Given that John's official site was acting up for months to be then turned into a blog, I thought it would make sense to offer his 2004 alternate versions of SCWP songs for download; at least until that site's respected admins do something regarding this. Also, there will always be someone who hasn't heard of it yet.
This is how it was described on the official site:
I’m releasing this acoustic version of the album because there was so much production on the record -- there's so much layering of different types of sound and things -- that I just thought it would be nice for some of the fans who prefer a more raw, stripped down sound. They will just hear the songs in their raw form.
Also, on the last album I put out, we did acoustic shows and those went over really well. But I'm not doing those this time because I'm spending my time recording. So I figured I'd do a little performance in my living room and put it on the internet so people could hear me doing those songs the way I would if I were doing an acoustic show - JF.
So, please have in mind that it is NOT FAIR to sell this, as it was given to fans by John himself, from the bottom of his heart. Don't abuse his generosity. No money can make up for this beautiful music.
