Additional Information

There is a DAT (Digital Audio Tape, copy of the studio master) circulating with these 10 tracks (not sure if this is the actual running order), no pics yet known however. Though it is also commonly referred to as Reel Time Sessions II, it was actually the third time (in Fall 1989, recorded in 1 day) the Smashing Pumpkins were hiring this studio. The first period was in late 1988 to record Sun, Dahlia (appearing on Light Into Dark) and East. The second period is described in another entry on this site called “Reel Time Sessions Electric”.

We have decided to call this “release” Reel Time Sessions Acoustic, as the other Reel Time Studios DAT contains the electric tracks, that were recorded in an ongoing process of recording in Summer 1989. Just to give this DAT a timeframe we have set it to October 1989, which is maybe wrong. At the moment we are also unsure if this is a separate DAT from the electric sessions DAT, or that all the Reel Time Studios tracks were together on 1 DAT.

Some info taken from The Smashing Pumpkins Recording Sessions Version 3.2 – August 2000 (compiled and maintained by: Jesse Miller):

“NOTE: This session was booked to record live-only favorites such as Razor and I Am My End. Unfortunately Jimmy didn’t show up and, since the studio time was prepaid, it morphed into an acoustic session. This was noted as a sloppy session with many false starts. D’Arcy was present but did not perform.”

Most tracks are not fully played, there is much joking around, there are many breaks and lots of banter is going on. Some say the recording went like this:

-Stars Fall In
-With You
-Waiting For You Now
-Fat Man Blues (abandoned)
-Fat Man Blues (tease)
-Fat Man Blues (1st half)
-Fat Man Blues (2nd half)
-Bleed (tease)
-Bleed (2 false starts)
-Bleed
-She (2 false starts)
-She (abandoned)
-Vanilla (multiple teases)
-Vanilla
-My Dahlia (2 teases)
-My Dahlia (abandoned)
-My Dahlia (abandoned)
-(jam tease)
-Fat Man Blues (tease)
-Waiting (aka A Trip Unto Bountiful)
-Sun (abandoned, with teases)
-Fat Man Blues (tease)
-Stray Cat Blues (multiple teases)
-Stray Cat Blues
-I Am One Part II

There is 1 fully played track of interest for the fans: I Am One Part II, which is a follow up to I Am One. None of the tracks of this DAT have been released elsewhere (except for Vanilla, which appeared on Mashed Potatoes), however they have all leaked on the internet and are rather widely available.

Additional Info: This track is cut into 2 takes on the Reel Time Sessions Acoustic leak. One take is 2:07 and the other take is 2:25, in which you hear more of Billy Corgan's banter and joking. However, when Billy put this track on Mashed Potatoes, he left behind the banter and gave us the full 3:20 version.

Will I see you smiling
When I see you out the door
Then I know I’m lying
Then I know I’m out the door
I’m out the door
Then I know
That I’m really fucked
Then I know that I’m gone
What you do
Yeah, I love you too
And I know I’m what you want
What I do
Yeah, I love you too
And you’re all than I want
Oh
What it is, I know then
What it is, I know is true
Talk about you
When I want, I’m feeling
What I know I’m seeing to
Talk about you
What it is
I don’t really know
What it is doesn’t show
What you’ll do
Yeah, I love you too
Can I see you to the door
What you’ll do
Yeah, I love you too
And I’ll see you to the door
Doo doo doo doo doo
[Whistling]
([Laughs] keep ’em rolling, wooo)

(Billy: fuck!)

(Billy: sniffle!)

It’s all I wanted
It’s all I could see
You can watch me bleed
Daylight comes and washes over me, me
Take what you have wanted
This is not your cross to me
And there’s someone beside you
What they want is in what they see, see
Feeling in your arms
Was more than I could see
It’s all I wanted
It’s all I could see
And there’s something inside you
Daylight comes and washes over me, me
Feeling in your arms
Was more than I could see, dear
Feeling in your arms
Was more than I could see
One and two is three

(Billy: talking for 40 seconds)
She will never, ever go
Waiting for her man
Waiting for her man
She will never, ever see
Waiting for her king
Waiting for her king of me
Wall to wall I hear the noise
Standard in her voice
Simple in her choice
She…

Do you scream
Or do you dream
I am vanilla
I might consider this an invitation, yeah
More than you think
I need a drink
I am vanilla
I might consider this an invitation, yeah
She is my only friend
I’m with her till, till the end
Yeah, they talk about me
I’m with her all the time
And I wish that she, she was mine
Yeah, they talk about me
I am
I am vanilla
I am
I am vanilla
I might consider this an invitation, yeah

Or do you scream
I am vanilla
I might consider this an invitation, yeah

Waiting, I am waiting
And who you are now
Starting, I’m starting
Pleading, oh yeah

One step closer to you and your pain
Reaching, reaching through
Ah you, who are you
I will return
I will return
I will return
I will return

Written By:

Quiet walls sputter yes
Rolling tears of pain
Must I go into your hiding room
Using your loss to gain
Walking in the sun
I never fear the light
Walking in the sun
I never fear
Quiet confusion haunts me still
My will can’t reign
Must I go into your hiding room
Using your loss to gain
Walking in the sun
I never fear the light
Walking in the sun
I’ll know that I never fear
Walking in the sun
I never fear the light
Walking in my sun
I know that I never fear

Length: 3:37

Put your feet on the sand

And you want share of honey

I’d be pleased if you’d just come upstairs

It’s no hanging my door (?)

It’s no capital crime

I can see you, just fifteen years old

I don’t want your I.d

You’re scared you’re so far from home

It’s no hanging my door

It’s no capital crime

Woah yeah

And it’s ’69 woah yeah

Scratch my back, woah yeah

Your momma don’t know where she scratched my leg

Bet she never saw you scratch my back

You’re scared cos you’re so far from home

And you really miss your mother

You’re so scared I’m not gonna do anything

It’s no hanging my door

It’s no capital crime

Whoa yeah

Woo!

Whoa yeah

And I can say my eyes are wider than you

Why don’t you bring her upstairs

She’s the one, she can’t join in too

It’s no hanging my door

It’s no capital crime

Whoa yeah

Scratch my back, whoa yeah

Scratch my back, woha yeah

Your momma don’t know where she scratched my leg

Bet she never saw you scratch my back

Length: 6:01

Like the sun, yeah, I am one
Raising forth when I’m done
So high in the sky
And we’d say what we’d say
And we’d do as we please
And we’d break every rule
On our knees
Like the sun, yeah, I am one
Raising forth when I’m done
What you wait for in the sky, high, up high
And we’d break every rule
And we’d do as we please
And we’d take what we want
On our knees
