Not just the gated snare on Should I stay..., but fuzz effect on the bass. Also the rubbery effect on the bass on Red Angel Dragnet.TeddyB Not Logged In wrote: ↑17 Nov 2017, 9:27pmI don’t know the answer to that... And I ain’t asking.
I personally don’t hear a thing on CR that’s not on this tape other than the vocals on those two songs. There are elements that are discarded or dismissed (most obviously the saxophone on SISOSIG). That’s the story Mick always tells, that Glyn would ask him if he could pull something out, and he would always petulantly say go ahead. There is also some sort of gate the drums (mainly the snare) are put through to beef up (rock up?) the sound. We’re told the band worked on the record in the Far East, and there is footage of them in the studio, but that could have been efforts at mixing and editing.
So Teddy - where does the US b-side mix of Cool Confusion stand? I very much like that version and think the stripped down Tom Waits-ian version is kinda dumb. Was the US b-side to SISOSIG the orginal mix, or was that Glyn? Topper's brushes and Paul's walking bass line really help advance that track (on the single mix).
