For a long time I wanted to reorder and selection "rehearsals UMRK" song by song to make listening more satisfying and less confusing.
This collection consists of nine compact discs. Each CD includes "The birth of" a single song.
Maybe someone can please have a copy of it.
In any cd I put together the rehearsals of a single song that took place during several days.
This way you can follow the evolution and growth rehearsal after rehearsal.
I did a job of "cut and paste". Sometimes I combined fragments taken from Take1, from Take2, and so on...
I deleted some dialogues, the endless repetitions, false starts and downtime.
Sometimes I did not put the tracks in cronological order, I preferred order them according to a
criterion of pleasure listening.
Sometimes this rehearsals are not really the "birth" of the songs, but you can listen to the development and  progression of the musical arrangements and the learning of the musicians.

Great stuff, looking forward to hearing it all. One note: this is technically not the "birth of" Easy Meat, as it was played half a dozen times back in 1970 by the Flo and Eddie band. But whet the feck. Thanks for your post!

Any chance for a re-up? All of the files were downloadable except for part 7. Filefactory shows an error message: "Server Failed

This file is no longer available due to an unexpected server error. If you are the owner of this file, it will need to be re-uploaded."
