Radiohead – Lost Treasures

Everybody loves B sides and Rarities. Everybody (or least they should) loves Radiohead. How about we combine the two?

The resultant offspring is Lost Treasures, and what a beautiful child it is. An excellent double disk album, Lost Treasures offers probably the most comprehensive listing of non-LP work from Radiohead between 1993 and 1997. And while I would hesitate to call some of the tracks “treasures” and the album is annoyingly scatterbrained in composition, Lost Treasures is nonetheless an invaluable source for some real radiohead gems. It also does a brilliant job of chronicling change in the band’s sound from Pablo Honey –> The bends –> OK Computer.

Be sure no one else is around when you take a look at the track listing because contained within the confines of this treasure chest is enough rare material to make any RH fan pop a chubby…Sorry, I recently heard that expression from an Aussie friend and really wanted to use it. ANYWAY, lets look at what this the album has to offer:

1. Yes I Am  
2. Inside My Head
3. Pop Is Dead
4. Thinking About You
5. Killer Cars
6. Creep (acoustic)
7. Trickster
8. Lewis (mistreated)
9. Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong
10. Permanent Daylight
11. Lozenge of Love
12. You Never Wash Up
13. Maquiladora
14. Planet Telex (Hexidecimal Mix)
15. India Rubber
16. How Can You Be Sure?
17. Subterranean Homesick Alien
18. My Iron Lung

1. Street Spirit (acoustic)
2. Killer Cars (acoustic)
3. Wonderwall
4. Blow Out
5. Pearly
6. Melatonin
7. Meeting In The Aisle
8. Bishop’s Robes
9. A Reminder
10. Polyethylene (Parts I&II)
11. Lull
12. Climbing Up The Walls (Zero 7 Mix)
13. Climbing Up The Walls (Filia Brazilia Mix)
14. Palo Alto
15. How I Made My Millions
16. Wish You Were Here
17. Talk Show Host

As you can see, the album has a bunch of acoustic takes, live cuts, remixes, covers, and Studio tracks. The acoustic takes of “Blow out,” “Subterranean Homesick Alien,” and “Street Spirit” are all fantastic. I also really dig the Zero 7 remix of “climbing up the walls.” But by far the most interesting inclusions are the rare studio tracks. Many of these are from the Iron Lung EP but Lost Treasures also has some sick tracks that are hard to find elsewhere. Definitely check out the Iron Lung songs, but I also highly recommend: “Lull,” “Pearly,” “Bishop’s Robes,” “India Rubber” and “Talk show host” (written for the 1996 Romeo + Juliet movie). On second thought, please just listen to everything – this is some great stuff.
