What are your favourite Pulp songs that were never properly recorded nor released? (you can include songs from the reissues).

Mine would have to be "My First Wife" (the "loud" one), it would have sounded great on "Separations". I also like "Take You Back", it certainly fits in very well with the dark direction they were pursuing at the time and with a bit of work a recorded version could have been great. Also, "Didn't Feel a Thing" certainly had potential, if you compare the 3 or so recordings that are in circulation, it does seem to improve over time. I'm guessing this was shelved either because the band didn't like it or they couldn't afford any more studio time.

That After You, Cuckoo and Quiet Revolution fell through the cracks makes me sad. Would have probably made We Love Life their best album.

Oh yeah; Rattlesnake, Going Back To Find Her, Death Comes To Town and maybe My First Wife (the slow version) makes Seppy their second best record!

Agree with most here. I feel Snow is just absolute masterpiece of a song, when I listen I do wonder how many times they actually played that song and just how lucky we are to have it. Also, those songs they debut in '87 at that Limit show like Heart Trouble, Rattlesnake, Death Comes to Town, both versions of My First Wife and Going Back to Find Her. Oh how I wish they'd recorded that album. That alternate Separations, first side as is but second with those early '87 songs would be amazing I think. Their best album of the '80's!

I love this show

 They used to be available to download from Pulp Wiki, that's where I got them from, but I can't find them on there now. I did check Ian's wonderful site and I did download the Limit gig I mentioned above. It's a pain not having access to my music files.

 That's correct, only three. Thank you very much Ian, that's a great project you have.

Lost Classics?

Death Comes To Town, Cuckoo, Roald Dahl (Should have DEFINATELY been a b-side, rather than the likes of Rosin Murphys Sorted), We Can Dance Again, and this is a controversial one as it was indeed released, but Shes A Lady - before it got butchered and bastardised for His N Hers - no other Pulp song comes close to being destroyed as an album track.

 With you on this- Pink Glove (my favourite song of all time) also got pretty butchered compared to the live performances

As great an album His n Hers is, certain songs lost their identity between live shows and the finished album version. By the time his n hers was released in 94 a number of songs were already 3 years old - pink glove , shes a lady , babies - which was closer to 5 years old.

They lost their live identity in favour of fitting on a buller sounding album. I've heard easily 40 live versions of shes a lady....to compare them with the album version they are far superior

Babies was '91 too, wasn't it? To think of it as an 80's composition just feels...wrong!
