Just pressed up, a tour only twelve inch record (w download card) that collects all the ‘band demos’ currently in circulation–8 tracks recorded by Lee and rhythm section of Steve Shelley and Irwin Menken prior to the sessions for Between the Tides and the Times. Also a 7″ with the two ‘alternate mixes’ of songs from the album. These mixes were done by Lee and co-producer John Agnello while mixing the album. The alt mix of Shouts (stripped down riot mix) features mainly the rhythm section plus Lee’s parts, as well as the vocals of Leah Singer and Kathy Leisen, but without the parts put on by John Medeski, Nels Cline and Alan Licht. The alt mix of Stranded (solo acoustic mix) features Lee w solo acoustic guitar, w/o Nels Cline’s lap steel parts.
These records can be found at Lee Ranaldo Band shows, and are now available thru the Sonic store as well. Check HERE.
