!

    also: very smart move to take show from the latter stages of the tour as the band shows sublime form…!

    I am not quite sure now if we have 3 or 4 Blissed and Gone versions…

    Blissed and Gone (Sadlands demo) = the version from Adore Demos I and II
    Blissed and Gone (CRC demo)
    Blissed and Gone (Drone version)

    Blissed and Gone as appears on SBA and JO > Now, I need to check if one of the other two on Adore Deluxe is the same…

    Once again – a very important song to BC, tried so many different approaches and it doesn’t get to be on the album or even a release as b-side… Amazing…

  • #47570

    So I checked… It’s four versions of Blissed and Gone

    Blissed and Gone (Sadlands demo) = the version from Adore Demos I and II
    Blissed and Gone (CRC demo) = rough take
    Blissed and Gone (Drone version) = subdued droney version
    Blissed and Gone (JO/SBA) – production master with drum machine

    Pretty awesome to see this evolution up close :) :) :)

    The Dodger Stadium live tracks sound extremely crystal clear and lack some punch for my taste – a bit on the thin side – the bootlegs are much more MASSIVE (tape saturation / tape noise sometimes works wonders)… but then again, the band is splendid here! :)

    On another note, most likely the event will be hosted in Rotterdam. I’m very happy to welcome you at my home, but with all of my kids running around the house it will be more convenient to host this party in a place known to be quiet during the weekends (my work-office).

    So who’s got what?

    I’m wondering how many different (country) releases there are for each version:
    – Super Deluxe box set (6CD+1DVD)
    – Double LP remastered
    – CD Album remastered (1CD)

    Did the box set and the double LP only get a US pressing, available worldwide? Or is there also a UK/EU pressing available?

    I assume there are multiple country pressings of the 1CD version. This was always the case with the previous reissues.

    Thanks for all info!

  • #47580

    I’ve only got the box set so far.
    It’s a US copy. (It has the FBI anti-piracy warning.) I bought it online, but I don’t think they sent it from the US. So I think for this box set, there’s only a US pressing.
    Correct?

    it’s not unlikely that the japanese box set release is just the US pressing, with some JP inserts/obi/… added. it’s always been like that before, if i’m not mistaken.
