If people want to listen to any FF song (or any band) you'd think by now it would be as simple as going to their website, scrolling through a list of all their songs, and buying the ones they want.

Sadly not the case, and never likely to be.

Yes I think we deff agree on that - the prev "URL" there being the "here" that we are on (FF.com in some way). I did seriously shit on the plate of my own argument by adding the platform split stuff, but only because I was pre-knowing the reasons it could not easily happen one for one (where one DL equaled one "dollar" into Foo Central).

Because hell, if a band wanted to do that today, right now and say fuck you all, they might have contracts lasting up to 5 years into the future still in force. Metallica might be different lol.

I was going to parallel TV - then thought no Mike just stay on subject lol. It's waaaaay worse now for TV / Movies, and that's driving the bulldozer right down the hill, through the fields the actual production teams are working in, and directly at the town (snugly oblivious beside their screens) at ever increasing pace. Apple just jumped in, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Sony, Red Tube. Disney coming. I'm missing some and those are just the full net based options.

All the UK and US BC networks have online platforms. All the US ones also have old cable platforms FX, Starz, HBO, Showtime. The parents aren't even really trying to streamline/merge those terrestrial/cable platforms in most cases (for fear of losing brand identity) while knowing their content is all owned by one body, that they are charging twice, and that "on net" none of the FCC censorship provisions apply (the reason the PPV cable nets branched off in the first place). Which in and of itself is an utterly massive corporate "Fuck You" to consumers.

So every one of those now have unique net platforms, and again more I'm missing... Sky, F1TV, ESPN etc etc.

They almost ALL want, or will want a $8.99+/M US subscription fee before terrestrial broadcast gets turned off and people throw up their hands and go fuck it I'm a pirate lol. Only then will they start to properly merge under public pressure (after pocketing whatever they can).

Yes we sorta got there - Apple drove it, and IMHO the true direction died with Steve. They (Apple) then both missed the video inclusion side, You Tube didn't help diverting everyone to free audio and video (though they missed his point also and even with Goggle buying them are STILL unable to make a dent, which says a lot), Amazon got it but were too busy solidifying AWS and their corp deals (which OK have turned out rather nicely for them) to ram it home (though the are in full swing now)...

Meanwhile Netflix walked away with everyone's lunch... (and TV dinner) .

We won't now see shit all change in the audio world until video rights itself - and that's a ten year fuckstavagansa now IMHO.

Immaculate timing And thanks for posting it man

"Dear World,

Born on the bayou, we'll Razor you (live).

It's The sign,

We've got the Best of You (live)."


Seriously though

A) 11 songs, that's now up to a full CD. What's up with that? More impact needed? Time running short?
B) Management - A PM would have been fine to get me back onto the music, you didnt have to upload a whole album mid-post.

The DOA Demo is also on Five Songs and A Cover EP btw. Also why include 3 of the 4 covers recorded during the IYH era, and not include the Cream cover?

Sorry but vinyl for me (vs Spotify)
But I'd support you of all people have the right to first choice - some of us have veeery long memories
http://forum.foofighters.com/archive.../t-147417.html

Did any version ever sound much better than this (after the questionable clean attempts)?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEZvl65f304

It is definitely one of the few missing gems I desperately want in my fucket list (fuck it I need these songs properly released before I die).

2020 would be nicer for me than 2045

A much clearer version leaked.....I want to say last year? Memory not what it used to be.

Someone also remastered the new version to sound really good, IMO.

EDIT: Was on the anniversary this year. Here is a link to the remastered version that was still active, I'll up the raw version later.

Wow - agree - very good. Pulled the whole "work"
Utterly "Foo'd" by the fact it was another Mike and he called it the "Enough Space" EP, after I just posted the (holistical) "Enough Space" tour on another thread - that was seriously weird lol

V3 - about where I got to as well - in my case saying less was more and not being afraid to say don't over do it...

Yet these tracks seem to "defy" an analog cassette source. By which I mean logic says they must be from a very early gen (aka copy of the orig max). Yet other logic says in throwing your remaster you give nobody else the digital source.

And no two ways I respect that - I've done the same and deliberately. But I'm safeguarding the original tape source. So I'm left wondering if he's doing the same? Or very close.

As also his track numbering is noticeably different to yours as well.

Butterflies for me here is always distinct because the backing vocals "destroy" it vs 94. It's very odd actually hearing it SO clearly - makes me go seriously "throw it away" ... which they did. Maybe reading too much into into it - but yeah - my take it was sort of a Dave channeling Kurt masterpiece that just got lost in translation to Foo.

Just comments though - I'm Alone here is stellar. If you have raw source I'd be keen to hear it. I have a few things I know I really need to get sorted...

Is it just me - or is this well known elsewhere...?

01020225
Tracklist:
01 – The One
02 – Sister Europe
03 – Win Or Lose
04 – Planet Claire (Live at the Supper Club, New York, NY – October 2002)

00020225
Tracklist:
01 – The One
02 – Sister Europe
03 – Win Or Lose
04 – Planet Claire (Live at the Supper Club, New York, NY – October 2002)
05 – Normal
06 – Learn To Fly (Live at the Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles, CA – October 2002)
07 – Times Like These (Acoustic Version)
08 – Disenchanted Lullaby (Live Acoustic)

Hold on what... same title number just minus 1 on the second digit? That's odd I thought. Looks at track list... whoa OK, lower number has "entirely" (incl all of first release). They have seriously fucked up there


02050525
Tracklist:
01 – I’m In Love With A German Film Star
02 – FFL (Fat Fucking Lie)
03 – Kiss The Bottle
04 – Spill
05 – Skin And Bones
06 – DOA (Demo)

01050525
Tracklist:
01 – I’m In Love With A German Film Star
02 – FFL (Fat Fucking Lie)
03 – Kiss The Bottle
04 – Spill
05 – Skin And Bones
06 – DOA (Demo)
07 – World (Demo)
08 – Born On The Bayou
09 – Razor (Live Acoustic)
10 – The Sign
11 – Best Of You (Live at Quart Festival, Kristiansand, Norway – July 2005)

Hold on what... same title number just minus 1 on the second digit. Second release full / contains first release yet with lower number? That's not now odd - that's deliberate! Same songs enhanced in second version with lower number (twice in a row).

I wasn't even trying to be less confused - I was just properly looking - and yet I'm now ten times more confused.

Hopefully just someone in marketing having fun while they release all the back catalog on Digital in all regions...

And then Dave hits us with the 2020 title and we go you fucking C#$&... yeah that's what will happen...

Once a Grohlton... always...

Hmmm 24 Dec 2018 HQ YT... to a 24 Jan 2019 speed corrected flac.

Certainly a possible source - or source of the source (length works etc).

Fucking full credit though - the edit is stunning if that's a version of the working source - even YT doesn't normally "degrade" that much. So that's a lot of work to layer song tracks back onto each other and equalise.

And I don't know... sucks... this was the whole reason I matched you to then...

"OldFooFan
February 28th 2011, 10:08 AM
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.
Is it even a Foo Fighters song/ cover?
Yes, it is an original Foo song. Some of the guitar bits were recycled for Gimme Stitches.

Was it a B-Side, I'm 99% sure it wasn't.
Nope. Never released.

Have they ever played it live?
No.

Why is there a clean/ unclean version?
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."



And having officially supported your hijack of the post... I'm relieved I at least posted something remotely current before we storm
