Original versions 'Wash' and Hard To Imagine'

I was on a hunt the past week through all my external HDs to find some rare PJ audio when I discovered a trove of other stuff I haven't listened to in ages. The Lost Dogs versions of Wash and HTI have been what I typically hear (Spotify) and I am getting back in touch with the goose bumps the OG versions gave me for years. Wow! HTI could only be found on the Chicago Cab soundtrack and Wash was on the Japan single of Alive if I recall? Going back through the Ten/Vs./Vitalogy singles and their b-sides has been fucking awesome.

    Nice! Dirty Frank is another one that changed slightly on Lost Dogs.
  • The OG HTI is magical.

    The Hard to Imagine on the Chicago Cab soundtrack I believe was the 3rd version. But it was the first one we heard. It was originally done for VS. Which I think is the Lost Dogs version. Then for Vitalogy and then No Code which is on the soundtrack along with Who You Are

    That’s so interesting, I never knew that. I must prefer Jack on drums, but 3rd time was the charm for that one.

    Dang! Three versions? So there’s a version with Jack Irons on drums?

    Heck yeah! I also loved the original version of “Alone” and was not sure why it was changed. Probably the part “I can’t help my self, don’t f*ck with me” was not appropriate but I was not sure what was caused this. Any ideas?

    Never knew there were so many versions. Interesting.

    Alone, Wash, Brother, and Dirty Frank original versions are all better than the Lost Dogs version. Footsteps too, though the harmonica has grown on me. 

    There was just such magic in those early days that it’s impossible to impove upon. Not that there hasn’t been magic since. I’m on year 32 of being a fan for a reason!

    Yah, I've got a B-Sides/Rarities folder that I made that has all the original versions, well at least the ones we were all introduced too.  Love those versions.

    It would also be awesome if chicago cab got release on vinyl :)

    Most of the b-sides from ten and vs are freakin great! I am also sure there are more from the Vitalogy era we haven't heard yet.

    Just noting that the "original" version of "Footsteps"-- the one Eddie dubbed onto the tape he got from Jack Irons with the Gossard demos-- had harmonica on it.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    I thought the original version of Hard To Imagine was found on the Hallucinogenic Recipe bootleg box set.  I know I had heard that version well before Chicago Cab came out.

    Yeah, the Vs. demos version of HTI was also available on a bootleg called "Five Against One" so it was definitely out there before Chicago Cab.

    One of my personal favourites.


    ..

    A Chicago Cab. I haven't seen that film in a long, long time. Wonder if they will ever get to release that soundtrack on vinyl.



    RSD someday maybe?

    Wash was on the EU yellow digipack version of Ten along with Dirty Frank and Alive ( live )
