Quote from: popcorn on November 02, 2021, 05:45:48 PMNever thought it was one of Radiohead's best to be honest, but then their unreleased stuff generally never was, that's kind of why it stayed unreleased. It was always a fairly basic song and this basic acoustic arrangement feels like an appropriate resting place for it. Happy to take it as a snapshot of the time.

Quote from: Wayman C. McCreery on November 05, 2021, 10:11:16 AMLike Spinning Plates is good but the rest of the bonus disc is pretty dismal. I'm relieved I cancelled my order for the triple vinyl.
Quote from: purlieu on November 03, 2021, 08:12:04 PMThe full band version of I Will (was it a b-side?) is by far the best version of the song, the album one is so utterly horrible I can't believe they thought it was the best they could manage with the song.
Quote from: Wayman C. McCreery on November 08, 2021, 08:56:43 AMApparently the vinyl's a bit of a shitshow. Distorted and loads of them are off-centre according to Discogs and r/radiohead.
Quote from: popcorn on November 08, 2021, 01:35:38 PMYeah the new version of LSP gives a fascinating insight into the development of the song, but it's obviously unfinished and nowhere near as well crafted as the final studio version. I think doing the piano arrangement as a live version instead was a nice fate for it.I agree the extra verse is awkward and was probably the result of initially trying to exactly mirror the reversed melody from I Will. It clearly took a bit more tweaking to get the melody to feel natural that way round. The piano arpeggios and chord progression aren't quite right either.I think the fan frenzy triumphing it as the superior version comes from the fannish tendency of fetishising "the songwriter and his instrument" over arrangement or studio craft (which is what actually makes Radiohead interesting to me). It's like the version of Motion Picture Soundtrack from OKNOTOK - great performance but not what the song needed to be on record.
