Notes:

* Regarding "Yay" - Jennifer Chiba states that "I named it yay. We had just discussed being symbiotes (and maybe starting a band called yay! symbiotes!) it was created in a time of joy. He had some crazy equipment setups to get all those noises. It's amazing to hear that song full volume on the studio monitors. It was a fun time and he was happy even tho suffering too."
* King's Crossing was completed on October 12, 2003 per charlie ramirez, webmaster of sweetadeline.net
* Jennifer Chiba plays bass on the Beatles covers "I'll Be Back"
* Mama's Boy is a reworking of the song "Either/Or."
* It's Alright is the Either/Or era composition "Go By" with changed lyrics
* I Don't Give A F*** is a reworking of Elliott's college era song "Where I Get it From."
* It is unclear how complete the recording of "Isolation" is.
* Let's Get Lost was recorded in Summer 2003 per charlie ramirez, webmaster of sweetadeline.net
* Memory Lane was recorded in October 2003 per charlie ramirez, webmaster of sweetadeline.net
* Stickman was completed on October 11, 2003 per charlie ramirez, webmaster of sweetadeline.net
* Coast to Coast was completed in May 2003, per charlie ramirez, webmaster of sweetadeline.net

Re: I Don't Give A F***, is that info from Larry?
It helps if you mention the source where possible - the site is more collaborative that way, which is important for people sharing information (and other goodies).

^^The information is from charlie ramirez.

However like my inspiration Alex Roberts at livenirvana there might be times I have to not cite sources so someone doesn't get bombarded with questions about a certain piece of unreleased music, so I can't necessarily say where info always comes from.

Not sure how I missed this one. Added information about the "Go By" demo which had been mentioned by Fritz Michaud in 2006.

It is unclear how complete this version is.
