For the most part, the A-sides made it to the albums, while the flips were far more inconsistent, ranging from the chilly "Painted Sad" that could pass for an early For Against outtake, to rank throwaways like "Househunting" and the backwards tape experiment "Traeh." I hesitated to include the Up's final single "Untie Ian"/"Safer," as the same versions appear on the Rash ep , which I shared all the way back in 2007. Both songs are pretty phenomenal though, so I suppose they belong with this singles collection as well. By the way, the scan of the silver mylar sleeve for the "In the Shadows" 7" didn't translate very well with my scanner, as you'll no doubt see when you unzip everything. Enjoy (or not).
Song Of The Day: The Beach Boys, “Child of Winter” (1974) - Here is a rare treat for those of you in warmer climes...one of the rarer singles from the Beach Boys, a 1974 Christmas confection that nobody heard.
