This is the outtakes and demos album that was included in the Ride Box set. It has some really early tracks such as the Chelsea Girl 1988 demo. I’m Fine Thanks which was an early live favourite.
It features a few weird and wonderful things. Loz Colbert takes up vocal duties on Everybody Knows, he even wrote that track. Loz also wrote Blue which appears here. The dub version of Dreams Burn Down is surprisingly good. There is a New Order pastiche which is BarneyS, it is a bit naff at the start and you could think that you were listening to Black Lace. There is even a Velvet Underground cover, New Age.
There are a few songs that were just not good enough or too long to make the albums. King Bullshit started off life as a 8 minute track. Xmas Song should just be avoided, it is one of those “what on earth were they thinking”, moments. It also has nothing to do with Christmas either.
The whole album is worth it just for In a Different Place (Differently)
