Elected Re-Recorded?

Post by concolz » Wed May 30, 2018 8:41 am

There's an Alice Cooper 'Songs' thread on the Hoffman Forum, which is currently discussing the BDB album. One poster has stated that Elected was re-recorded for the album version. Is that correct?

Not that I'm aware of but I don`t know for sure. Listen to them both and see if they are the same?

Same recording, slightly different mix.

Yes, that's what I've always thought. As I understood it, Ezrin mixed the 45 vocal so that Alice was 'centred', giving it a bit more 'oomph', for AM radio. The original album mix had Alice's voice panned to the right channel only.

The album mix would not have worked well with mono AM radio.

I find the elected and UMW single mixes the most different from their album versions.

My 1st record player (mono) was a hand me down from Grandma :HEART: with tubes & a "railroad spike" for a needle! ::((:
The album mix didn't work well on that either!! Thank goodness for Electrophonic! A Christmas present after blowing volume tubes monthly!! :8):
