Samantha Gamma: A Lost Alternate Version
Samantha Gamma is one of those songs I was never going to release on an album it was extremely personal and I honestly didn't think it was any good.
At the time I was running out of options for Altered Faze and as a lark I put it on the album, replacing another song, Memento Mori.
My thinking at the time was if Altered Faze is going to be "slow burn & low fi" lets keep it that way and not throw an uptempo song halfway through an album with nothing to follow.
Years passed and then literally the other day my Western Digital 2 TB external hard drive finally crashed. (I had it for almost 7 years, it was a sad day. I'm gong to create a future post of this. Something strange happened.) While I was recovering all the files and folders I could. I noticed an "Experiment 1" for Samantha Gamma that was completed.
I listened to it and to my astonishment it sounded really good. It was entirely stripped down and had an entirely different chorus & verse that I don't remember recording.
I have uploaded the song to Dropbox:
Samantha Gamma (Lost Alternate Version) Located Here Containing: 24 Bit HD Wav File, 320 HQ MP3 File, 320 HQ AAC File.
I personally would listen to the 24 Bit HD Wav File. That will sounds closest to my home studio.
I went ahead an uploaded a LQ Version you can stream/download below.
The original song (album released version) is HERE.
