Notes: Outtakes from the `Rock In A Hard Place' Lp via the "Pure Gold .999" bootleg on P&E Records 001. I have a cassette copy from the disc, so someone may have better version, but I didn't see it uploaded here, so I added it. I LOVE the RIAHP album!!! It just rocks, is funky, flows from tune to tune with a great vibe. It's totally overlooked because it lacks Perry/Whitford, but its a great listen. These are some rough outtakes that surfaced on a boot Lp in the 80s. Here are some notes from the Rock This Way site (http://www.rockthisway.de/discography/bootlegs/puregold999.htm) : Outtakes from recording of 'Rock In A Hard Place' in Miami, The absence of Tyler during the some of the period is reflected by the number of tracks which are instrumental versions. A few have Tyler ad-libbing vocals.
Gut Bucket Blues (instrumental) and Take It Or Leave It #13 eventually became Bolivian Ragamuffin.
The alternate version of Bitches Brew is an instrumental. A version of Riff and Roll turned up on Pandora's Box but recorded at The Power Station, NYC in Sept. 81, a year earlier.The version of Joanie's Butterfly is an instrumental which is how Crespo intended it to be until Tyler added lyrics from a dream he had. Jailbait, Cry Me A River and Lightning Strikes are also primitive versions of the final songs.
