    Default Untitled Apples song circa 1997? (\"Dreams are taking their toll...\")

    There's this song labelled "?" on the elephant6.com site. It's been there with the other downloadable Apples stuff for as long as I can remember.

    As much of the Apples stuff I've heard, though, (which is quite a bit) I have never heard a studio version (or another live version, now that I think of it) of this particular song.

    Here's the direct link: http://www.elephant6.net/mp3/apples/apples_CHI_03.mp3

    Does anyone know what song this is? A cover song, perhaps?

    I ask because, well, it's a damn fine song.

    we recorded the song "dreams" for tone soul evolution-- it was one of the druggiest, prettiest, most melancholy songs for the album, and was one of our favorite apples songs at the time-- we completely finished it but it needed a guitar solo and i could never get the right guitar sound, and it just did not feel perfectly drone-y enough, so we dropped it from the album, planning to finish it for the next record-- obviously we never did--

    anyway mark linnet transferred the song from two-inch tape to protools for me a couple of years ago when we were mixing the marbles "expo" record, and i added some synths and mixed the song--

    except for now i can't remember the guitar solo so the song has still been unfinished-- i am going to check out this link (thanks grimeyno1!!!) so i can remember the guitar solo and finally finish "dreams"

    because we will be including it on "electronic projects for musicians" which is a seven inch/b-side/bonus tracks-type comp similar to "science faire" that we are putting out later this year-- which will include all of our non-LP material since fun trick noisemaker came out-- including all of the tracks that were listed here on the townhall for the unofficial comp that was put together some time ago

    okay hope that is not too much information--

    Holy mother of awesome. My eyes literally widened when I read this.

    I'm excited to the nth degree.

    Haha, I just went to You Ain't No Picasso to alert Matt and he's already mentioned the news.

    This is honestly so great. I've been wanting a b-sides comp for a long time.

    -We will be printing an Apples songbook with lyrics and chords for all of our songs to coincide with the release of the new record, which we will sell on tour and online and such; this will be a BIG task as we have over 100 songs released i think, so if any of you have lyrics in text format please email them to our manager Dan Efram (dan@tractor-beam.com) and you will be rewarded in the after-life (and credited in the songbook).
