But there's nothing to be "unhappy" about here. This is like recovering a long buried treasure chest and now it's available to visit as often as one likes I didn't really know what to expect the first time I played these CDs. Some of the songs I've never even heard of i. There was some chatter way back when that fans were upset that newly recorded drumming was added by Peter Huntington Rachel Fuller's drummer on some of the tracks that didn't originally have drums.
I recall reading in the liner notes? The drums and drumming sound different different drum set? Different mic-ing and different recording techniques? Peter H. Initially, I laughed at the internet banter of "complaints".
I can understand Pete's desire to "finish" something he believed to be "unfinished" and made "consistent" throughout the 2 CDs. But it isn't the same and after repeated listening, it all blends in anyway.
So at the end of the day - does it really matter? FYI - Kenney Jones drummed on some of the Face Dances demos - maybe you like them less now that I've "revealed that" or it really shouldn't matter. Personally, I think Pete is a great drummer. He hits all the right drums, adds some nice cymbals in key places and makes the drumming "interesting". Had he chosen to be a drummer vs. While Pete doesn't "bang" as loud, hard or as fast as Keith throughout these demos, he does lay out a great "map" for Keith to follow for the actual album which Keith drums brilliantly on Drumming aside What we have here is an "expanded view" of the "Quadrophenia" universe.
I initially thought that not having a "" demo would be a problem wouldn't it be so easy for Pete to record one and stick it in??? The expanded version of Pete's masterpiece doesn't need it. It is a great song, but doesn't really work for me here Jimmy was "thrown out" - is this a "flash back"? It's a nice song, sorta simple and perhaps too simple for the complexities of "Quadrophenia" - but I tend to "skip" past it when I listen to these demos. It doesn't quite sit well with me This version seems a bit loud and abrasive - perhaps what Pete intended to convey for someone "getting tossed out of the house" I'd love to hear the other version to compare.
The "Quadrophenia" Soundtrack version is certainly more "refined". A scooter a nod to the mod culture and therefore, a reminiscence of the band's own Quadrophenia album cover showing a mod scooter. The band's Face Dances cassette edition album cover.
