CHEAP TRICK – In Color [re-recorded 1997 / the Unreleased Steve Albini sessions] *0dayrox Exclusive*
To complete the CHEAP TRICK series featured here, now we have a rarity: ”In Color re-recorded 1997 / the Unreleased Steve Albini sessions”. At the second half of the ’90s CHEAP TRICK was working on a project with producer Steve Albini, and in-between Zander & Co. decided to re-record the band’s 2nd album ‘In Color’. They were happy with Tom Werman’s original production – which discovered CHEAP TRICK’s power pop side – but disliked the mix.
So with Albini behind the desk, CHEAP TRICK re-cut all the original ‘In Color’ 10-track songs, with a rawer approach and almost recorded live into the studio, with a few overdubs. The band also taped 5 extra songs at these sessions (also included into this file).
This recording never was officially released but found its way into the hands of some collectors via a cassette-dubbed master-sourced CD leaked by an ex-employee of the band.
We have compared several copies floating around, but none sounds as good as this one owned by one of 0dayrox‘s staff member.
