Thread: Lost Sessions

  1. #1

    Lost Sessions

    I was listening to The Lost Sessions today. I was thinking that, prior to the anthology, this album was the closest thing we had to “demos.”

    However, I would still like to hear the stories behind some of these songs. I also think that all of these songs came from around Sevens or later. You can just tell by Garth’s voice that none of those songs are early cuts. I also wouldn’t be surprised if the truth was bent a little bit with that album...I kinda think some of them were cut specifically for the album itself.

    That Girl is a Cowboy was written by Jerrod Nieman and Garth in 2005. Definitely not a demo that was never released in the 90s.

    He let that fact slip out in one of the Studio Gs.

    Thanks. That may be when they were written, but I think a majority were actually recorded for the album. For example, you can obviously tell “Under the Table”was not recorded in 1988. I’m not saying that’s good or bad either way....I’m just saying I remember thinking when LS came out that it would be filled with these sort of magical songs that were recorded, but never made the cut....i.e., they were “lost.”

    It looks to me like most of the songs were those cut from Sevens and Scarecrow.

    He stated back in 2005 that they were songs that were not finished or not make the cut for any album, he also said he went in the studio and polished them up for the lost sessions. Polishing it up probably meant rerecording them

    Or writing them in 2005 for the Lost Sessions album.

    I'd be willing to wager that's a fact...
