Status of the songs recorded

  • All these songs were candidates to appear on We Love Life. In the end, somewhat surprisingly, none of them made it. Most remain obscure and unheard, with only one, Grandfather's Nursery, later being released (albeit only as a little-known free MP3 on Amazon.com and later on an obscure Spanish compilation).
