Comment**Mastered** by thir13en Queens of the Stone Age "Songs for the Deaf" demos 11/xx/01 unknown studio in California First, I'm calling this a master, not a remaster because... Second, these are far from demos. I've seen this thousands of times in sessions where ideas get tossed around, instrumentation is recorded, mixes are done...and the next day it didn't sound like what you thought it did. You mixed it at midnight, or maybe even around 2 or 3 AM. Then you come back to the studio at 1 or 2 the next afternoon and you can't believe you would have ever thought it sounded good. So it gets redone a different way. The same song may see this kind of treatment 3 or 4 times during sessions. So these are excellent mixes of this material, many fleshed out with bold arrangements and orchestration. All have something different than what would appear on the album release. And the quality is very close to what I would expect from sessions...for mastering. So I mastered them. Since it was essentially a session mix, I gave it the full treatment: slight mastering compression, slight spatial enhancement, tightening of the bottom, brightening of the top, and lastly the digital saturation. And this stuff just ate it up, the more I hammered it, the better it sounded. And they rock! Man this one was fun, awesome to hear these versions. You won't hear this stuff sound any better. Enjoy! 01 You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar but I Feel Like a Millionaire (rough version) 02 No One Knows (w/ flute & orchestra-solo, diff. backing-vox, no guitar solo, piano-ending) 03 Do it Again (alternate lyrics, different drums) 04 Go with the Flow (rough version, shaker added) 05 God is on the radio (no reverb on guitar & drum) 06 First it giveth (rough & slow version) 07 Another Love Song (album version, not mixed) 08 Hanging Tree (album version, not mixed) 09 Song for the Deaf (no lead-vocals) 10 Mosquito Song (diff. vocals & guitars, guitars not by Alain Johannes) ORIGNAL SOURCE Source: STU > SBD > DAT > CDR > SHN Notes: produced by Eric Valentine in October/November 2001
