This is going back a bit, but does anyone remember Al doing a song that starts off with or is titled "Down South In San Diego" or something close to that?? Whatever it was or is, it doesn't appear in any form on YT. From what I remember, it was an incredibly good song with an amazing hook.

That's an Alan Boyd (not Jardine) song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1PBw2xjCfs

Thanks, Wirestone!!. Great to hear it again. Could have been a great BB album track had they expanded and finished it. Didn't realize Boyd had such a great voice.

Can someone briefly lay out the various versions of Waves Of Love?

I've got two, a 3:48 version (starting with sleighbells and organ) and a 3:35 version (starting with sax, which has been labelled 'Demo Version' which may or may not be accurate, I don't know).

Aside from this 2.0 version, what am I missing?

I've got two, a 3:48 version (starting with sleighbells and organ) and a 3:35 version (starting with sax, which has been labelled 'Demo Version' which may or may not be accurate, I don't know).

It's difficult to label each version, but here goes:

Version 1
Included on *physical CD* copies of the 2012 "Postcards" album. This is the version starting with sax, which sounds more like a "live soundcheck" recording. On this version, the song is in a lower key, and Carl's vocals are mixed/buried within other voices. This version was apparently *accidentally* included on the physical CD. It was supposed to include the next version instead...

Version 2
Included on digital download versions of the 2012 "Postcards" release (and also on the Japanese SHM CD from 2012). This starts with bells and organ, is in a higher key, with mostly everything re-recorded from the other version. It's much dryer and punchier. On this version, Carl's lead vocal has been isolated more.

Version 3
Exclusive to the Japanese SHM CD of "Postcards" from 2012. This is essentially a slightly alternate mix of "Version 2", with just different mixing choices, and I think some of the lead vocal lines are missing as well. This definitely sounds like a "rough mix" on the way to arriving at "Version 2."

Version 4
Unreleased, found for a brief time a year or two ago on Larry Dvoskin's SoundCloud page. This version sounded closer to "Version 1" than it does to other versions, but again with some differences.

Version 5
Released physically and digitally as "Waves of Love 2.0" in 2021.
