Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

Thanks Olivier, and nice to see you here. So there's no direct quote from Sterling about the tape damage then , just paraphrasing by the journalist. Not that it really matters either way, but I still think it might be Chinese whispers. It just seems odd that the rest of the multitrack for that song...

Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

What's the source of this thing about the studio version having a vocal that's lost due to tape damage? How do we know it wasn't just left as a backing track? I read it recently. I forget where. It was an interview with Sterling Morrison and at one point he was, in retrospect, talking about the 80s...

Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

I too feel like it must be pre-gymnasium. The unfinished lyrics are the biggest clue. Though there is at least one instance of him improvising lyrics to an already finished song, Pale Blue Eyes. But on this performance of GIFIL he’s actually using non-words to fill some lines which to me suggests a...

Barry Stock has had 2 goes at "combining" (both on YouTube) and the 2nd version is really good. I'm not sure that this vocal would improve it.
There is a new software for demixing and isolating. I wonder whether Barry Stock used that. I kind of agree that this vocal might not fit as well, though.

Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

This is very strange. To me the recording sounds genuine - in fact it sounds just like I'd expect the Upbeat version to. Except to my ears the cheering at the start and end sound the same, and sound very tacked on - as if somebody has taken a demo/rehearsal version of the song and tried to make it ...

Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

I think it has got tape damage. Is there any chance this could be the missing studio version? (Why it would have an audience added I have no idea though)

Re: "a" a novel

Other characters in the same chapter are D (Drella), G (Gerard), P (Paul). What info suggests that D = Warhol? I've always he thought he was the A of the title. Some chapters start with the full names of the people in the section. DRELLA is used, which then becomes D in the rest of the conversation...

Re: Guess I'm Falling In Love fake live version?

Wow. Clearly nothing we have heard before. This was uploaded in 2014! If so, why have we not heard it before? Sterling Morrison said that there is a studio version with vocals, but the audience at the end suggests that this is not it. And also the studio version has tape damage. I could easily accep...

Re: "a" a novel

Another unreadable book on my shelf I intend to read in full one day. I've enjoyed the parts I have read. The typing/transcript itself is entertaining. Billy Name had the sense to make sure the mistakes were not corrected. Here's what I know from dipping in.... As we know the book is supposedly 24 h...
