STP RECORD: 29 songs written, 25 songs being considered
« on: September 16, 2019, 09:52:59 am »
Last weekend I found some stuff in boxes, one of them, a print of the MKNEWS website from March 6th 2000 regarding the record "Sailing to Philadelphia". I took a picture of it.

It says that 29 songs were written and of them, 25 songs were considered for it.

Obviuously we know some of them were released, and we know thanks to ISWN-NET some unreleased titles, so I´m gonna guess:


PROBABLY THE 25 SONGS CONSIDERED


RELEASED SONGS (EUROPEAN VERSION)

01. What ot is
02. Sailing to Philadelphia
03. Who's your baby now
04. Baloney again
05. The last laugh
06. Silvertown blues
07. El macho
08. Prairie wedding
09. Wanderlust
10. Speedway at Nazareth
11. Junkie doll
12. Sands of Nevada
13. One more matinee

US (and UK) RELEASE

14. Do America

15. Long highway
16. Let's see you
17. Camerado

UNRELEASED TRACK PLAYED LIVE ON TOUR

18. Pyroman

SONGS LEFT OUT TO BE PART OF THE DUETS RECORD WITH EMMYLOU HARRIS

19. Red Staggering
20. Donkeytown

KNOWN UNRELEASED TITLE TRACKS

21. Two skinny kids
22. Bonafide
23. You are not even gone
24. Don't mean a thing
25. Cold Turkey

THE REST OF TITLES THAT ARE KNOWN I wonder which are the remaing 4 songs of that 29 between these:

26. It's been a while
27. A cut above the rest
28. House on top of the hill
29. I'm doing better now
30. It's what I want
31. Cross my heart and hope to die
32. Walk on down that road
33. Markin' time
34. Unsent
35. For the want of something better
36. I didn't expect there to be you

You might get lucky, now and then

At that time Ed was still manager and I believe usually had a say in what went on the album.  You could always rely on a good album with Mark's trademarks stamped all over it when Ed was at the helm.  More recent albums haven't utilised his attributes to the full.  I would conclude that these songs aren't as good as the ones on the album, unlike the ones cut from DtRW final release.
