So far we missed out on Smashing Pumpkins tribute cds on SPfreaks. As there are quite a few out there we thought we should have this category anyway. The first entry is from a Polish contributor that goes by the name Bartosz. Thanks Bartosz!

If any of you collects these type of cds, scan them and bring ’em in! You know where to find us! :wink:

Happy New Year everybody! :D

Ok, i’ve e-mailed it in.

For those of you who are impatient to see who covered what by SP, i shall reveal; Madina Lake covered Today. It’s actually quite an interesting cover. I’ll upload a .wma of it if anyone wants… (i use wma files, not mp3, when i’m ripping Cd’s as it’s about the same quality but smaller file size :) )

*edit* here’s the wma. Judge for yourselves :)

And you are right, it’s not a bad cover by Madina Lake! I played it several times while uploading your entry. Cool. This is the band (which will be touring France, Germany and UK this month, starting 2008/01/09, check their website!):

Hello SPfreaks !

I am Bart from Poland who scanned Rockabye Baby […] :).
I also do not like tributes and will never buy any more, but this one I posted is actually great ! There are no vocals ( = no dumb ass trying to sing like Billy), everything is instrumental; you may actually play it for your little baby for goodnight !

Some woman in Japan covered Today as well for a Final Fantasy game (12?) Anyway, half is English half is Japanese. I was bummed when I got it, as I just thought it was Today on the game, but it’s not too bad. Definitely has a different mood to it.

There’s also that MySpace Tribute CD.

and Act IV? Bram may know more about this. Fan created I think.

I DOUBT it was 12. I’ve got that, played it to death. I would DEFINITELY have noticed it – i even downloaded the OST, and at no point was there any form of Today.

Yeah you could be right. Roman numerals tend to elude me. As does Roman history, and the polytheology therein. Basically anything Roman is Greek to me.

yes that is correct, it says on the cd, previously unrelesed. it was done by most dangerous race. that is ok about the phrasing, i am always misprashing things, along with misspelling them too.

I have a couple of SP tribute albums :
Rockabye Baby Lullaby Renditions
Myspace triute to..
Gothic/Industrial tribute to..
String Quartet Tribute to..

I like the lullaby renditions and string quartet the most (they’re both instrumental).
The string tribute also has an original composition by the group inspired by the Pumpkins \"The Prize goes to the ghost children\".

I also have \"Takes\" by Adem, which is an album of cover songs of various artist’s (including PJ Harvey, Bjork & Aphex Twin) which features a cover of \"Starla\", I think it is quite possibly the greatest Pumpkins cover I have ever heard :)
Really does the original justice, without resorting to it being a kareoke(sp?) version.

Cool.

You mentioned that you have the CD – would you mind ripping and uploading it for me? I’m very interested but alas, not in a position to get it on ebay :( (something to do with being too young to have a credit card or something :lol: )

Can we have scans of almost all of that? I mean the jewelcase (front & back), and a scan of the cd, for uploading on SPfreaks.com? Rockabye is there already if I’m right, I just received the MySpace cd scan (wasn’t there a cardsleeve promo too?) but the rest is missing I’m afraid. Well, see what you can do, whenever you feel like it. :)

mine didn’t have that, but i got it off of ebay, do you have the card sleeve? i was trying to find the artical that went along with it. but i am in the middle of packing. so it is not easy for me to find it right now. i have been looking through boxes though, counter productive, i know, but i hate it when i can’t find stuff.

If you got the CD out of the magazine, it didn’t come w/ the sleeve. The sleeve was a promotional only item (same as one in magazine), but I guess it was sent to radio stations? Not sure, but I know it didn’t come w/ the original magazine.

All known tribute and karaoke cds with Pumpkins songs on it are uploaded. I used pics from eBay, Amazon, SPFC and of course the stuff you guys brought in lately. Nice work! Check all 17 (so far) of them out here:

http://www.spfreaks.com/Default.aspx?pa … DEX&cat=37

For some reason 2 of them tribute albums intrigue me. SPFC states they are released on exactly the same date (?) and there is not much info found online, I’m afraid. If any of you can tell us more, or even provide better pics/scans, would be highly appreciated! I mean these 2:

I had never really heard any of the tribute albums before, but the other day I sampled most of them on a download site and I have to say I was mosty unimpressed. The instrumental ones are better like the String Tribute, but the ones with the other bands were not that great. Of course part of it is that I can’t imagine hearing the songs by someone else, but the interpretations were mostly kind of weak. I think the only Pumpkin cover I’ve heard and liked was Amy Lee of Evanescence covering Zero. Its a bit different, but its pretty good. :wink:

Is that on a release, so we should put it on SPfreaks? If so, can you provide scans or so?

I have a live bootleg of it I can upload if someone wants it, I actually don’t like their version of it, but then I’m not a fan of them either, so maybe that’s why, I liked the Gliss cover on the myspace tribute, and there was one on the gothic/industrial I liked but can’t remember which.
But in general : yeah I prefer the instrumental tributes more.

It came off of a release called Fallen Angel. It mostly has her songs, but she also covers Zero and Heartshaped Box- both live. It was released in 2004, but I think it was just a digital release and maybe even a bootleg. I’ve only found it for download on Eastern European dowload sites, which do carry bootlegged material (including Pumpkins). So there really isn’t anything to scan and its not on any officially discography for her band, so I think it is bootleg.

I like Evanescence personally. The cover does’nt come close to the original, but I think its an improvement on the stuff on the SP tribute CDs. Those CDs are not the greatest. :wink:
