Wow, great find! I just listened to all of that tracks, I loved hearing the early version, especially Santa Monica; I don't think I've ever hear a version earlier than what appeared on Sparkle & Fade. Western Edition is pretty good, too bad the quality isn't as good as This Is Your Death Song. If you listen to the harmonizing they use in the middle of the song, it definitely would have fit right in with So Much For The Afterglow sound. I'll see what I can find out about these songs, especially Western Edition. Thanks again for finding these!

Can't really understand any of the words on Western Edition but I'm really enjoying the music and melody.

I'll get to work on converting the YouTube videos to MP3 and post them on the site like I did with This Is Your Death Song.

I'm waiting to hear back from Dr. Majordomo on the details, but I tried some EQ'ing to parse the lyrics out. My guesses:

I saw her talking on the phone
Standing in the blowing cold
With a whisper in her eye
As the years took flight and the world went blind

I was just another angry man
That no one there could understand
But ? listened to the fight
Strapped it all down tight ?
And let the fears unwind

No one could ever know
Cause the wounds don't show
And there was nowhere to go

In the middle of a fantasy
Watching as the cars go by outside alone
For only just one moment make believe

She's not what she would seem to be
She's not what she would seem
In the middle of a fantasy

? felt a humor ? in her soul
Dark smiles ? under clouds ?
She always laughed about the time
That the elevator died
With us trapped inside

I always found her sleeping facing north
She'd heard stories of an astral form
Where she could slip outside her mind
Just slip into the night
And leave the world behind

All the stories that we told
And the miles we rolled
But there was nowhere to go
And nothing left to save

And as time went by
I counted all the chances I'd received
Answers left beside ? the only mission in deceit ??
One more time just waiting for the moment to believe
She was going to save me

Anyways, is this really Art singing the song?? I seriously do not recognize his voice..

I think your right, I'll bet it is Greg, he had some filters on his voice for The Honeymoon Song and What Do I get, and since this is a demo they probably didn't do any vocal effects.

Sorry, late to posting. Per Dr. Majordomo:
majordomo3nteract wrote: Yeah, that's not Art singing on that track. I probably should have mentioned that on the YouTube posting. Art voice was shot by the time they got to that song. They debated just leaving it as an instrumental (this session was really nothing for nothing; Capitol didn't need it and the guys didn't want to do it). Art's guitar tech at the time (I'm blanking; I think his name was Brian) had heard the song during rehearsals and offered to lay down the vocals. I think he was trying to do his best imitation. As you know, they tried to record this song again during the Afterglow sessions, but I think they figured it wasn't right for the album. I'm not sure why it didn't make either of the Volume's; maybe it was too old by that point.

The first and third question mark sound like they're saying April.

OK, I got a little more information on the demo and Western Edition, it was a demo recorded solely for the purpose of the annual Hungry & Hollow April Fools prank.
