The instrumental track on CD: E.P. Vol.6 – Fried Bananas & Gatorade originates from LP 68' Comeback (Memphis MKS 101) as released in 1976 and 1977.

On 17 june 1968 the producer Steve Binder asked Colonel Parker for the track.

It is actually take 2 from the LALLAL sessions. This is detailed, I believe, in the booklet for the FTD release of the film songs, and the info came to light when the tapes were found.

Keith's site also has this note:

Take 2 of 'A Little Less Conversation', when first discovered on acetate and released on the BMG CD Memories in 1998, was originally thought to have been recorded in June 1968 as part of the recordings for the NBC-TV Special. When the March 7 1968 session tapes were eventually rediscovered, this mistake was realised.



Right, thanks !

I must have missed that revelation [or forgotten about it] !

My notes will be amended to suit !

But was the song ever recorded for the 68 Comeback Show ?

And what is this 'instrumental track' from a 1970s album that colonel snow refers to ?

I only know of this appearing on the 1991 unofficial CD: E.P. Vol.6 – Fried Bananas & Gatorade.

When the first outtakes from the productionnumbers were released on VHS - video tapes in 1978/79 the audio-cassettes with these sessions followed soon. In the 80's/ 90's released on all kind of CD's / CDR's. Here scans from a release in 2004.

Thanks for the additional info, colonel snow !

Are you saying that A Little Less Conversation, although considered for inclusion, only got as far as the backing track being recorded ?

Why would they record a 'backing track' for a song scheduled to be sung in a 'live' segment ?

And why just that song given that treatment & not any other ?

What was the 70s album that included the track ?
