The Definitive Del Amitri Rarities Series, Vol. 4: The Twisted B-Sides

Like Change Everything, the following Del Amitri album, Twisted, contributed many of its non-album b-sides to the Lousy with Love compilation, so this brief installment consists of only five songs.  There are some other, live tracks that appeared on singles and a limited edition bonus disc, which will be posted in a whole big "live" segment later on in this series (which I probably shoulda mentioned in the Change Everything post, since there were a few live tracks on those singles, too).  Meanwhile, here are five swell little tunes from Justin and the lads -- it's Rare Stuff, y'all!



Contents (Title/Source):
A Better Man/Tell Her This [Disc 1]
Life By Mistake/Driving With The Brakes On
A Little Luck/Driving With The Brakes On
Queen Of False Alarms/Here And Now [Disc 1]
Someone Else Will/Roll To Me [U.S.]

  5. All these posts are fantastic. I can't wait for all the live stuff. I salute you sir! :) AND..I sure hope some soundboard stuff comes up someplace of Justin Currie's latest tour..that would be a real treat.

  6. 2of3, you ain't bad! (Note to self - must stop joking about commenters names!) ;) I'm with ya, except I'd settle for a good audience recording! I'm bummed I couldn't catch Justin's tour this time as he didn't make it up to this corner of the country (NW) and I lacked the funds to go to where he was. I shall have to content myself with the pair of shows I got to see on the WILF tour, and Justin's complimenting my writing -- I wrote a preview of his show in the local weekly, which he discussed on his myspace blog.
