Here is a MYSTIC EYES internet exclusive! Fourteen tracks from the band's archives etched onto a CDR for your listening pleasure. All are previously unreleased and available only through this web site.
First up, are two takes of Eric Lubstorf's unreleased folk-rock ballad "I REMEMBER" - His original acoustic demo and the finished version.
Next, thrill to a rockin' demo of Bernie Kugel's "HELLO LOVE" complete with harmonica, even! This is follwed by a rehearsal take of "I CAN ONLY GIVE YOU EVERYTHING" which is totally different from the studio version included as a bonus track on the "OUR TIME TO LEAVE" CD.
Hey, here's two takes of "Hang Up The Phone" - another unreleased Lubstorf song! You'll get to hear an unused instrumental backing track and then another demo version with Bernie's scratch vocals. Speaking of Eric, his original vocal take of "I DON'T THINK IT'S OVER BY FAR" is also included here.
But what about the Davison brothers, you ask? Craig steps up to the plate with his middle-aged lament "CAN'T HAVE MY WAY" while Scott maps out a touching self-penned life lesson with "GIVE IT SOUL".
Eric's back, reflecting on "MY LIFE TODAY". If you like FLOWERS-era Rolling Stones, then this be the track for you! Next, he takes a run though a simple folk ballad "PLEASE, PLEASE" and no, it has nothing to do with James Brown!
Uh, Oh! Here come the Davisons again! Craig uses his Alfalfa Switzer-like voice to fracture "SOFT LIPS" and "WAIT TIL THE SUMMER" while Scott finds a way to make "I WOKE UP IN LOVE THIS MORNING" all his own. Eat your heart out, Keith Partridge!
