The final one for the time being....Day Of My Ascension in demo version recorded at Dave's house  in 1992. Great version of one of my favourite songs. Happy birthday.

Wow Glee - what a great demo of a wonderful song!  Thanks so much for posting it and I can't wait to hear the reissue of LoW!

As this shows up as song number 15 on the 1992 demos when loaded into iTunes, can we surmise that Kieren is onto something?

Thanks for all the new audio Glee. Reminds me why I loved this site in the first place (alongside the sparkling wit and intelligence of everyone clearly....).  :)
It's an idea some day, in my tears, my dreams...

That would be nice wouldn't it!  Mind you, the other songs Glee recently put up come into my itunes as "The Kentucy Colonels"!  Now I know Glee is a big Clarence White fan but maybe he is doing it just for fun!

That's closer to the first demo recorded at my place in Norfolk
Street, which featuring just he and I, sounded like a spooky
Neil Young/ John Wesley Harding song. I wish he'd released
this version instead. Anything over 8 tracks is a waste of time
This is as hitech as one needs.

I'm obviously a bit behind the times here, but having noticed that some new audio has been posted I ended up downloading a whole load of stuff I hadn't heard, including this.

Utterly, utterly brilliant. Always one of my favourite McComb songs, but this version is, well… frankly, I'm more or less speechless. The hairs on the back of my neck are still bristling.
This could be heaven; shallow spreads of ordered lawns.

I've just noticed I didn't comment on this thread - and that must be a first! I have heard the mp3 before. Must have been too busy bottle warming and 3am shifting to remember to be thankful. It is a great version of the song. I've been listening a lot to the solo Dave audio over the last few weeks now that it's album sized. The whole lot are brilliant (although the Steven Street JV thing at the end doesn't exactly close the album on a qualitative high and seems a bit out of sync with the rest).....like a fine wine and Cohen's Hallelujah I guess these songs just take time. (Or is that statement my associative mind bringing Everything You Touch into play?)
