Format Info

2LP Black Vinyl

A myriad of alternative takes and demo versions from Spacemen 3’s album “The Perfect Prescription” Including, at the time of the CD release, some never before heard tracks. In his liner notes, Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom says this release presents the album’s songs in their “full guitar laden versions with all the layers of beautifully streamlined guitar — considered by us to be too hard to replicate live and therefore reduced for the original release.” “For me, this is where Spacemen 3 song writing came to a head – many of these songs pre-dated “Sound Of Confusion”, some were even recorded at both sessions, but I am still impressed mightily by Jason’s lyrical genius on originals like “Walking With Jesus” and re-writes like “Come Down Easy” and his fluid guitar playing across the whole sessions. To be sure “Playing With Fire” was soon to be our long and sultry Indian Summer but “Perfect Prescription” was the progeny of that hot, lazy (and occasionally rainy) summer.” Sonic Boom
