Living In An Alternate World" (no label) is an early version of the "Living In The Material World" acetate, including outtakes, backing tracks and alternate mixes. The sound quality is excellent (studio recordings), and the cover is an attractive 6 panel insert with lengthy liner notes.

This bootleg is void of the usual repetition and sub-par rehearsal quality of many outtake CDs and is a fairly complete vision-in-progress of George's "Living In The Material World". It is labeled "2nd pressing" and first appeared on the Roaring Mouse label about a year ago.

Review by: Steven,On 05 Mar 2000
This is a nice collection of outtakes from the sessions mentioned above. The differences are noticeable and interesting (not alternate mixes with one note deleted), and the sound quality is good, despite the tracks being taken from an acetate. The inclusion of Try... and Miss O'Dell is rather pointless.
Review by: François Vander Linden, beatleg@easynet.beOn 28 May 2000
A nice bootleg, really. The songs are really enjoyable. This is not a compilation of obscure B-sides or leftovers but a gathering of some of George's best solo songs. It is like a sort of "greatest hits" but with alternate takes/mixes. This is the kind of bootleg you will listen to only for the listening pleasure. Great job.

I really don't know what happened with the scans of this album here, mine are colorful????The album is original though.This album is great by the way, lots of songs very raw sometimes giving us the exact idea of the song itself without the intermission of Mr.Phil Spector whose sometimes does a preety nasty job.Enjoy, and listen to It several times a day, It's worthy.

I think this disc is mediocre. I don't agree with the sound being rated as "excellent." Good seems a little better. The sound, in my opinion, is okay but often muffled sounding.

TRACK 1= Give me love: very few differences between this and the released version, a few instruments are slightly louder, but that's it.
TRACK 2=Sue me, Sue You Blues: Backing Track with intro and no vocals. Pretty much the released version, without fadeout.
TRACk 3=This one qualifys as different. Vocals are different, as well as slightly different instrumentation. Different finish to the song.
TRACK 4=A little muffled, no lead guitar, no vocals.
TRACK 5=Different instrumentation, vocal. Some words have changed. George's vocal is overall strained and weak.
TRACK 6=Backing track only, no lead guitar part.
TRACK 7=Guide Vocal, no lead guitar or horns.
TRACK 8=Take 2? Louder keyboard drone, guide vocal, different drum (congas?)
TRACK 9=Again, muffly sounding. Backing track only without a lot of overdubs, George sings every once and a while.
TRACK 10=Muffled. Backing track with a lot of tape hiss. You can hear George singing way in the background at times.
TRACK 11=Average quality. Average Song, but seems out of place.
TRACK 12=Different Mix. Why is this track last when it's not last on the album? It makes little sense.
Overall, if you love the Living In the Material world than you'd think this was an Okay bootleg. If you think "Living" is only an average record, you'll think this boot blows.

I have a copy with a different quote on the back and no booklets. The quote says "In life, there is usually a fixed means to a variable end". My cover is colour too.
Review by: FoxHoundOn 30 Sep 2007 at 17:00 CET
I also think it's a new interesting look to the "Living in the material world" LP.

For dedicated fans and collectors, just having a different note in the middle of the song makes it really valuable, so I don't really care if there are little differences with the original disc, I think the versions presented here have their own mystique.
Review by: alessandromarinhoOn 30 Sep 2007 at 19:25 CET
The versions here are not siple versions, they have no spector's ''wall of sound'' on them, which is a huge improvement already, plus, one must consider the date this boot was released, really core.
Review by: Kevin IslesOn 03 May 2011 at 07:41 CET
A very cool collection. It's a great insight into the making of this record. It's similar to the material on the ATMP apple acetate releases, unfinished mixes of the songs. If you like the official version of the album, this would be a great compliment.
