MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

Smashing Pumpkins
"B Sides"
16 bit version

Source: SBD>??multitrack or DAT??>Virgin Promo ("B Sides")
Transfer: Virgin Promo Tape>Sony TC-K630ES>R-09(unity gain, 24/48)
Editing: Audacity (amplified, spliced tape sides together), r8brain (downsample/dither), CDWave (split), TLH (FLAC)


I'm guessing these were given to Virgin for potential inclusion as b-sides for the various Siamese Dream singles

thanks to bmaromar for the tape
Probably an upgrade to Purr Snickety. 24 bit to follow if there's any interest

thanks, fucko. i'll download it later.

redbull 07-31-2009 02:23 AM

Cool As Ice Cream 07-31-2009 02:24 AM

so are they any different from the 'usual' b-sides? And why 2 Blew Aways?

redbull 07-31-2009 04:12 AM

I don't think they're any different. Purr Snickety is probably an upgrade. I thinkthe mastering is slightly different on one of the Blew Aways

thanks people. 24 bit would certainly be most welcome!

redbull 08-01-2009 10:17 AM

working on 24 bit, megaupload hates me right now

jimmy drevpile 08-01-2009 11:06 AM

thanks again.

Can we have a RE-UP of this one please? From the sounds of it this is probably the best digital version of Purr Snickety that's available still, seeing as Jewberg crapped all over it on the Iscariot 2nd disc... along with everything else.

Most of the tracks on this Virgin inhouse promo tape were put on Pisces Iscariot, and were used on Siamese Dreamís CD- and Vinyl singles like Today and Cherub Rock. Whirl was renamed to Whir, Apathy turned to Apathyís Last Kiss, Purr Shnickety is a misspelling of Purr Snickety and Kitty Kat became Hello Kitty Kat. Also Bedazzeled is a misspelling of Bedazzled. Only for this reason of misspellings and renaming the tape is already very interesting. Research however proved that the 2 Kitty Kat tracks and the 2 Blew Away tracks are exactly the sameÖ Dating this tape is a bit hard as it contains the fully mastered tracks, which was possibly not the case yet around 1993/05/??. Maybe only around or after 1994/10/?? they were all mastered, thatís for sure. It remains a 1 of a kind curiosity however.
