Sometimes It Is Worth Buying the Single

B sides, alternate versions, covers that's why! I know sometimes they are hard to find. Imports, limited printing, perhaps vinyl only. But check out the track listing to LCD Soundsystems new EP for All My Friends

Album Version
Franz Ferdinand Version
John Cale Version
No Love Lost (Joy Division Cover)
Harvey Mix
Freak Out/Starry Eyes (amazing 12+ minute jam session...)

So you get the original, covers done by two completely different artists (they are not remixes each just gives the original a different flavor), a bonified remix, a bonus track and a cover of a great tune. Go buy it.

Here is the Harry Nilsson version of Jump Into the Fire. LCD covered it as their B-Side to Daft Punk is Playing at My House (... my house!) 7" . Nilsson was an influential singer/song writer in the 60's/70's penning songs for The Monkeys, The Turtles, Three Dog Night, Ronettes, Blood, Sweat and Tears, you get the picture.

And while you are at it can you find me a pair of Action Jeans?

Oh did I mention that we may/may not have the new Spoon album Ga ga ga ga ga in house?
