I've known the original lp since the 70's. I know every note. Then the cd came out....it was something fresh....but nowhere NEAR the masterpiece of the original release...no matter what warner brothers did. That was the lp....I learned it, memorized it....and the first version you hear of ANYTHING is usually the version of choice for most.<br>

Please stop faking quotes in my name. I NEVER said this shit. Anyone who knows me knows that I would NEVER say this shit. I don't know what I did to deserve such agitation pushed at me, especially over something I never said in the first place. Can we end this argument now? This is getting ridiculous.

victory? what the fuck? this is about admitting a fact. LP sides can go over 20 minutes, which you denied about 100 times in chat last night, but now you're saying they can. you're the one with the ego problems.


I wasn't IN the chat last night, schmuck.

Psst, Earth to Timmo. You're embarrassing yourself by repeatedly making claims that you have absolutely no evidence of.

Please stop stomping your feet and throwing your little temper tantrums. You are in the wrong. Accept it.

HAHAHA! How did I just know, just by looking at the very title of this thread, that not <br>only would Isaac be involved -- but that there would be exuberant bickering, indeed.  ;D

I think Thana Harris did an ok job on the Sleep Dirt songs, some of the high notes are sorta rough.   Who do you think would have done a better job?  How about Gayle McCormick or Janis Joplin (had she still been alive at the time)?
