From TG&Y

September 17, 2007 04:25PM | From TG&Y
So, yeah, made a new album and this song had no place on it, but I listened to it the other day and thought "that version we recorded at Electrical is kinda nice," and besides, I never end up recording songs that're old; either I'm gonna give it away or it's just going to sit in the box doin' nothing" - maybe it'd end up as a bonus track or something, but even then, I like bonus tracks to be from the same group of songs or from some wholly different world (see: the Get Lonley Japanese edition bonus tracks). So I'm handing it over to y'all but please read the disclaimer which is binding!

DEAR JOHN D., I want a copy of the version of "From TG&Y" (which you have also called "For TG&Y" at various points, omg which one is correct) that you and Peter recorded at Electrical with John Congleton last fall. I understand that by accepting this file, I agree not to be El Gran Senor Intenet Douchebag, saying on various forums or lj comments threads how this song ought to have been on the next album instead of whatever other song I have blindfoldedly singled out, it being quite clear that this song's theme is rather more in line with the Sunset Tree. I understand that you would not be the guy to just shove a Sunset Tree style song onto another album, since that would be so lame. I agree that the terms of this agreement are reasonable and awesome, and that they apply to me whether I grabbed the song directly from these forums or from some other source, and hereby state that I agree to them whether I have read them or not. Yours most sincerely [signature of recipient]

thankyouthankyouthankyou. you are too kind to us.
September 17, 2007 04:55PM | Re: From TG&Y
Maybe you should release it on The Sunset Tree: 10 Year Anniversary Special Edition.
September 17, 2007 04:56PM | Re: From TG&Y
Thanks for letting us have this one!

I fully agree with your terms.
Moreover (and this might spark some discussion here), I welcome your decision not to include From TG&Y on the forthcoming record (or The Sunset Tree, for that matter).

Cheers, Netzhaut

So, I've now listened to it about 6 times, and I love it. And John's voice is so different than the bootlegs, which I love. I mean, it's not like either is bad, but they're two different sounds, so I guess it gives a different perspective.

or something.

My viewing of A Bucket of Blood was interrupted by a text message from Caliclimber regarding this news and i usually don't interrupt movie-watching but this is clearly the exception

This is just so awesome and wonderful, Thanks so much John!
September 17, 2007 05:55PM | Re: From TG&Y
A huge "Woo-yay!" and an even bigger "Thank you".

Who feels the love? I feel the love.

And, if there is a box that a bunch of songs are sitting in, setting up a thread like this every once in a while would be awesome.
