1 You Tangle Within Me (original recording)
This one is for you, Randy! A never-before-heard outtake from Ashes in the Brittle Air. This is the original final mix with the full lyrics (which I didn't write) as it was recorded with vocalist Sue Kenny-Smith in a studio in Brixton, London, summer of 1988. After I mixed Ashes the first time, I went all psycho and decided to scrap half the songs. This version of "You Tangle Within Me" got pulled, and I revamped the song into the version that appears on the album (I only kept the "I ran to you" lines). In this version, you can hear Sue, as beautiful as ever. In the 80s this mix was transferred from the original 1/4" 2-track to cassette, then transferred to DAT at some point, and just now transferred to digital with a bit of quick EQ. Someday I promise I will take the original 2-track mixes of Ashes (with the other cut songs) and give it all a proper digital clean-up. (And, on reflection, what was wrong with this version? It's pretty damn cool. Sheesh, artists!)
