A call on the fans!

Here we don’t rest for a moment and there is more material that we as fans are looking for!!!! They are my personal and more people requestings! We know these songs exist but we aren’t able to find them so…. Can you help us, please?

We have now thanks to Jessica (Thanks a lot girl)

So the songs we are looking for are:

  • Cold Hands (Warm Heart) Live Acoustic Version from Cold Hands (Warm Heart) EP

Also I have a question is there a Brendan Benson solo cover  (ok I know Raconteurs have) of Floating?

Thank you very much in advance!


Ok, this is a petition about B-sides and bonus tracks from the album My Old Familiar Friend. I’ve been told, and I also suffered it, that depending on where you live you can or cannot purchase some of these tracks. For example, UK bonus tracks are not available if you try to buy them at Itunes and you live outside this country. So this is a call for all of you, we are going to try to get them all and share them, I don’t think I am going to post them here, not because I want to keep them for myself but because of  legal problems. Although in my country as long as you don’t get money from the music you upload it’s not illegal, I really don’t want to be requested by the US government…. ok it will be a good chance to visit the country but that’s not my idea of a perfect holiday trip…. So I was thinking on writing here information as I am receiving them and by request send them to the people.

I´ll be updating this post as I get information about them. So please leave a comment or send me an email (you can find my email addy in the contact section here) about the ones you weren’t able to find in your country or at itunes or other online shops. Thanks so much.

For the moment we have:

  • “I’ll Never Tell” (Itunes bonus)
  • “New Words of Wisdom” (UK Bonus)

I want to thank Alex for this beautiful present (Play down and O My Love), not only for me but for all the fans. Thank you so much, I have to admit the songs sound great. The demo tracks don’t do justice to them at all. They are awesome! Thanks and million times thanks!

Happy most of the time is a contribution from a little bird! Thanks bird!

If you are looking for some songs please let me know and the request will be published here.

    Thanks to the little bird as well….
    Anyway, guys and gals, don’t you think that Playdown cover is beautiful? I am not a big Bee Gees fan, I only like their 60s stuff, but I have to admit that thanks to BB I am in love with this song!

    Woot these are awesome! Is it possible to get these in above 128kb tho? That’s pretty low quality. Not trying to be a bad sport but I like my BB in HQ!

      I am sorry. This is the only quality I and the other fans credited here had found and I don’t think you’ll be able to find a better quality. I think the quality is pretty good, and also some of the songs are songs that got lost into oblivion and were really difficult to get… so… I think no possibility to find them in a better way… and I know what I am talking about. You would be surprised if you get to know who some of the “fans” sending the material were… so sorry again.
      Anyway I hope you enjoy them 😉
