The Hatters – Madcap Outtake – Bad Side (alternate take)

When The Hatters recorded “The Madcap…” album up at Bearsville Studios, while jamming and playing Bad Side, the song got naturally reworked from the way that we’d been rehearsing it in NYC prior to the recording sessions. We thought we made a better more exciting version. Well it turns out it was Wendy, our A&R person’s, favorite song and choice for the single and she didn’t like the changes we made. She had us re-record the song the way we had been playing it originally. We did that in NYC at River Sound while mixing the rest of the album. Here’s the original Bearsville version that never came out.
