Yeah, which made me resent how it was glossed over in Our Band Could Be Your Life.

Cool, I've been waiting for a demo/bootleg of Rock n Roll Ghost to surface for a while now. Also I haven't read many rock bios in my life but I just want to echo the sentiment that Trouble Boys is wonderful.

So I'm going back to the Don't Tell A Soul reissue from 2008. There's a demo of Talent Show that's really good and assuming there's more for this session, why aren't they on the box? There's also a take of We'll Inherit the Earth subtitled Mix 1. I'm curious if that's from the Bearsville sessions.

Regardless, I have always thought this album was overlooked and needed a good remix ala Velvet Underground's VU/1969 sessions, and now we're getting it. Extremely hyped.

They released the new Talent Show mix today:



They definitely curbed a lot of the 80's production (at least by listening to the drums). I'm really excited to hear the rest of this.

Things I notice after a comparison:

- Removal of reverb on both vocals and drums
- Dialogue and additional drums in the beginning
- Random banjo in the 2nd half

Evaluation: I definitely like it more than the original cut

I suspect the problems with that one are baked in and cannot easily be unfucked like Don't Tell a Soul can.

I mean they remixed The Beatles shit so I think if this goes well, Tim or Pleased to Meet Me is next.
