The Case of the Missing Love American Style Most of the archive's mislabelling issues have to do with missing information, e.g., no tracks listed, no date listed, wrong contents listed, illegible contents listed, or just: absolutely nothing at all written on anything anywhere (those are the fun ones.) In this case, though, it's a little different. I've been aware of this tape, the mix for the 1991 "Love American Style" 7", for years and always considered it fortunate to have it in case it were ever needed. Until just now, listening to the hi-res transfer, I hadn't realized that: the A-side song "Love American Style" isn't on it! What seems to have happened is that song was cut from this reel and spliced into the sequenced reel for Milk Milk Lemonade side B. I can't think of any other reason for this to be missing, or anywhere else it might have been spliced to. But I'd always assumed the one on the album was a new mix because it sounded so different on the LP vs. the 7". Listening closely though, I think the difference may well have been in the mastering. (Sometimes it can be hard to tell. Sound is elusive, and it can drive a person nuts to try to assess with ears alone subtle differences from A to B, especially if B is only something remembered, not extant.) Anyway, I'm glad some version of this exists. It's among my favorite recordings we ever did. This is another one, though, where the remix done in '97 for the Big Back Bugs comp. really rocks, and far, far outclasses the original (if such this be.) Those tapes have just disappeared, which is a real bummer. We can't do any remixing for this project, but if we ever do manage a MML remix, well, that'll be the time. #music #tapes #songs #minds
