I don't know how many people use youtube with smart tv boxes or not but ocassionaly like to have it running in the background with a playlist so I'll compile play lists based on album/compilations, when Walter Passed got back around to compiling one for his tracks, really like to thank Dmod as he helped me get a number of songs that were on accounts that got deleted. Traces his solo stuff from 11 tracks of Whack clear into the recent releases. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLT_cXq-gXWjA8IIDZ_XdMhSfJeRN8E2Aa I also made ones for Steely Dan the album tracks, rarities and Jurrasic Era tracks if anyones interested. Thanks again Walter for all the great songs.

I assume some (if not everyone) browsing these forums has listened to this collection. Shows up online as Rare Tracks of Whack or Tracks of Whack-Demos and Outtakes. In case however there are some who hadn't heard it, it was an expansion of an earlier collection of outtakes and demo's called Just Another Story that added an earlier demo of 3 Sisters and a demo of Hat too flat and book of liars. The whole Album encompasses 10 tracks total: 1. Junkie Girl (Demo) Almost the same as the album version minus the guitar solo. 2. Girlfriend (Demo) Walter's vocals for the rabbit shouting portion song are significantly livelier. 3.Cringemaker (Demo) has a completely different sound with the guitar rifts. 4.Medical Science (Demo) Also very different from the Japanese bonus track, sort of unpolished in comparison. 5.Sampaiku- Has a reggae sound to the melody. 6.Ghost of Hypno's Past (Outtake) Pretty haunting sound in both the melody and Becker's vocals. 7.Lies I can believe (Outtake)- Possibly one of my favorite Walter Becker Songs of all time even now. Easily one of the most polished songs in this collection. 8.Three Sisters Shaking (Alternate Take) Very different sound then the one posted here, uses more electronic organ, no real guitar. 9.Book of Liar (Demo) slightly different pitch 10.Hat too Flat (Demo) Missing some background instrumentation from the Album version. Just was wondering what others thoughts were on the sound of this set. I find it fascinating look at how the final album evolved.
