In 2002 David Mead created the later Wherever You Are EP aiming for a full album. Short after the recording David was dropped by RCA. The record was cut to a six songs EP and finally released by Eleven Thirty Records in 2005.
The Wherever You Are EP is simply a perfect record. It became one of my top ten records ever. All six songs are extremely strong pieces of work.
- Wherever You Are
- Hold On
- Only a Dream
- Make It Right
- How Much
There are eleven (!) songs that were left off from the EP. David offered some of these unreleased tracks at his site mineandyours.com as a Christmas gift (site site is down by now). The tracks give you a hint how the full album would have sounded like. In short: it would have been awesome.
These tracks are:
- Wherever (a beautiful intro to the original album)
- Beauty (rerecorded for the Indiana album)
- Growin’ Up
- Little Sister
- Oneplusone (rerecorded for the Indiana album)
- All Is Forgiven (unreleased)
- How Will The Kids Get High (unreleased)
- NYC Girl (unreleased)
Does anyone of you, my fellow readers, know anything about the three unreleased tracks and the original track order?
