I don’t know if its ok to post this, but f**k it… I got my hands on the unreleased outtake Alison (Elvis Costello Cover) from the Nimrod Sessions. It is from a bootleg 7inch record, which unfortunately skips a bit. But it is definitely GD, as you can tell. Crazy to hear after 25 years.

If it is ok w GDC I will rip the full song.

I also will be posting an unreleased alternate unmastered remix of Redundant from 1998. No.. its not the Richard Dodd wide mix. I’m calling it the “Warning mix” since it is less distorted and more stripped down like Warning - the album. There is no second guitar, and the mix has more presence on the acoustic guitar, tambourine, and overdubs. It sounds less chunky and something that’d fit in more so on Warning rather than Nimrod. I imagine it was an early mix before it was finished - but why it is labeled as 1998 makes me curious as to why it was mixed like this after the album release….

More to come.

Oh wow, sounds great.  I love this song, love the version Billie did with Elvis and this GD full band version is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing this.  😘😘

Is this actually a bootleg? It's obviously not from Warner, but pressing only 20 copies makes me think someone in/around the band was making these as a gift (ala The Boo 7"). Seems like bootleggers would either press more copies and/or release it on CD if they were trying to make money. Since these songs weren't circulating AFAIK, there can't be THAT many people who had access to them. The fact that it was sold at Tower Records in SF also makes me think it was someone around the band. I have no proof, but the more I think about it the stranger the random bootleg angle seems.

 

Edit: Who is Chaz Wentworth??

Thanks for this. Maybe they were doing a radio/video mix like walking contradiction or prosthetic head

Here is Redundant 2-9-1998 Future Disc Systems Remix

Future Disc Systems is the team who mastered Nimrod. I imagine they were involved in the single release in 1998 perhaps as an early mix, or rejected mix. Sounds like something that'd be on Warning rather than Nimrod to me. Enjoy.

Thank you so much for this! Can't wait to listen to it. Redundant is easily #2 for my fave song off of Nimrod.

This rules - thank you! Based on the Feb 98 date this seems like it was done to emphasize the acoustic + singer-songwriter elements of Redundant after Good Riddance's crazy success. Good Riddance was released as a single in early December 1997 and Redundant was released in late April 1998 so the timing fits. They probably wanted to try for a more unique sound. I assume this was rejected in favor of the Richard Dodd wide mix.

Possibly a theory could be drawn that thanks to Good Riddance, the Warning album was born and they wanted to take a test that maybe they would be successful on the album, which was not successful. So maybe the origin of Warning is due to these two songs: Good Riddance and Redundant (Future Disc Systems Remix).
