Selected Outtakes is a misnomer for this archival release from Greek psych rockers Acid Baby Jesus. The two songs on this 7″, “Amalia” and “Hermit,” aren’t outtakes from the band’s 2014 opus Selected Recordings, just early recordings of two songs from the album. However, those two songs, “Night Of Pan” and “Ayahuasca Blues,” were so strong in their finished state that I’m totally OK with scouring these early versions for differences. The melodic structures are pretty much the same as the final product, but “Amalia” has different lyrics and there’s new ghostly psychedelic sounds and hard-hitting drums on “Hermit.” The trade-off is that these versions are (in true demo fashion) a step slower, and the tones, which are so crucial to the finished product, aren’t completely locked in at this early stage. It’s good, if somewhat inessential, stuff for a small but dedicated subset of listeners who still have Selected Recordings in heavy rotation six years after its initial release.
