David Mead wrote Wherever You Are in 2002. Short after the recording David was dropped by RCA. It was cut to six songs and finally released by Eleven Thirty Records in 2005.
The Wherever You Are EP is just perfect. It became one of my top ten records ever. All six songs are extremely strong pieces.
- Wherever You Are
- Hold On
- Only a Dream
- Make It Right
- How Much
There are eleven songs that left off the EP. David offered some of these unreleased tracks at his site mineandyours.com as a Christmas gift. The tracks give you a hint how the full album would have sounded like. In short: it would have been awesome.
- Wherever (a beautiful intro to the original album)
- Beauty (rerecorded for the Indiana album)
- Growin’ Up
- Little Sister
- Oneplusone (rerecorded for the Indiana album)
- All Is Forgiven (unreleased)
- How Will The Kids Get High (unreleased)
- NYC Girl (unreleased)
Does anyone of you, my fellow readers, know anything about the three unreleased tracks and the original track order?
