Just a quick update regarding an email I got from beck.com regarding my order for OFITG expanded. The email includes an unreleased song (recorded at Dub Narcotic) called “The Way it Seems” as a thanks for ordering AND GET THIS that more details are coming on the “unreleased follow up to OFITG.” The attached mp3 is fully tagged including album specified as “K records 2.” Full email is included below, stay tuned for more details as they come in.
Thank you for picking up the expanded edition of One Foot In the Grave. This reissue has been several years in the making—-tracking down tapes, photographs and mixing the lost songs on the 8 equipment they were originally recorded on. As an added bonus we are sending you an extra song not available anywhere else from the the unreleased follow up to One Foot In the Grave recorded in the summer of 1994 at Dub Narcotic Studios, of which there will be more about later. We’re also working on some surprises for the website which we hope we’ll be able to bring to you soon.
EDIT: i wanted to add a little bit about what we know about this, the long-lost Second K Record. Beck recorded One Foot up in Olympia for K in summer 1993, as well as a bit for it in January 1994. He released the album in June 1994. Then in July 1994, he was back up there for a couple of weeks on a short break from Mellow Gold touring, and recorded the follow-up. I was under impression these sessions were aborted, and not finished, but now it seems there is a full album’s worth ready to go. Old Beck.com Disko had listed 3 songs from the “2nd K Release”: “Buried Alive,” “Cold Brains,” and “Somewhere Far Along.” There were a ton of unreleased songs played over the remainder of 1994 and in to 1995, so I’d think any of those songs may show up here. (And some, like “Cold Brains,” could very likely have shown up on Mutations.) Like Mint said, stay tuned. – almostaghost
PS. I changed the title of this post, because really it has little to do with One Foot In The Grave deluxe! It is its own new thing.
