wall of death is a great cover from that era (hi-fi I believe).

There are two Arms of Love (automatic era). One is an acoustic song. One is more strings. The strings one is amazing

I don't think I've heard this second version of Arms of Love that you speak of...

For those of you who don't know a lot of these, these are the places to start

01 - Fretless
04 - Photograph (this is with Natalie Merchant, and it's great)
06 - The Great Beyond
07 - All The Right Friends (this is a re-recording of one of their first songs (pre Chronic Town)
08 - Bad Day
15 - We All Go Back To Where We Belong
06 - Arms Of Love (both versions, but the one I just linked is the better of the two)
07 - The Lion Sleeps Tonight
08 - Wall Of Death
10 - Sponge
11 - Draggin' The Line
17 - Indian Summer


I didn't know Indian Summer was a cover, actually.

i kinda forgot about draggin' the line. that was a good cover.

if i remember right, revolution isn't a favorite of many on here, but i dig that song a lot and it's cool to me that a line from it is used for the title.

thanks for this, a nice surprise find in this thread.

the live versions were really good (of Revolution) but I do not like at all the studio version
