What Have I Done To Deserve This - Demo snippet?

#1 Post by canveyboy » Mon 29 Apr 2019, 11:02 am

On the 3rd part of the recent Radio 2 documentary series ‘Definitively Dusty’ it sounds like what could possibly be a snippet of the original demo with Alee Willis on vocals? Might be wrong but I’ve not heard that before:-

It is.

A bit later in the programme there is also snippets of what supposedly is the shelved single mix of Daydreaming.

Nice to hear it after reading about how Alee Willis originally did the vocals.
It's an edited 40 second clip with minimal production. Anyone notice the beat sounds a bit like When Doves Cry by Prince?
I think it's almost criminal they're sitting on this track, I'd like to hear the full thing.
Pretty interesting nonetheless.

A bit similarity for inspiration, the final drum sounds different. ;)

I always like to hear a demo of a track. It's fascinating how it sometimes sounds like the released track (Always on my mind) and sometimes it's changed a lot (Vocal).
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

Go figure what else there is in the vaults that's not of "master quality" so probably will never see light of day.
The single mix of Day Dreaming is excellent as well. It should have been released.
