This track has gone through many versions. The one which appears on The Fairfield Blues (http://ift.tt/2tds4pl) is version 8, mixed in 2014. This is version 6, mixed in 2011. This version is pretty similar to the released version, enough where it may not warrant inclusion on a longer release. However, I mastered it today (7/4/2017) and am releasing it here for free. The photo here is an alternate idea for that album cover.
This album was an experiment in what I was calling “long-form pop” at the time. I can be extremely critical of these works now but I still can acknowledge that I created them.
This is the original unedited June 21 2008 version of the song that eventually ended up on the album “No Underwear” (located here – http://ift.tt/2ssiUWt). Features a few differences and more meandering vocals (the original take from 2006 was just improvised lyrics to which I later added a bridges and piano interludes to).
The 4/12/08 mix of the song “Taste” which eventually wound up on the album “No Underwear.” Recorded and performed by Jim Lemanowicz with the exception of a drum track recorded in 2007 by Jim Lemanowicz and Paul Cama. Mastered on 5/29/17
