Does an official track listing for the original conept exist? Or is Side 4 of the original Anthology lp set all we have to go on?

And, Mark: can we add the original version of this to the (thankfully shortening) list of J&D material that should just damn-well-be-released so we can finally hear it?

(Plus, I think the proper version of FoS is another reason to see J&D's creative value reevaluated upwards.)

The original thing has been bootlegged.

Side 4 of Anthology was just a sample.

Never seen that boot, Mark,  how about a track breakdown of Jan's "Filet Of Soul"?

I would love to see an official release from the original master tapes . . . with good liner notes for history and context. I know Dean and my friend David Beard feel the same way.

Some of the vocals sound quite good, and some sound pretty bad . . . but it's the overall statement that matters.

It's basically Jan & Dean as a night club act . . . in the Twighlight Zone.

Prole jokes, sound effects (like machine guns, explosions, laughter, car-crashing from "Dead Man's Curve," sneezing, and fart noisies, to name a few), plus music clips from "My Country 'Tis of Thee," "The Star Spangled Banner," and Rusty & Doug's original "Louisiana Man."

And bear in mind that the bootleg probably doesn't include all there is to choose from.

Liberty's released version from '66 featured some of the the music used for the original concept. But Liberty's version included a full take of "Let's Hang On," while the original concept just featured a goof on the Intro to the song.

The original concept featured a "live" version of "Norwegian Wood," while Liberty's version included an alternate studio take.

Above all, we need to keep in mind that the live backing band are all Wrecking Crew people . . . which is another reason why we need to hear this stuff from the original master tapes.

I like the version of  "Norwegian Wood" as officially released on "Filet..."  -- it's a very dense and rich production.

I also like the "brassy" version of Honolulu Lulu on "Filet..." -- it seems to add a bit of power to the song.

I like these versions of Honolulu Lulu and Norwegian Wood, too.  The two original acetates on the bootleg compilation aren't really terrible in terms of sound quality, but compared to what we're used to, they're not great either.  Does EMI have the master tapes of the two unreleased versions?
