Is it "More Power to You" or "More Power to Ya"? I have seen both on various pages. --Veggieman 19:00, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Physical Copy[edit]

Does anyone still have a real physical copy? I would like to know what the cover art looks like. --Supernintendo64 (talk) 16:54, 27 August 2016 (EDT)

What's right?[edit]

Someone uploaded these to YT. Should we link to them from the main pages? --Nehushtan (talk) 12:17, 31 August 2019 (EDT)

If anything's going to be linked to, I think it would make more sense for it to be my site, only because it provides easy downloading. (I know there are ways to download stuff from Youtube too via browser add-ons and such, but then one would have to do the work of breaking up the full thing into individual tracks, and who wants to bother with all that?) All my DAS stuff is on my main mp3 page here. --Self Called Nowhere (talk) 20:47, 31 August 2019 (EDT)

Album Versions[edit]

Listened through podas 1 & 2, and I'm pretty sure these are all just their respective album versions: Pencil Rain (Dial-A-Song), Hey, Mr. DJ, I Thought You Said We Had A Deal (Dial-A-Song 2), Hall Of Heads (Dial-A-Song), Don't I Have The Right? (Dial-A-Song 2). They sound a little sparse coz it's through DAS, but comparing the spectrograms they're identical. The only differences I can find:

  • extra autoharp during the guitar solo in DAS Pencil Rain
  • no backing vox in DAS Mr DJ, and the fade-outs cut off
  • drum sounds are different in Hall of Heads

Pretty minor stuff & I dunno if theyre worth having their own pages. These differences could be noted on the regular song page. Anyone wanna double check this? Or any objection to these pages removal? --Batwho (talk) 00:20, 30 August 2022 (EDT)

Pencil Rain didn't really stand out to me as being the same as the album version at first but I can definitely see the similarities between both versions now that I'm looking for them. Kinda sounds like an earlier mix of the song. Hall of Heads and Mr. DJ I believe are definitely the album versions, alongside that one James K. Polk recording that got its own page. I haven't properly listened to version 2 of Don't I Have The Right? but from the snippets I did hear from it, it did sound similar to the album version - Mrsomebodyelse (talk) 02:36, 30 August 2022 (EDT)
Good call about Polk, I reckon that's the same too. Pencil Rain's hard to tell, but it's definitely the same vocal take as the final song. That makes me think rest is the same. --Batwho (talk) 03:33, 30 August 2022 (EDT)
I can definitely notice similar instruments to that of the final song, the main thing that stood out to me was the drums, they sounded a lot more sparser in the recording, but that again could be a DAS thing. Also thought it'd be worth mentioning that the DAS version of Spider sounds very similar to the final version, except the intro's slightly different and Flansburgh's "must stop!" is replaced with a repeat of Linnell's "I promise not to kill you" I was wondering if those differences still warrant the DAS version its own page. - Mrsomebodyelse (talk)
