so I went out and bought fiona apple's extraordinary machine at amoeba yesterday. i got the dualdisc version, hoping that the performance of "extraordinary machine live of club largo" would be the performance I saw, but it's not. Additionally, it turns out dualdisc breaks the official CD specifications because they have to make the cd thicker to manufacture it, and in the process shrink the CD audio part. and my powerbook doesn't like that. it skips and garbles and generally sounds like a scratched CD.

so back to the store it goes!
(after ripping the DVD side of course)


i tried.


(did i mention that the jon brion version is better anyway?)

on the version released on CD, the first and last tracks are jon brion ("extraordinary machine" and "waltz (better than fine)").
the rest were done with Mike Elizondo, brion had no part in them (except for having already recorded/produced/arranged/finished his versions, which are the leaked versions, and were scrapped in favor of re-recording them with elizondo).

of COURSE jon brion's version was better. good lord. listening to this new "oh well" makes me want to throw something. it's so bland...not nearly as beautiful and dark as jon brion's.

P.S. if you have the whole jon brion version could i have it?? i only have a couple of the songs but i want the whole thing...
