They never recorded On My Way Now.. I had to go back to 2 inch tape to pull everything from One Day Remains for this... On My Way Now was never recorded. :(

fuck so you can confirm this information, correct?

We've had this rumored for so many years, but nothing really legitimately close to confirmation and nothing this legitimately close calendar-wise.

Thought we knew they never recorded "On My Way Now"? Pretty sure that was confirmed before BLACKBIRD even dropped.

Yep, I recall Mark/Myles confirming this in a variety of interviews years ago; but hey, no better confirmation than having a man go back to the ODR source recordings!

I remember Michael Tremonti saying something how huge the recorded version of On My Way Now was, but he might've been talking about a demo version. My memory also might be distorted here.

I'm really excited about these B-sides. I honestly think this package is more interesting than DC3's overpriced boxset because of that.

I can't even remember what was supposed to be in the box set, seeing the price and the b-sidelessness made me pass on it fairly rapidly.

Secretly hoping for a digital release of the DVD on Fret12, like the band has done in the past. I'll easily drop $10 for a download.

But Fret12 isn't releasing it - Napalm Records (their label) is. Wouldn't hope for it..

Good point. Alas. Wasn't sure if Fret12 had actually produced the content itself or not.

Oh well. Can live without it.

I Ordered the deluxe boxset yesterday with the keycoard, plectrums and other fun stuff. didnt want to buy the earbook becasue the cd's are always so hard to take out of those earbooks. rather have cd booklets with it. And the earbook is more expensive then the deluxe edition.

This got me pretty pumped for the documentary. Of course they will likely use the juiciest quotes in the trailer but still, it seems like there will be some pretty rich content.

When was Brian's darker time? Some time around the ABIII era, right?

I think our foreigners are stoked for all the B-Sides in one place. I usually get my albums at Best Buy though so I've heard all the b-sides and I've seen enough of their live shows and live dvds where buying another one is kinda like why. I'm pretty much just interested in the 2 tracks I've never heard :lol

Personally, I'm pretty excited about getting those bonus tracks. Sure, I already have Never Say Die, Symphony of Agony, and Breathe (due to buying the Best Buy copies of Fortress and The Last Hero). However, I didn't buy Blackbird or AB III, at the time, due to being in high school with no job and I got the Live From Amsterdam version of New Way to Live, but I wouldn't mind having a CD version of The Damage Done, New Way to Live, Zero, Home, and Never Born to Follow since Spotify does not have those (well, they do have Home and Zero).

As for the ODR tracks, personally, I'm not as excited for those tracks (even though we had never heard of them) compared to the other bonus tracks they've released.

You're nuts! I'm unfathomably excited for the ODR b-sides. It's not often you get truly taken back to the those magical early days. I'm almost ashamed to admit hearing "Breathe" moved me more than any of the other songs on The Last Hero. Not that the newer songs aren't moving, (in fact they are likely way deeper than the older songs,) but I have more of an emotional connection with the band's ODR sound. It's just so crazy to hear new material that was actually recorded back in 2004. I can't wait.

Yeah, I own every other b-side, but I'd drop $20 for those two ODR cuts alone. Live album is extra content, as far as I'm concerned.
