Xero Hunting Vol.2: The Search for "Rhinestone [The Crow Version]"

Recommended Posts

Now that this is floating around, I just want to point out the interesting fact that the instrumental track on this version is identical to the Hybrid Theory-era demo with Chester. They probably started recording demos as soon as they got their Zomba deal and used those as the base tracks for future demo revisions (similar to how the various Esaul/Super Xero demos have identical or very similar instrumental tracks and different vocals). I'm willing to bet there are similar demos with Mark for Slip and Esaul.

It's not that identical. It's similar. With Chester it is louder and the sample after lyrics "And I'm far from a wait list" is slowed. And I agree with you, it's on 100% that there are Xero - Slip and Esaul versions with Mark. I can imagine his voice in those demos. We know that Mark is on the credits for those two. I also believe that all demos from Xero Sampler Tape are re-recorded with Mark in studio.

True, the "hoo-hah" sample thing in the chorus is a bit different. The core guitar/bass/drum stuff is all the same though, and it sounds like the samples in the bridge are too. I feel like they kept the same main instrument tracks when they were revising demos early on and only re-tracked live instruments as they needed to.

Was the lpu12 demo before the 9 tracks one?


For Rhinestone you’re saying? Apparently it’s identical to the 9 track version, just a better quality. Some of the other ones from the era such as ITE, Esaul and POA from LPU12 all have a slight difference, though.

It's so great that the track was found and became public. I found out about it yesterday. Many times already listened. ))

 

Tell me, please, it was not shared in lossless? MP3 only (on reddit)?

I think the information about the length was taken from the back CD cover.

Spoiler

Real length is 3:44.
