Hi, I'm new here. As I'm eagerly waiting for the new album, like most of us long-time fans, I thought that maybe Allen could be remembered adding a vintage recording as a ghost track to the finished product. Having been a key member of the band for all these years, I feel he deserves to be represented in this new opus. Most likely just a fan's dream, but I'm wondering what the people in this discussion group might think about it. it does no harm to ask, or, as we say in Italy, "asking is allowed, answering is kind"
We pretty much plumbed the Allen archives doing the box set re-issues. I'd be open to discoveries tho.
well, there is the Career of Evil rehearsal with Patti Smith. It would be the best ghost track if all the rights things can be fixed.
I can't see anyone wanting to include that on any kind of audio release, it just doesn't meet their standard. Now, if they were to include that snippet on some kind of overall career retrospective DVD, then it has some merit due to the *visual* aspect of seeing Allen with the band.
