The Lost Tracks of Danzig
This is all I’ve been listening to for the past two days…
I didn’t realize it came out until I read about it (on the plane to Norway) in an interview with Danzig in the new issue of SPIN.
‘Lost Tracks Of Danzig’ is old stuff that dates right back to the first Danzig album [1988’s “Danzig”] right through to now. I was only able to start work on this album when the court case was finally sorted out. When I left American Recordings in 1994, Rick Rubin sued me and I sued him. I ended up winning all my unreleased material back. Anything he never released, including any live shows we recorded that he never put out, I won back and own. There was some stuff that he has yet to turn over because he can’t find them—well, he says that he can’t find them—but I have most of the recordings. He still has the rights to the albums that were released through his label, but we’re trying to get them back now because he hasn’t been accounting back to us properly. So we’re trying to get those back from him. But that’s a whole other story.[Blistering]
It’s making me very happy.
