E (eels!) Rarities Tape Repost

Okay bit of a repost today. Early next January Eels will be releasing two pretty snazzy new packages; one a greatest hits with a music videos dvd, the other a 2cd rarities compilation with a live dvd. Now the hits is obviously pretty cool, but the rarities thing is really gonna be amazing for those fans (ie most of them) who haven't collected all the singles as they've come out. There are some absolutely essential and classic Eels songs on this cd, and along with Suede's Sci-Fi Lullabies it looks to be one of those rarities releases that actually beats some of the bands studio releases. And for those fans who DO have all the bside, it's also got 12 previously unreleased tracks. Aceness. So yeh there's more details on that on the Eels site, but my post today goes some to help you Eels fans get EVEN MORE. Because, sadly, the rarities compilation isn't quiiiite complete, there's still a lot of excellent stuff to find. One of my favourite ever items is an old tape that I first heard through the tape trading circuit in the late 90s, and which compiles the vast majority of pre-Eels E solo studio rarities along with demos, studio outtakes and radio appearances. It's quite, quite wonderful.

Update: some of the links weren't working; that's fixed. Also, to the person that asked, that's definitely E doing harmonies on the cover of Sorry Suzanne.

Oh, nice. I don't think I ever heard that Jon Brion cover of Sorry Suzanne. But are you sure it's E singing on that? I'm not sure if this really qualifies as an E/Eels song , , ,
