ELO: "TIME" - "Double album - Reconstructed from the Acetate Line Up".(Upgrade).

Hello my friends !. Here we go again. Now with one of the best albums of the 80's. TIME by Electric Light Orchestra. A reconstructed version following the order established in the double acetate found in 2019.

Researching here and there, I have developed a new work for the enjoyment of all of you. It´s not the original recording, but it´s a reconstruction that,more or less, is  90% close to what a double album should have been.

Alternate cover only used on promotional poster.

“Time” was the ninth studio album by Electric Light Orchestra, released 2 July 1981 on Jet Records.The record topped the UK Albums Chart for two weeks, though it attracted mixed reviews for its heavy use of synthesizers and stylistic shift away from the orchestral rock of previous ELO albums. This album obtained August 29.1981,  a 16 place in the United States.

“Time” It is a concept album about a man from the 1980s who is taken to the year 2095, where he is confronted by the dichotomy between technological advancement and a longing for past romance.It´s considered the first major concept album devoted to time travel as well as ELO's most influential album. The musical style draws from the 1950s, new wave, reggae, rockabilly and the work of artists such as the Beatles, Phil Spector and the Shadows.Time is a "future-set rock opera"

Produced by:Jeff Lynne. Engineered by: Mack, Bill Bottrell.

Recorded in: Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany with some sessions taking place at Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.

Jeff Lynne: Lead vocals, backing vocals, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, piano, strings & synthheizers. - Bev Bevan: Drums & percussion – Richard Tany: Piano, syntheizers, strings & guitar and Kelly Groucutt: Bass guitar & backing vocals.

Ghislaine: French verse on "Hold on tight". Sandi: Girl´s voice on Yours truly 2095 and Rainer Pietsch: Strings conducted.

Five singles came out from this album:

“Hold on tight” / “When Time Stood Still”, it was released: 17 July 1981. On September 15, achieves a 4 place in the UK and October 3 achieves the 10 in the US. This single release is the first under the name ELO, the band returns to The Electric Light Orchestra as they change record company in 1986 to CBS / Epic. There is a promo single promo, Jet Records 1252, wich B side has highlights of the entire LP, 11 tracks all segued together. The music video "Hold on tight" was the most expensive ever made to that point, with a budget of approximately £40,000. “Twilight" / “Julie Don´t Live Here”, was released 11 October 1981,achieves only a 30 place in the UK and November 28,1981 a 38 place in the US, the worst locations for several years."Twilight" became popularly known for its use in the 1983 animated short Daicon IV Opening Animation. “Ticket to the Moon” / “Here is the news” Released 11 Decembere 1982, achieves a 24 place in the UK. “Rain is Falling” / “Another Heart Breaks”. Released 30 January 1982. “The Way Life´s Meant to be” / "Wishing" . Released March 1982 .will be the first single since “Nightrider” six years ago who do not achieve chart success both in England and America!

Three additional songs written in the album's context were recorded, but left off the release: "The Bouncer", "When Time Stood Still" and "Julie Don’t Live Here". These songs were instead issued as B-sides of later singles.

But there is a legend behind “Tme” was supposed a double album that was to feature 17 tracks (similar to Secret Messages). There are those who suggest that the hand of Don Arden could influence so that "Time" was a single album. We may never know exactly.

A1 – Prologue A2 – Twilight A3 – Yours Truly, 2095 A4 – Ticket To The Moon A5 – The Way Life’s Meant To Be B1 – When Time Stood Still B2 – Julie Don’t Live Here. B3 – Sad Affair. B4 – Another Heart Breaks. C1 – Rain Is Falling. C2 – From The End Of The World. C3 – The Lights Go Down. C4 – Here Is The News. D1 – 21st Century Man. D2 – The Bouncer. D3 – Unknow song D4 – Hold On Tight. D5 – Epilogue.

Very little information is out there on the 2LP but in 2019, two acetates of the unreleased double version from "Time" were discovered. bit.ly/ElO80r This would be the original track list for the TIME double album: Bev Bevan in an interview for “POPULAR 1” magazine, no. 106, April 1982. It clearly states that they had themes (17 songs) for TIME that could complete a double album.

There is a possibility that Time's double album contains alternate mixes? Most likely yes, to give 18-20 minutes per side. Although it would not be surprising if it did not exceed 15 to achieve a clearer and less compressed sound.

How there are no guarantees that these acetates will ever be copied, although it should not be discarded, for now, until that day arrives, here you have this reconstruction.

Paul McCartney - "Mc CARTNEY II" - (Unreleased 2 lp version - Original 1979 Test Pressing).

Hi!, once again. let´s go with more an better!. This time with a stranger album from Paul McCartney recorded in the summer of 1979 after the release of what turned out to be Wings' final album, "Back to the Egg", 

Here I bring you the original "McCARTNEY II" before Paul decided that the album was too advanced by then and reduced it to a single lp. So we-re going to know a little better the history about this lp.

Reference cover for the final lp

"McCartney II" was the second solo studio album by Paul McCartney, released on 16 May 1980. It was recorded mostly alone by McCartney at his home studio and. It ushered in a new era for the ex beatle shortly before the dissolution of his band Wings in 1981. Recorded with a little or no artistic or technical help, many of its tracks lapse into an experimental mode with much use of synthesizers and electronically-induced vocal tricks.

When it was released the reviews by the specialized press where to mostly unfavourable. "The worst from Paul" was the better that they said.But time has done justice and it has become a classic.

In June 1979 McCartney get back to his farm in North Scotland to begin with new recordings. By the end of next mounth , Paul had recorded more than 20 songs. These songs were mixed at Abbey Road Studios in London between September 25 and October 16. by Paul with assistance Eddie Klein. At the end of these mixing sessions at Abbey Road, Paul as a producer made a double album with this line-up bit.ly/3d6PmG Some of these tracks have surfaced an a few “collector´s albums”, such as the superb:“Cold Cuts”. The original 2 lp version from McCartney II, with 18 track, It is another lost McCartney project,

All songs by Paul McCartney. Recording: Home Studio Peasmarsh, ,Sussex, UK. and Spirit of Ranachan Studio, Campbeltown, Soctland. June / July 1979 Mixing at Abbey Road Studios, London England. Between September 25 and october 16.1979 Original Test Pressing made at Abbey Road Studios. October 1979. Produced by Paul McCartney. Technical assistance by Eddie Kelin. Cutting by Malcolm Davies Additional vocals: Linda McCartney.

After the Abbey Road mixing sessions, he embarked on Wings' farewell tour. On November 15 Paul released his first solo single since 1971, "Wonderful Christmastime", recorded on August 30 at Lower Gate Farm, while his other side "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reggae" was cut in 1975. But things They changed in mid-January 1980, when Paul McCartney had 219 grams of marijuana discovered in his luggage during Wings' tour of Japan. Was arrested. jailed for nine days and the tour canceled. Affected by the bad experience, he returned to his farm and resumed his work at McCartney II, while deciding what to do with Wings. The original two-disc version was reduced to one.

"McCartney II" was named in follow-up to his debut album McCartney (1970) because McCartney plays all instruments on both Paul wanted history to repeat itself and the publication of this new record on May 16, 1980 marked the end of his band Wings, like McCartney with The Beatles. The album was met with mostly negative reviews. Many critics found it bored, with its experimental synth-based compositions and handful of instrumentals. That's why Paul McCartney reduced it from two albums to one, as it was feared that it would not be understood.

Lead single "Coming Up" was released on April 11 with two B-sides "Coming Up (Live at Glasgow)", recorded during Wings' December 1979 show there, and the instrumental "Lunch Box/Odd Sox" from "Venus and Mars" era. "Waterfalls" was the next single on June 13 with the outtake "Check my machine" on side B. It was successful in the UK, reaching number nine in the singles chart. "Waterfalls" went virtually unnoticed in the US. " initial sales were strong based on the strength of the hit single "Coming Up". The last single "Temporary Secretary" backed with the experimental non-album track "Secret Friend." was released on september 15.1980.

Frankly, had this version of the album been released it is doubtful that it would have been very well-received or its concept even understood.Paul McCartney did well editing the album to one.

That's all for now, I hope you like it. Don´t forget, take care and see you soon.

Boston - "Greatest Hits" - (Unreleased 1980 lp).

Hi!.., here we go again with more and better.

This time with Boston, an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, US. which had its most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s. A super band has sold more than 75 million records worldwide.

This is the story of an unreleased album from Boston called. "Createst Hits", that should have been released in the summer of 1980. In August, and it says like this...

17 million records were sold from the debut album, Boston, released on August 25, 1976, ranks as one of the best-selling debut albums in U.S. the album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and remained on the charts for 132 weeks. From this work spawned three singles:

-"More Than a Feeling": released by Epic Records in September 1976, with "Smokin'" on the b-side. The single peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. From this song there is a three versions: 3:25 (single edit/video version) - 4:45 (album version) and 5:03 (full version).

- "Long Time”: it was the second single on Epic Records released Jannuary 7.1977.. without instrumental introduction. “Foreplay” that was the B side from next single. Meanwhile “Long Time” was edited to 3:05 for radio stations with “Let me take you home tonight” on B side. Peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100

- "Peace of Mind": released in April 1977 as the third and final single from Boston álbum debut, peaked at number 38 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 From this song there are three known versions too: 5:02 (album version) - 3:38 (single version) and 5:31 (full version).

Tom Scholz completed the second Boston album two years after the debut album's release in August 1978.. It was recorded under a not very good environment, with problems with manager Paul Ahern, Ahern and his business partner Charles McKenzie. Finally Scholz doing most of the recording work alone. Only sold about half as well as the debut album, eventually selling over 7 million records.However, making the group one of the world's best-selling artists.

The original title was “Arrival” but it had to be changed because Abba had already released an album with that name. Tom was unhappy with the album's second side in particular because Epic record pressured him to publish a new album as soon as possible, as it had been a long time since the first. Another three songs were released as singles: -

“Don´t look back”: with “The Journey” on B side. Both songs were released as single on August 2.1978. Billboard Magazine rated the song one of the best cuts from the second album. This single sold more than a million copies in the first two weeks or so following its release. Peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. From this song there are two known versions: 5:58 (Album Version) and 4:05 (Radio Edit)

The second single was: “A man I´ll never be” with “Don´t be afraid” on B side. Released on November 1978. Reached No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100.; and the next and last single from this first era was: “Feelin´satisfied” with Wused to bad news” on b side Released in early 1979. It was release for 7 years, until "Amanda".

In late 1979, Scholz began writing new material for the next Boston lp. but he was involved in legal problems with Paul Ahern for copyright of the songs, which delayed the recording of a possible new album for the group. bit.ly/Bst321A Tom Scholz suggested that in the meantime the individual members should work on whatever other projects they might be considering.Goudreau then decided to record new album with Delp and Hashian, and which was recorded with Paul Grupp as engineer and producer Tom was asked for some of the new material that he already had recorded to accommodate it in the album and thus publish a new Boston lp but he suggested to Goudreau that he better release it as his first solo album.

Meanwhile, Epic attempted to release a greatest hits album compiling all of the group's singles. The album would be called "Greatest Hits", destined for the summer of 1980, but it was canceled it by Goudreau´s the first solo album released instead on August of that same year. Here's Boston's original "Greatest Hits" LP rebuilt for you with a slightly different and expanded second version.

Frank Zappa: "Crush All Boxes" - (Unreleased 1980 album)

Welcome once again, this time with a new album forgotten called: “Crush All Boxes”. It was the name of an album that Zappa planned to release in late 1980. The original album title was "Fred Zeppelin", but when the record had been completely finished Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham suddenly passed away. The pun wasn't that funny anymore and at the last minute Frank decided to change the original record title by "Crush All Boxes"

Here´s the quick story...

Original cover

The songs were recorded between July and September 1980 al The Utility Muffin Research Kitchen (UMRK) is the name of the recording studio that Frank Zappa built and used extensively for many of his musical recordings, at his home in the Hollywood Hills But Zappa decided not to release it after he had played it on the radio FZ, KUNM, Albuquerque, NM, October 11, 1980, and it had been bootlegged. bit.ly/3iS5l The songs were released later on “Tinsel Town Rebellion”, May 17.1981 and “You Are What You Is”, on September 23, 1981 but in different mixes. Here is an extract from that radio broadcast that left this album unpublished.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Frank Zappa, and I wanna tell you you're about to hear the world premiere of our new album which is called Crush All Boxes. This is the first time on Earth where this record has ever been played on a radio station and you got it. This is cut one, side one, and it's a song called "Doreen."

[...] Now we're going to play some more stuff from my new album which is called Crush All Boxes. This three songs are heard together so you won't hear me talk for a while. In fact you won't hear nothing but these songs for a while. And the names of the songs in their order are, "Some More Like That," followed by "Easy Meat," followed by our Halloween special song, "Goblin Girl."

[...] Some of the new songs were written within the last few days. We have a song called "The Dangerous Kitchen," that I think you will enjoy. It's a tragic tale of what happens when you come home late at night to your house and you go in the kitchen and get something to eat and find out that somebody has left this total mess all over the place. It talks about the soft things that you step on on the floor that you don't know what they are, and the meat, you know, wrapped up in paper that's sitting out on the counter and the cats get to it and they have torn a hole in it and there's this stuff hanging out. And the stuff in the strainer that has a mind of its own. We have very wholesome material.

Anyway, I wanna play you side two of the new album which probably will be coming out by the end of October. It's called Crush All Boxes, and all these songs segue together and you should hear them in this one continuous blotch. And the titles are "Society Pages," "I'm A Beautiful Guy," Beauty Knows No Pain," "Charlie's Enormous Mouth," "Any Downers?," and "Conehead."

[...] This is Frank Zappa and you're listening to KUNM, and you've just heard side two of my new album which is called Crushed All Boxes, and the names of the tunes you've just listened to were "Society Pages," "I'm A Beautiful Guy," "Beauty Knows No Pain," "Charlie's Enormous Mouth," "Any Downers?," and "Conehead."

The album was revised and completed with this new line-up but a few days later was canceled because the acetate was hacked from the radio.

Side A: (19:54)

1.Doreen (Part 1) (2:47)

2. Something Like That (A.k.a: "Fine Girl") (3:30)

3. Easy Meat (9:19)

4. Goblin Girl (4:17)

 

Side B: (19:25)

1. Society Pages (2:26)

2. Beautiful Guy (1:56)

3. Beauty Knows No Pain (3:04)

4. Charlie's Enormous Mouth (3:36)

5. Any Downers? (2:08)

6. Conehead (4:17)

7.Doreen (Part 2) (1:56)

Frank Zappa was overconfident when he allowed the record's acetate to be broadcast on the radio without considering the consequences it could bring.A silly big mistake.

“Tinsel Town Rebellion” originally to be titled "Crush All Boxes". Shortly before being published Frank Zappa decided to change the title to "Tinseltown Rebellion". Cal Schenkel had to change the already done artwork by overpainting the original title with the letters of "Tinseltown Rebellion". A close look to the title on front still reveals the remains of the original writing underneath.

Ok!, that´s all for now, see you soon and enjoy it.

The Who: "The Kids Are Alright" - (Entwhistle / Stein version)

“The kids are alright” film was primarily the work of American fan Jeff Stein who in 1975, he approached Pete Townshend, and told him about his idea to compiling a collection of film clips to provide a historical reference for the band's fans. Townshend initially rejected the idea.

Stein made a 17-minute short film with clips from their US television appearances, and showed it to the band and their wives, They loved it. That's when they were really convinced that the movie was worth doing.

alternate photo for "The Kids Are Alright" lp cover.

For more than two years, he collected film, television and fan film footage in England, the United States, Sweden, Germany, France, Australia, Norway and Finland, in some cases actually rescuing footage from the trash. But the film required the shooting of new material. This began on 20 July 1977 at Shepperton Studios in Middlesex, England, with a lighthearted rehearsal of old songs, including the Beach Boys song "Barbara Ann" at Stein's request. bit.ly/W79Es A special one-off show at the Kilburn State Theatre in December 1977, staged for the film, only one song “My Wife” was included on soundtrack. A second performed to a much better level, in front of an invited audience took place at Shepperton Studios on 25 May 1978. "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again".

The sound editing was supervised by bassist John Entwistle. In the summer a early version from soundtrack was compiled according to the film, although it underwent several changes until its release. During the process of sound editing, on 7 September 1978, Keith Moon died. All of the band members except Townshend had seen a rough cut of the film just a week before, and, after Moon's death, they were determined not to change anything, though the lp if it was re-worked.

The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on 14 May 1979. The Who promoted the release of the film with some live performances with their new drummer, former Small Faces and Faces drummer Kenney Jones. A soundtrack album was released in June 8 1979, including some songs and performances from the film. It was originally released as a double album on Polydor Records in the UK and MCA Records in the US. Reached #26 in the UK, and fared better in the US, where it peaked at #8 on the Billboard album charts and went Platinum.

This is an early version made by John Entwistle and Jeff Stein.

The Beatles: "Yellow Submarine - The Soundtrack".(Unreleased 1978 Project).

After George Martin finished mixing and producing "Love Songs" in late summer 1977, he received a new work from EMI Records on a proposal from Capitol Records, just before he got back into the archive to start working on "The Beatles Collection" box and compile a new album later known as "Rarities".A double Lp called “Yellow Submarine - The Soundtrack”. Because in the summer of 1978 an improved copy of the film "Yellow Submarine" was going to be released, first at the San Francisco Film Festival followed by the Cambridge Film Festival and finally at the Locarno International Film Festival in Germany, before ending up in theaters.

This is the quick story of that unreleased 1978 project.

Artwork proposed for Yellow Submarine - The Soundtrack double lp.

With the June 1976 release of the double lp "Rock N'Roll Music", the Beatles' new albums were reactivated. Since 1973, with The Red album 1962-66 & The Blue album 1967/70, It seemed that the last word had been said and there was presumably no more material to offer, but there was still a lot in the archives. Thus in April 1977, Lingasong Records released the first live recording, of the Beatles in Hamburg in 1962 and a few days later it was EMI/Capitol who did the same with "At Hollywood Bowl" and shortly thereafter in October "Love Songs".

Now it was the turn of "Yellow Submarine – The Soundtrack". project that was intended to be released in July of 1978,A double Lp bit.ly/69Ys78 with almost all the beatles songs included in the film, remixed in a one record, the other would be only for George Martin. This meant recovering much of the unreleased tracks that had been left out from the sessions of October 22 and 23, 1968, but were heard in the film.

Finally, the film premier was made, as planned. But from this project was never heard again, although George Martin did his job, it ended up forgotten in the archives.

Decades later, in 1999 for similar reasons, such as the digital restoration of the film for DVD editing, part of this abandoned project was recovered, but eliminating the part of George Martin.

Here's the reconstruction of the lost project "Yellow Submarine - The Soundtrack."

Enjoy it.See you soon with more and better.

The Warriors - (The Lost Soundtrack).

Hi there, we go with more and better. This time, the Warriors and their lost soundtrack. The version presented here is a painstaking reconstruction made following the film script, for this I have had to see the movie a couple of hundred times, so it will take me a while to see it again, because I know until the dialogues.., anyway!.., this lost sountrack has exclusive material,some unheard before in this way, with unreleased, alternate mixes or uncut versions before the revision of the director's cut was carried out and part of the music record began to be rejected. such as the opening credits music before the main theme tune. but first let's do a little history...

Cover inspired on the 1979 alternate original film poster.

Filming for The Warriors began on June 26th 1978 in New York City The director Walter Hill asked Barry de Vorzon to create a soundtrack that would help move the film along. Synthesisers were relatively new at the time but De Vorzon used them over a rock ’n’ roll sound to create the iconic score for the movie – believed to be the first rock ’n’ roll soundtrack with a synthesiser.

The original motion picture soundtrack was ready in early February of the next year, and it was produced by Joe Walsh (Eagles), Barry De Vorzon, Joe Ferla & Kenny Vance, and released on March 16, 1979 by A&M Records, just a week after the movie's release in U.S. theaters. The Warriors original soundtrack featured 10 tracks which include some of the key pieces of music from the film score as well as tracks that are heard in the movie (including some songs which are only very briefly heard). The play time of these ten tracks is 37 minutes.aprox. but a lot of material was wasted.

I think it is a great movie, quite entertaining and an icon of the seventies. This is the line-up with some information about each song.of how it would have been if it had been published in two LP´s and in chronological order.

1.The Lineup - Rumble.(**) (Link Wray). In the deleted scene set in daytime Coney Island, The Warriors march off down the boardwalk to the subway. The music was used in Pulp Fiction.

2.Wonder Wheel - The Warriors (main title).(**) (Barry De Vorzon). (Alternate long version). With a different ending This was one of the most often requested tracks from the movie. This is the track that is heard at the very start of the movie as the Wonder Wheel can be seen spinning in the background, and the movie’s opening credits and logo are shown on screen up to the point that Cleon addresses the rest of the gang. This then progresses on to an extended version of the familiar theme tune from the original soundtrack that plays as The Warriors are seen on the subway making their way to The Bronx.

3.Night Run (**) - Graveyard (**) - Riffs Boss. (*) (Barry De Vorzon). (Unreleased version). Not to be confued with the song Night Run that originally featured in some early versions of the movie in the place of Nowhere to Run. This track sounds like chase music with elements of a police siren.It started right after Cyrus' murder.The next piece: “graveyard”,also did not get included in the movie. this was going to be used when The Warriors made it to the graveyard after escaping the conclave. It does sound mildly upbeat which is perhaps why it was never used. The third part of the track did make it into the movie and is the score that can be heard when Masai descends the elevator in to the Riffs’ hangout.at the end also can hear to Masai saying “Who are The Warriors? I want all those Warriors. Send the Word!”.

4.Echoes In My Mind.(*) (C.Wilson,L.Wilson,C.Cave,Dr.Richard Wilson and W.Wilson). (Performed by Mandrill). (Alternate edit version). With the female DJ voice included. This track can be briefly heard in the background of the radio studio when the DJ is telling her listeners that hunt down The Warriors. She then plays Nowhere to Run.Presented here with the female DJ voice of the female DJ.

5.Nowhere To Run.(*) (Holland,Dozier and Holland). (Performed by Arnold McCuller). (Alternate version). With the female DJ voice included. Due to copyright, the original version by Marta and the Vandellas had to be renounced and this new one was recorded by Arnold McCuller. Presented here in an edited manner with the female DJ included.

6.Turnbull AC's (**) - #1 Riffs Report.(**) - News Flash (**). (Barry De Vorzon). (Alternate version). The first part of this piece that plays as The Warriors watch the Turnbull AC’s pass them by in the bus under the subway station.No included in the soundtrack, only on the movie. Original movie mix, like the one below.

7.In Havana. (Steve Nathanson & Artie Ripp). (Performed by Frederick LaPlano). As you can heard on the original soundtrack. This song is heard very quietly in the background on the radio when The Rogues visit the candy store. The track starts with the sound of The Rogue’s car pulling up outside the candy store.

8.The Orphans (**) - Molotov Cocktail (**) - March To Station (**) - #2 Riffs Report (*) (Barry De Vorzon). (Unreleased version). No included in the soundtrack or movie (only part 4). The first part features an alternate version of the upbeat, groovy, Graveyard track which corresponds to The Orphans. Molotov Cocktail so presumably is the score that was to be used during the molotov cocktail scene with The Orphans.The next is an extended version of Graveyard.

9.Last Of An Ancient Breed. (Desmond Child). (*) (Alternate version). With the female DJ voice included. This song is very briefly heard in the radio studio right before the DJ tells her listeners that The Warriors have gotten past “one of the minor league teams” (The Orphans).

10.Baseball Furies Chase - The Fight.(*) (Barry De Vorzon) (Original - Uncut).This is the complete unedited score for the entire scene with The Baseball Furies featuring the chase and the fight. this track can be heard during the chase scene when The Baseball Furies pursue bit.ly/79TwS The Warriors through the streets of New York into the park. The track is essentially a reworked version of the movie’s theme as Barry de Vorzon had not written any music for this fight. However, producers felt that music was needed to make the fight seem less violent.

11.Night Run #1.(**) (Phillip Marshall). (Performed by Mersh Brothers). .(Alternate version #1).With the female DJ voice included too. This song can be heard in the radio studio in the movie. Listed in the movie credits but does not appear on the soundtrack, because it was replacement by “In the City”, shortly afeter the film was finished.

12. #3 Riffs Report (**) - Train Walking.(**) (Barry De Vorzon). (Unreleased version). Not included in the movie or soundtrack.Presumably to be used in the scene with Swan and Mercy walking in the subway.

13.You're Moving Too Slow. (E.Mercury and W. Smith) .(Performed by Johnny Vastano). As you can heard on the original soundtrack. This song is also playing on the jukebox in the Lizzies’ apartment and can be heard after The Warriors arrive and are seen chilling out.

14.Into The Tunnel.(**) (Barry De Vorzon). .(Unreleased version). Not used in the movie or soundtrack and might relate to the scene where Swan and Mercy evade the cops by running in to the subway tunnel.

15.Love Is A Fire. (Vinnie Poncia & Johnny Vastano). (Performed by Genya Raven). As you can heard on the original soundtrack. Second song playing on the jukebox in the Lizzies’ apartment.

16.Skater (edited) (*) - Men's Room (*) - The Fight (edited).(**) (Barry De Vorzon). (Alternate edit version). No on soundtrack only in the movie when Swan is walking through the subway station pursued by the leader of The Punks on his rollerskates and during the fight scene with The Warriors and The Punks in the men’s room.

17 Riffs Learns Truth (alternate) (*) - Platform (*) - Warriors and Rogues (*) - Luther´s Bottles (*)- On The Beach (*) (Barry De Vorzon). (Unreleased). No on soundtrack. Part one of this track features in the scene when the informant comes forward with information on who really shot Cyrus. The second part when The Warriors arrive back into Coney Island on the subway train the following morning. The next when The Warriors are evading The Rogues on Coney Island and are gathering their weapons ready to fight them on the beach. The last is a dialogue edit from final scene.

18.In The City. (Joe Walsh and Barry De Vorzon). (Performed by Joe Walsh). (Alternate version). With the female DJ voice intro Wasn´t to be included in the movie but did it instead of Night Run”, performed by Mersh Bros. Looking for a hit to distribute it to radio stations and thus better sell the soundtrack.

bonus tracks:

19.Betrayal.(*) (E.Froese, C.Franke and P.Baumann). (Performed by Tangerine Dream). (Movie Trailer Music).

20.Just A Fugitive.(**) (Alan Lee Brackett). (Performed by Alan Lee Brackett). (Unreleased random VHS track).

21.Night Run. #2.(**) (Phillip Marshall). (Performed by Mersh Brothers). (Alternate version #2).With the female DJ voice intro.

Note: marked with (*) excluded from the original soundtrack. (**) final movie´s version too.

Ok folks!.., enjoy it and don't forget to watch the movie. It's a good movie, very good.

The Police: "Police Brutality".

Outlandos d'Amour was the debut studio album by the English new wave band The Police, released on 2 November 1978 by A&M Records. It peaked at No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart and at No. 23 in the United States.

The album was recorded at Surrey Sound in an intermittent fashion over six months, the recording sessions, with a budget of £1,500 borrowed from Stewart Copeland's brother Miles, began at January 1978 and ends in June; with the band jumping in whenever the studio had free time or another band's sessions were cancelled, something very similar to how Queen had recorded their first álbum, back in 1972.

Alternate cover used on 1979/80 tour poster.

When these sessions ended, an early version from the album had made, with 13 theme. Miles named it "Police Brutality". and so he showed it to different labels. Line-up:

Side A: (18:43)

1.Truth hits everybody.(2:45).

2.Can´t stand losing you.(2:39).

3.So lonely.(4:05).

4.No time this time.(3:18) (*)

5.Fall out.(1:33).

6.Hole in my life,(4:20)

 

Side B. (18:56)

1.Born in the 50´s.(3:13).

2.Peanuts.(3:16).

3.Be my girl-Sally.(1:30). (no spoken word version)

4.Roxanne.(3:121) (*)

5.Landlord.(2:44)

6.Next to you.(2:04)

7.Dead end job.(2:54).

All songs by Sting except: Peanuts (Sting & Copeland) & Be My Girl-Sally (Sting & Summers).All tracks are unreleased alternate versions except (*)

Eventually A&M became interested in the album but advised some changes such as title, so Miles did it to "Outlaws of love", envisioning a more romantic image for the band. after hearing Roxanne.Besides that needed to be restructured to make it not only more commercial but more powerful. So the new version was shortened to just 10 songs; relegating: "Dead end job" that closed the original album and "No time this time", to be sides B of the future singles. "No Time This Time" The latter was included on “Reggatta de Blanc” bit.ly/2y05w However,the two songs from their second single "Roxanne", The Police were initially reluctant about it, but Miles Copeland was immediately enthusiastic and not only did he want it to appear as a single but also on the álbum; and "Peanuts" a composition written by Stewart Copeland and Sting about Rod Stewart. The lyrics were meant as an expression of disappointment on Sting's part towards his former idol; Both will remain in this new version.

Others on the contrary as “Fall out” from their 1st non-album single was replaced by the outtake “Masoko Tanga”. "Be My Girl—Sally" is a half-finished song by Sting, later completed with an Andy Summers poem. Here you can hear the original mix.Almost all the songs were retouched,and expanded by folding for example to get the minutes necessary per each side. Meanwhile on August 14 the second single from the album came out: "Can´t stand losing you" with "Dead End Job" on side B. But this single was banned by the BBC, owing to the cover depicting Stewart Copeland with a noose around his neck, because . the song, “Can´t stand losing you” is about a young lover being driven to suicide following a breakup.

When the new version of 10 songs was finished, the title had been changed to “Outlandos d´Amour”. a loose French translation of "Outlaws of Love", with the first word being a combination of the words "outlaws" and "commandos", and "d'Amour" meaning "of love”.

The album initially performed poorly due to low exposure and an unfavourable reaction from the BBC to its first two singles, "Can't Stand Losing You" and "Roxanne" (about suicide and prostitution, respectively). Also the reviews of the album were largely unfavorable. Subsequent retrospective reviews have been more favorable, as one of the strongest debut albums by any band or artist. It ranked No. 38 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "100 Best Debut Albums of All Time". In 2012, the magazine ranked it No. 428 on their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Ok folks, that´s all.., for now. Enjoy it.
