Here’s the remixed version of Talent Show

 

https://rhino.lnk.to/TalentShowMW

Probably more accurate to call it the de-mixed version, as it is the original mix that the band and Matt Wallace submitted to Sire. All the “polish” in the album cut was added on (and a ton of band character removed) after the fact.

 

Definitely makes me eager to hear the other tracks!

Markedly better.

Well Dead Man's Pop is out and I've gotta say, I'm blown away.  It is SUCH a different album, and while I still think it likely belongs in the lower 1/3 of their cannon, it is markedly better than the '89 version.  I now realize why the band was so disappointed with the final cut - the album they created with Matt Wallace is so superior -- everything from the mix, track sequencing, quirky little intros/outros, etc. 

 

Some of the weakest songs on the album benefit the most -- an earnest and anything-but-polished "They're Blind" transitioning into the raw, brash "Anywhere's Better Than Here" is just brilliant.

 

I could go on, but if you have any feelings (good, bad, or indifferent) toward Don't Tell A Soul, you've gotta check it out.

I love it. I haven't listened to the whole live set yet, but there are some really great cuts on there. I always thought "I Won't" was one of their weakest tracks ever and even that's listenable.

 

I saw them the night after the live set here at Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul. It was the night after my first date with the woman who would become my wife. I was in college at the time and spent the rest of that summer working at a summer camp about 3 hours away so I have a pretty emotional connection to that show and the "Can't Hardly Wait".

I've always liked DTAS, probably more than most Mats fans. But it's amazing how much of a difference this new Matt Wallace mix makes. It blows the old version out of the water.
