Reverberation.

Postby Hotrats63 » Sun Feb 14, 2021 3:05 pm

I’ve always really liked the non-McCulloch album Reverberation.

Lots of psychedelic touches all over the album. I had known they never made another album with Noel but didn’t know they did a handful of non-album tracks. From looking about I can see:

Lady Don’t Fall Backwards
Prove Me Wrong
Fine Thing
Reverberation
Inside Me, Inside You
Wigged Out World

It looks unlikely we’ll ever see an expanded version of this album. So are these tracks available anywhere in a lossless format?

Cheers.

Cheers for reply.

I’ll have a look into them. This seemed the logical starting place, but I’m
Maybe too old fashioned!

I see you are new here. We did a community interview in 2008 (wow! 13 years ago, how is this possible???) with Noel Burke after I tracked him down. The interview is kind of buried in here now but here is the link:

Thanks for that. Interesting read, he had certainly put the Bunnymen days behind him!

Just to let you guys know that I bought a Reverberation promotional tape that seems to include (as per the tracklist) Fine Thing and Salvatore, presumably in full Geoff Emerick treatment since it looks that a promo of the completed album. Apparently they deleted these two tracks before release and never used them as B-sides etc. They must have re-recorded a cheaper Fine Thing in 1991 since they didn't own the rights of the original WEA recording (really looking fwd to hearing this one since it's a favorite). Bought it some 3 years ago but still haven't played it. As soon as I rip them I'll upload them to YT or similar. Cheers.

Fine Thing was a b-side to the 7" Reverberation single, it seems like a studio version to me here as there is no audience noise but maybe it was a live in a radio studio (see below):


A live version of Fine Thing was a Prove Me Wrong 12" b-side according to various resources but I've never heard it. It says it was recorded by BBC Manchester (is this the same as above?)

Never heard of Salvatore. It would be interesting to find out if the one on your cassette is the same one on the single(s).

Hi Brian. No and yes. "Fine Thing" is a studio b-side to the "Prove Me Wrong" 12"/CD single from 1991. This single also includes the cover of 13th Floor Elevators' classic "Reverberation" (it says "live", but sounds like a radio session rather than a live gig).

What I have is a 1990 WEA promo tape of the Reverberation album as we know it (albeit with an altogether different running order), plus Fine Thing and Salvatore. My guess is that this version of Fine Thing will be different, since the b-side version sounds relatively lo-fi as the rest of the stuff they put out on their own Euphoric label, and the single notes do not mention WEA at all.
It seems they had re-recorded Fine Thing, since they could not use the WEA recording for obvious reasons.
Salvatore was played live by this line up but until I found this tape I didn't know that a studio recording existed (apparently from the same WEA album sessions).
