Doesn't surprise me. Is it good? I never bought the boxset.

I got the True Blue songs off iTunes. Apart from the sound quality (mono!), they're great. I especially love "California Bound" with a hard-rocking ending and "The Farewell Bend" with a brilliant slide guitarist.

I've heard some of them on youtube now. They're all of a piece. Very listenable. The vocals sound relaxed. Guess I'll grab them off iTunes or another vendor (as opposed to going whole hog on the boxset).

The Farewell Bend is the best of the batch IMO. Fantastic version.

The Farewell Bend is lovely. I can't find the True Blue version of Western Star. Is it good? I'm missing a version of 21 Reasons.

I realized today that I actually never listened to the extra mp3 tracks from pledgemusic.com. I don't even remember how you got them, I just found the files on my computer... Did you get them only when preordering the box set? Anyway there's a stunning live version of Dog In The Sand, I wonder what show it's from. Oh and full band version of Jumping Beans!

Dog in the Sand live, that would be great. How is the full band Jumping Beans?

I was looking through the credits on AllMusic for the Catholics box set the other day and noticed an unfamiliar yet kind of legendary name - Tommy Stimson on bass.

Heard he played with the Catholics once or twice during the final days between Catholics and Pixies and he is friends with Dave Phillips. Also read Charles let him use his studio during the 03 or 04 tour for his Gorrilla Head album.

But does anyone know what he actually played on with the Catholics? I'm guessing the Red Letter Days bonus album demos but if anyone knows for definite please share.

I think Stinson produced The King and Queen for Frank & The Suicide Commandos as well

Use Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/artist/427226-Tommy-Stinson?filter_anv=0&type=Credits

He plays the bass on the Farewell Bend demo
