One big disappointment actually.Thank you! A bit of disappointment that it fades out...
I don't think it has been edited. It's a completely different version.One big disappointment actually.
They have simply taken the version that has been circulating on the internet since 2009/10 and edited bits out, particularly towards the end where the tape sounds like it has been chewed up.
They have also removed some of the lyrics, and in a fairly shoddy way.
The best example is the bit in the original demo where Moz sings and when you are dancing and laughing, living and loving, which has now been edited to and when you are dancing and laughing and loving.
It's a real shame, I was looking forward to listening to this particular recording in pristine quality. I guess such thing does not exist, so they have used the best available source.
No, most leaks such as the ones mentioned here are from scrapped album deluxe editions.You know the stuff that leaks will tend to be unfinished versions run onto cassette at the studio for the band members to listen to overnight or whatever, not necessarily the 'final' mix from the session.
I realise there was this recent mass leak of the CDR set from Warners, however what I said generally applied until that point. That Rubber Ring from 8 years ago sounds like it was sourced from a cassette, though listening to it again I reckon it's a completely different demo rather than an earlier mix of the Drone one.No, most leaks such as the ones mentioned here are from scrapped album deluxe editions.
