June 24, 1996 (Either/Or session at Heatmiser House)

Most fruitful recording period. Starts immediately after S/T release (mid 1995) and goes all the way until release-time (early 1997).

June 24, 1996 (Either/Or session at Heatmiser House)

Postby eddiebrock » Fri Sep 11, 2009 8:09 am

Date: June 24, 1996
Studio: Heatmiser House
Producer: Elliott Smith

Songs:

[U] Abused (electric overdubs added to instrumental recorded at the Shop)
[U] Alameda (instrumental + alternate lyrics+piano - take available by itself, circulating unofficially)
[O] Alameda (electric overdubs mixed w/instrumental+alternate lyrics+piano take only)
[O] Alameda
[O] Pictures of Me (instrumental - take not available by itself, but vocals came at a subsequent session)
[U] Pictures of Me (alternate lyrics and instrumentation)
[U] Go By (alternate take, vocals appear in left channel with Two Timed)
[O] Go By (Final vocals recorded, Two Timed vocals removed)

Note:

This session was taken from a reel found by Larry Crane and photographed by Glorious Noise blog.

In July 2011, Larry revealed that a version of Abused appeared as an Untitled song on this reel (and it's a 2" reel, not a 1/2"), an instrumental reduction mix with overdubs but no vocal. Presumably, this is the version that was leaked as part of the "Unfinished/Suppressed Basement Tapes" leak in early 2009.

What does "untitled" refer to?

^^No one knows and I don't think Larry said, that's just what elliott wrote on the reel.

Wait! Gasp! Maybe it's the LFNNY song!

^^nope. Per Larry:

"No Name #5" (I think that's right) was "Gone at Last" up until release.

damn, I used to know all this!

It's been a while,

also it currently seems that we will have to wait a long time to find out if it's LFNNY

^^Could be, but I wouldn't call it the musical equivalent of "vapor-ware." I know for a fact the comp is being worked on right now because I am a little involved with this project myself (although no, I haven't heard the Elliott track nor do I know what it is).

One thing I'll share is that I think Kevin is not really in any kind of rush or against any deadline. He's doing this on his off time from other stuff. There are also songs from many other good artists. Some really cool stuff. And it's for charity, so when it gets done, it will come out.

I'd say it's still possible that "Untitled" is No Name #5, which had a title and then lost it before release.
It also could well be "Going Nowhere", which was untitled at the time of the release of either/or.

Updated information to reveal the "Untitled" song per comments from Larry Crane in July 2011.

Updated for the official release of another mix of Alameda - the previously unofficially circulating alternate lyrics version has been mixed with previously unreleased electric overdubs.
