Willard Grant Conspiracy – Sticky

Glitterhouse is giving away an MP3 of a Willard Grant Conspiracy track I did backups on, called "Sticky".  It appears on a new best-of compilation called There But For The Grace Of God — this version of "Sticky" sounds like the version that appeared on the Color of the Sun EP, which was an alternate take of the one on the album Mojave — but the timing is different from either of those versions so I dunno, maybe this is an alternate-alternate.  I’ll ask Robert the next time I catch him on IM.

(Thanks to Craig at Songs:Illinois for the heads-up!)

I did backups, along with Carla Torgerson of the Walkabouts, on almost all the songs.  This is the European version — a slightly different version was released in the U.S. on February 20, 2001 on Slow River / Rykodisc.
