Standing In The Middle

So I just listened to the song and I was wondering where the song came from and I actually found nothing that satisfies me. The only actual information about the song I found are either from the LPA Wiki (which we know isn't that reliable) and the LPL "Did you know" Facts (which also doesn't list any sources so I don't really trust all of them).

 

LPA Wiki: http://wiki.lpassociation.com/index.php/Standing_in_the_Middle

The song was recorded as a warmup for Motion Man's appearance on Reanimation.

7. The song "Standing in the Middle", featuring Motion Man (with CD LPU 4.0), was recorded in 2001 as a preparation for the song "Enth E Nd" from the album Reanimation.

33. Standing In The Middle' from the LPU 4 CD was a song recorded by Motion Man and KutMasta Kurt (featuring Mike) for their 2002 album "Clearing The Field". It did not make the album and was released to the LPU instead.

So yeah, the first two statements say it was just a preparation for Reanimation while the third one says it was for Motion Man's album. There is also a comment from Mike about the song (see LP Underground Track Commentary in the Wiki) but it doesn't help at all, so I'll just leave it out.

 

I searched around for sources of these statements and I simply can't find any. The second option, that it was recorded for "Clearing The Field", makes much more sense but why the hell does it end up on a LPU CD then? I would be glad if anyone could confirm any information about the origin of the song.

Mike brought it up in an online chat years ago (either LPU or Fort Minor), all he really said at the time was that they recorded it at the same time they were working on Enth e Nd. This is literally the first time I've ever seen any mention of it being recorded for an album, no idea where that came from. Calling it "warmup/preparation" for Reanimation really isn't correct either, they were just working on 2 songs during the same time period.

Ha, so if you don't know it I guess no one knows it :-D

Did really no one wondered, for the last 10 years, where the song came from and what it was supposed to be for? I don't think they just were in the studio and thought "hey let's produce another track, just for the fun of doing it" only to release it two years later on a LPU CD.

Well it was a song just between Kutmasta Kurt, Motion Man and Mike. They had an album coming out at that time, so it's a good assumption that it was recorded for that album but didn't make the cut. However, we don't know that for a fact like you said. The only way we could know that is if we asked one of those three people.
