New Archive release: Night Bells (Original)


Listeners with a keen ear will have long since noticed that some of the tracks released on the second soundtrack were altered or "spruced up" with additional elements. "Night Bells" was one of these (along with "Audrey", "Shelly", "James And Evelyn" and "Packards' Vibration").

This week we get the original, unaltered version of "Night Bells" (apparently named "Abstract Mood" in the Archives). The differences are pretty small- in fact I'm pretty sure it is the exact same version, but there were elements added to it and altered on the CD. More distortion, heavier guitar noises. So the new released version is basically the "clean" unaltered version that was used in the series.

The Archive has released it under its original name, but even though "Abstract Mood" is a very cool name, a name change seems needlessly confusing. So I am keeping the "Night Bells" moniker. They have also included the Slow Version of the track that was heard in episode 28 when Hawk finds a disorientated Major Briggs wandering out of the woods after his ordeal with Windom Earle.
