Why Wasn't This On The Album?


The post could be also called the missing title track, the track in question is 'Sreamadelica' by Primal Scream. Anyone know why it was absent from the album of the same name? The album was of course one of those that helped to define the musical landscape of the 90's, and it must be said it is an album that has well stood the test of time with its inspired mixture of 60's and 70's classic rock, think Motown, think Rolling Stones and the then trendy acid inspired house. This track I have as the B side of the 12" promo of 'Movin' On Up' and ever since the first time I heard it's wonderful dreamlike ten minutes of Herb Albert meets House Diva groove machine I've been in love with it. If you don't know the song then go ahead and treat your ears.

thanks thanks thanks thanks!
 
Wow, this is really good. Almost even better than "Loaded," and almost good enough to make me forget "Riot City Blues".
 
It's a shame Primal Scream aren't still pumping out stuff as good as this. They're still ok but with Mani onboard I've always thought they'd get back to the glory days of Screamadelica, but never have. Shame. Good tune though - cheers.
I've got some good tunes lurking around on my blog by a couple of unsigned Manchester bands. Check em out.
 
This copy is Made in France!?!?!?

Anyway, still so efficient on a dancefloor
 
Great post! I've loved this song ever since I bought the original Dixie-Narco EP cassette single (sigh, remember them?).

Reminds me a bit of Flowered Up's Weekender in its combination of different musical segments to make one groovy whole.
