All the News That Fits We Print

An update on the whole Floor Your Love The Album: This Time It's Personal! project, for those of you scoring at home:

Our Australian mogul at Zero Hour Records is now in possession of remastered audio and additional art elements for the official release, which will be unleashed on an unsuspecting world some time later this year, presumably. I'm also in the process of writing liner notes, which may or may not be included with the new package.

In any case, it's going to differ -- more than just slightly -- from the POJ release you all know and love, so hold on to them; clearly, they're going to become humongous collector's items worth gazillions of dollars.

Meanwhile, here's a track that didn't make the album. From the same sessions that produced "Following Up," which did. A remake of Andy's "You'll Come Around," produced by the irrepressible Glen "Bob" Allen.

This was, if memory serves, the last thing the original band recorded. I rather liked it at the time, but when it came time to compile the album, I concluded the original version we did was a lot truer to what the band actually sounded like. And in retrospect, I really can't stand that gated 80s drum sound, although obviously it seemed like the bees knees back in the day.

More updates as things develop, 'natch.
