Default I'm Alone Again

The last thing I want to do is clog this section up with pointless threads...
But I'm really interested about the song.
I think I've maybe heared it 3 or 4 times, unfortunately, I think it's the only song I don't have in any format.
And was just after information on it really?
What year/ album was it recorded with?
Is it even a Foo Fighters song/ cover? Was it a B-Side, I'm 99% sure it wasn't.
Have they ever played it live?
Why is there a clean/ unclean version?
I just literally know nothing about the song and was just after some general information if at all possilbe please? If any one wants to message me so the thread can be closed at this busy time then that's cool too,
Cheers

It was recorded in early TCATS sessions. The one version I have on my comp is from the X-Files sessions I think where they did a few demos of TCATS + Down In the Park. It wasn't technically a B-Side, more of just an unreleased demo, and it is an original.

It wasn't really a TCATS session. It was recorded in January 1996 at Bob Lang's studio. It was pretty much the first studio session with the actual band. Over a three day period the band recorded Enough Space, Butterflies, I'm Alone Again, My Hero, and Down In the Park. DITP was the only song released from the session.

Yes, it is an original Foo song. Some of the guitar bits were recycled for Gimme Stitches.

Nope. Never released.

No.

The only recording that surfaced isn't very clear. Maybe some fans have had a go at trying to clean it up, but there's no clear clean version out there circulating.

The "clean" version you're referring to is likely the horrible noise reduced version I heard some years ago. Some people might like that, I thought it sounded terrible myself. The 'noise' may have gone, but so has half of the actual music and dynamics, leaving a warbly shell of a song.

I uploaded the best sounding raw version in that thread someone linked, but here is also a remastered version WITHOUT noise reduction/hiss reduction or any of that garbage. Just this:

Quote:
*Speed Corrected and Eq adjustment based on Down In The Park official release
*Stereo Re-Alignment to eliminate timing difference of left/right channels
*Sound drop-outs repaired
*Maximum peak level set to -0.10 dB (no over-normalization)
Credit goes to a Mike Wilkinson.

Because it was 1996, does this mean Goldsmith was on this recording?

Thanks for linking this. I knew all of this was out there but never heard the raw versions. A fan learned something new today.

Re: the quality

I think it's gonna be limited just because the 3 or so 1st gen tapes all were kinda played to hell before anyone even dared share or trade it and then when it did go out, it was a generation (maybe even two) older....This is going back literally 14 years so the exact tree is hard to remember but everything that was in public circulation started on analog casette tapes

I tried checking mine not too long ago and it was worn enough that it would be a waste of effort to try it as the tape just has some dead spots on it that sound worse

Yeah the 'best' copy is a third gen tape. I've heard rumors the original source was a DAT, but never heard of anyone having it.

the DAT was a studio tape and the person who had it was connected to the studio. That was used to make a casette copy and it kinda sat in the "maybe 3 or 4 people had it" status for a good 6-12 months before something traded it and then it spread from there

And of course since this was before the average home user had the ability to really digitize shit, most people probably were dumb like me an listened to their own copies ad nauseum instead of dubbing it then listening to that only.

Any chance of finding anyone who had/has a first gen tape then? It'd be nice to get this session in better quality.
