Pausing for a short break in my ongoing Ringo Deluxe editions, I thought I would return to a project that I began earlier in the year. I have wanted to complete this for some time, but just never got around to it.

This collection attempts to gather all the relevant available recordings from the 'Somewhere In England' era. As you will no doubt know this album was originally rejected by the record label for being to downbeat and was released only after significant changes were made to the track listing and in many cases the mixes.

I have presented the tracks across two discs, the first being the released album along with the officially released demos and edit versions available, along with an appropriate track written by George and given to Ringo.

Disc 2 is the original album as presented to Warners, the source of these tracks are the version of the original album I posted earlier in the year but with what I believe is a significant improvement to 'Lay His Head'. To round this disc off, I have added the remix tracks made available over the years and the re-recorded Greenpeace version of 'Save The World'.

For each track I will give some detail of the work involved in their preparation, which in some cases was significantly more than i had anticipated!

Disc 1

Tracks 1-10. From the original CD release. I prefer this version because of the lack of dynamic compression compared to the reissue. It is also the only source for the short version of Unconsciousness Rules.

11 - Life Itself (Demo) - It has become apparent to me that either the original 'Songs by George Harrison' bonus CD was produced with digital errors or every bootleg I can find with the track is from the same poorly ripped source. I have gone through the track, sometimes as slow as 1% of the correct speed, trying to hunt down as many artifacts as possible, there are a few very quiet ones still there but I can't seem to isolate and remove them. Hopefully you will not hear them!

12 - Save The World (demo) - Straight forward except If you look at the lyrics in the tag I have not been able identify the word in the line, 'Dog food ......'. Clearly this was 'salesman' in the album version, but at this point was something different.

13 - Teardrops (45 Edit) - From the great needledrop by VooDoo records 'George Harrison - Rarities'.

14 - Wrack My Brain - Sadly I haven't unearthed some hitherto unavailable version of George performing this track. This is Ringo's version as recorded for the 'Stop And Smell The Roses' album. George does appear faintly appear on the track and it does sound like a 'Somewhere In England Track' which is why I decided to include it. As a bonus the version here is the ultra rare Canadian single version as prepared for my 'Stop and Smell The Roses' Deluxe edition.

Disc 2

1-10 The album as originally envisaged. As I said previously I used the version I previously posted here http://www.bootlegzone.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=32440&p=278223&hilit=somewhere+in+england#p278223 with the exception of a reworked version of 'Lay His Head'

11 - 13 Remix versions from the 'Songs By George Harrison' bonus CDs. Again a number of digital artifacts have been manually removed from 'Tears Of The World'

14 - Save The World. As released on the Greenpeace charity album. The start of the track appears to be clipped on the album. It sounds like an intro may have originally been there which was removed before release. I have attempted to restore this so it does not sound quite so jarring.

Please enjoy and a happy New Year to all!!

Phil_Lip,

Tears of the World (original version) is missing from the tray insert artwork.
Sat Singing (remix) is missing (both the song file and on the artwork) although according to Madinger, the remix is nearly identical to the original mix.

Does the mix of Unconciousness Rules on the SIE remastered CD differ from the original, unreleased mix?

superb set Phi_Lip !!! :bounce:

for a long time the Pegboy (related to Vigotone) (which came out in 1996) "Somewhere in England" was one of the best source for this album :

Phil_lip, Such a suburb set inspired a little creativity and a little vintage postcard base upon the inner photo of George within "Somewhere in England" ala the Victorian era to say thank you again! :D

Yep Tears of the world is missing from the artwork. And the track numbers (when downloading) (on disc 2)are not right either. John

:oops: I'll look at this later. I made a last minute change to the running order and obviously confused myself.

I did a side by side comparison and could not hear any differences.

I believe there is no differences in the mix, but I am relying on reports at the time the CD came out. It's a good point and I will do a comparison just to make sure.

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to re-upload this, as I'd love to hear the original version of SIE in the best quality possible and it seems quite hard to find it anywhere other than YouTube.

Apologies if this is against any rules, feel free to delete this post if so.

Thanks again.

Philip
