Whatever Bob Dylan would have recorded had he not fell off his bike.

The fall wasn't fatal.....he went off to Woodstock with The Band; and the result was better than we could ever had hoped for......glad he got that break in the late 60s - he was completely worn out by the end of the 1966 UK tour

I agree, I love JHW and The Basement Tapes, but maybe if he hadn't suffered that accident he would've recorded something different, not better or worse.

Me thinks the "accident" was an excuse to recover from his drug abuse. But I know that I can't prove it, and that it's 'possible' that I'm incorrect, as "nobody knows" about this thing. But that's what I think.

This is the second thread today that I have answered with "Time Fades Away" by Neil Young! Still never officially released on CD, but it was prepared for CD and leaked. Definitely worth tracking down the bootleg.

Also, Neil's Journey through the past, which was kind of a mixed bag collection soundtrack from the film. Also never officially released, but it's out there!

Lots of lost Neil!

"Sister Lovers", the un-released third album by Big Star. Put out in 78 but booted a lot . Jeff Buckley sang "Kanga-Roo" off it; love that song.

The accident was really an excuse to get off the train of constant touring Grossman wanted him to continue doing. A lot of the drug specualtion originates with A.J. Weberman, who frankly is a nutcase.

This Mortal Coil did it too. They also covered "Song To The Siren" by Jeff's dad, Tim.



How about The Great Lost Kinks Album? Seems to define the topic.

Horoscope by Bryan Ferry. Aborted follow-up to Bete Noire. Some of the songs appeared on Mamouna, released in 1994. Three of the songs - Midnight Train, Blinded by the Life I'm Living and Your Love Has Died remain unreleased. The (unnecessary) re-recording of Mother of Pearl from the sessions appeared on the soundtrack to the equally unnecessary Kevin Spacey film, Ordinary Decent Criminal. Ferry's record company rejected the first draft of the album, because it lacked a single.

Alphaville, again by Bryan Ferry. The follow-up to As Time Goes By. Co-written with Dave Stewart. Some of the songs appeared on Frantic, others were recycled on Olympia - You Can Dance and the title track, albeit in different mixes. This was also rejected because it lacked a single.

Roxy Music's new album (2001-present). Mystery surrounds this one. Did they ever even record anything after their 2001 reunion? Nothing has leaked. Not even rumoured song titles. I'm guessing they did record a few songs, but they deemed them substandard.

Chic & Johnny Mathis - Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards wrote and recorded a whole album with Johnny Mathis in 1981 called I Love My Lady. This would have been released right after they'd scored a massive hot with their Diana Ross collaboration, Diana. Apparently the album was scrapped because Columbia didn't think the material was right for Mathis' core audience of middle aged women, and, secondly, there was a rumour at the time that he was about to be outed as gay, and a new album called I Love My Lady would have been a tough sell. The album release was cancelled. Nile Rodgers insisted it was the best thing Chic had ever done. The mastertapes disappeared. It was genuinely considered lost, until the tapes surfaced in Greece a couple of years ago. A few songs from the sessions were released on Chic's box set last year, and the full album has since leaked online. The myth was better than the reality. It's crap. Maybe that's why it didn't come out.

Donna Summer - I'm A Rainbow (1981). Produced and co-written with Giorgio Moroder, who'd not only produced all her previous albums, but made her an international star, I'm A Rainbow was a double album and intended as a follow-up to The Wanderer from 1980. David Geffen heard it and refused to release it because he wanted Donna Summer to go in a new direction. She then recorded the Donna Summer (released in its place in 1982), which featured a song called Protection, by Bruce Springsteen, who also played on it. He'd written Cover Me for her, but Jon Landau told him to keep it for himself, just as he'd done with Hungry Heart - originally written for The Ramones. I'm A Rainbow was eventually released in 1996. It's damn good.

Dave Wakeling - No Warning. The lead singer of The Beat/The English Beat's solo album. Read it all about it here. It's a helluva tale.

[marcoonthebass.blogspot.com]

Bruce Springsteen - Tom Joad 2. Bruce recorded a follow-up to The Ghost of Tom Joad, but was told/advised not to release it because the first album hadn't sold well. Some of the songs (The Hitter, Long Time Coming) were re-recorded and released on Devils & Dust.

"Four More Respected Gentlemen" -- the Kinks, which morphed into "The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society" and eventually was essentially released as "The Great Lost Kinks Album."

There was a book a few years back by Lewis Shiner called "Glimpses," in which the narrator goes back in time to help Brian Wilson finish "Smile," Jim Morrison finish "Celebration of the Lizard," and Hendrix finish ("First Rays"?). I never read it but heard the guy interviewed and read sections and it seemed pretty good.

BTW, "VU" is my favorite Velvet Underground album, and I love everything by them!

Here's a great "lost album" by Jerry Lee Lewis. Recorded in late 1970 during his brief renouncement of "worldly" music & concentration on gospel, this has only ever (until now) been released as part of an expensive 1986 vinyl box-set...

Phillip Debarge - The Pretty Things which finally gained a release a few years ago. It's a great psychedelic follow up to SF Sorrow.

The original Blood On The Tracks - most of which has been released on Biograph. There was talk some time ago that the album would be re-released with both the New York recordings and the later tracks recorded by Dylan in Minneapolis shortly before its release.

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - unreleased follow up to Deja Vu. The tracks ended up on the various solo albums in the early to mid 70s. There's a great bootleg that compiles some of these called Human Highway. The much vaunted 1974 Tour album is set to finally get a release later this year.

The Band - Tombstone. Great album made after Robbie left.

T. Rex - The Children Of Rarn Suite. Started in 1970 but unfinished - a snippet appeared on the great T. Rex album in 71.

Of course it was, I own the vinyl.

SISTER LOVERS and other titles in this thread were also released so I guess I'm confused about the topic.

Although it's a trainwreck of an album, there's a great version of "Ohio" on there.

Love - Black Pearl which was recorded in 73 but never hit the shops. And the good news is that it' coming out very soon.

Love - Gethsemene Plans for a follow up to Forever Changes were aborted. An album to be called Gethsemane would have been the fourth and possibly final record by the original lineup. Two tracks that appeared on a 45 called "Your Mind and We Belong Together" and "Laughing Stock" are rumored to have originally been a part of this lost album. It has been long speculated as to whether or not other tracks from the Gethsemane session ever existed.

If you read it in the context of my post you will see that I was referring to it never being released ON CD (like Times Fades Away). I also have it on vinyl and it's a mess for the most part.
