poison to the mind

Alright, a couple more overlooked-even-at-the-time gems from underneath the landslide of snow and rocks. I left the faffing and intro at the end of the session version on the previous post to TEASE YOUR EXPECTATION for this next track, except then I decided four versions of one song made a much better post. You know, thematic consistency and all that.

So anyway, here's the Tweakin' Mix of "Rolling High", the original version of which appeared on El Producto - this remix only appeared as (possibly the only exclusive track) on 1998's Homebake compilation.

Perhaps more exciting, their cover of "Do You Know The Way To San Jose?", from an all-Australian tribute album to Burt Bacharach, entitled To Hal & Bacharach (there were one or two songs by lyricists other than Hal David, I think). This is also from 1998 or thereabouts.

And just because you're special and you deserve it, another track from the same presumably-never-to-be-reprinted-due-to-licensing-headaches compilation - here's musical & life partners Dave Graney and Clare Moore roping in the Dirty Three for one of their rare stints backing a vocalist. I think Dave was going through his brief period of being famous around this time, or maybe that had already passed like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Anyway:
