Offbeats - Don't Take My Advice
This is a song I always liked. Unfortunately, I am not that fond of the long rant at the end. What was my problem back then? Who knows. Ah, young musicians...usually self-centered and going on and on about their problems. Whatever, dude. The unnecessary ending bit is why I have always resisted reissuing this song in the past. Actually, I now find it amusing.

There are two mp3 files at the above link: the original 1986 LP mix and a new 2011 "speedy ending mix." Yes, I sped up part of the ending, in order to dispense with it sooner. I prefer the new version, if any. You might not, which is why I've included both.
Historical note and name dropping info: The "Evolution" album was produced by Randy Burns. His production resume includes such heavy hitters as: Megadeth, Nuclear Assault, Possessed, Dark Angel, Ludichrist, Zoetrope and Death. Also the first Flaming Lips album and the Pontiac Brothers. So I guess this was our heavy metal album.
There is also a different recording of "Don't Take My Advice" that was released on the b-side of the "Out of Breath" single. Sorry, I have not included it here. You could always buy that record on eBay, if you are interested. It usually sells for about 5 bucks. Have a happy 2011 people!
