Rock Art tracklist

Post by msza2 » 28 Jul 2017, 4:01pm

Here's the Rock Art tracklist for the 2012 reissues:

Rock Art & The X-Ray Style
1. "Tony Adams"
2. "Sandpaper Blues"
3. "X-Ray Style"
4. "Techno D-Day"
5. "The Road to Rock 'n' Roll"
6. "Nitcomb"
7. "Diggin' the New"
8. "Forbidden City"
9. "Yalla Yalla"
10. "Willesden to Cricklewood"


Back in '99 I pirated it through Napster (I know, :naughty:), and had Nitcomb and Diggin the New in reverse order. When I got the Hellcat reissues, I figured I must have just burned it wrong back in the day. But the reissue sequence feels weird to me, so I looked into it and found that Epitaph lists the sequences as I had it in '99:

Has anyone else noticed this?

Was it intentional? I much prefer the original sequence.

I believe this is what the artwork said on the original release even though those 2 songs were switched on the actual CD itself. I would think it's more likely the albums were pressed with the wrong order then the artwork was wrong so maybe the reissues corrected the error. But who knows? I'm also used to Diggin' coming before Nitcomb.

Pulling out the CD is too much of a hassle, so I only ever listen to an mp3 version that doesn't have track numbering. It hangs together pretty well alphabetically. 🤓
