I just discovered a Veruca Salt song that I'd never noticed before!

Sleeping Where I Want

The other day I bought a cheapo copy of American Thighs to keep at work, and it's the last track on the CD. But here's the thing: I have my beat up, tattered old cassette copy of this album in my car, and I listen to it frequently, and I have never heard this song before.

How the fuck did that happen?

Bonus tracks!

Happens all the time. CD's hold 80 minutes of music. This is almost twice the music of a typical 45 minute vinyl album (the "standard" for a musical releases). Bands record more music than will fit on an album, and the group and the label decide which tracks make the cut. When releases get remastered, often some tracks from the master recordings are put on re release.

I have several albums I replaced on to CD that have "extra" material. In my case - since I listen to more mainstream classic and progressive rock - the "bonus tracks" have already been released on some boxed set.

Yes, but I'm the Veruca Salt fan. I've got all of the albums, both of the EPs, a good half dozen CD singles -- including one or two Australian imports. So how did I manage to miss the fact that their very first album had been re-released with a new song at the end?

The truly ridiculous part is that when I looked at the CD I had at home (yes, I have three copies of this same album -- CD at work, CD at home and cassette in the car), "Sleeping Where I Want" is on it -- it's just the cassette that ends with "25." Maybe the cassette is some kind of rarity. Too bad it's in such terrible condition.
