Product Description

Product Description

SPARKLEHORSE Distorted Ghost EP (2000 UK 6-track CD EP includes live versions of Gasoline Horseys and Happy Pig housed in a digipak picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

A six-track EP that's, presumably, meant to be the holdover until the next album proper, Distorted Ghost is a brief foray into the twisted country world of Mark Linkous's Sparklehorse. Featuring two new, rocking versions of "Happy Man" (the original is on their now-classic Good Morning Spider) and four other previously unreleased tracks, this EP is sure to appeal mostly to fans of the band. Newcomers, however, would only find themselves wanting more after this brief introduction to one of alt. country's most innovative and genre-bending acts. --Robert Burrow

I think the idea behind this release was to give us something to wet our taste buds while we wait for the new album.
This EP mixes some of their older stuff, with the newer stuff. 'Happy Man' is the old classic, although I much prefer the original version. I assume from the Amazon review that 'Happy Place' is yet another version of this.
The EP includes two live tracks, and some newer sounding material, such as 'My Yoke is Heavy'. It sounds a little bit more upbeat than usual, and could be a sign of things to come. Or lets hope it is anyway...

If anything, the reason for any Sparklehorse fan to go out and buy this EP is for the appearance of Happy Man before Mark Linkous intentionally destroyed the song on Good Morning Spider. The song starts off teasing the listener with the fuzz that appears on Good Morning Spider, along with a splash of Chaos of The Galaxy before promptly turning into what is Sparklehorse's best standard rock song. However, what appears here is a different version/mix from the one that appears on Good Morning Spider, and, typically, not as good (the fantastic guitar solo has been mixed out), but nevertheless it's good to finally have this song. The other tracks, save for My Yoke Is Heavy, are not essential, but really I bought this for track 1 alone.

Anyone who has followed Sparklehorse's career from the beginning will love this CD ( described as an EP, but more a short LP at a bargain price on Amazon).
Great stuff from Mark - buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars took my breath away 12 Dec. 2000
By "tekkaman" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i'd never heard Sparklehorse before i picked this up. i hadn't so much as seen anything about them aside from Mark in a Vox Amplifier ad. i got this because it was the cheapest Sparklehorse thing the store had. when i first listened to it, 'Happy Man' completely and totally blew me away; it is easily one of the best songs that i've ever heard, and the raw live version is even better. the other songs are just as good, though a little slower ... the slower songs are a good balance with the spacy rockingness of 'Happy Man'. the other Sparklehorse albums will be in my posession shortly.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 stars? Blasphemy! 26 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First of all, it borders on the absurd to compare this to "Good Morning Spider", which is such a brilliant album that just about anything will pale in comparison to it. And second of all, this is a much better EP than James from SoCal might have you think. Thing is, these aren't really "new" songs, most of them have been around in one form or another for awhile now, existing mostly as b-sides. "Waiting For Nothing", a track that dates back to the "Vivadixie.." era, is utterly sublime and a favorite of many of the Sparklehorse fans I know. "My Yoke Is Heavy" is another Daniel Johnston cover that gleefully oscillates between quite balladry and crashing guitar rock. And I happen to love the live version of "Gasoline Horseys" here, it's an interesting departure from the LP cut which incorporates some wonderful sound samples. Don't be deterred, if you like Mark's other work, you'll more likely than not enjoy this EP immensely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for fans 14 July 2006
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
2 1/2

More like a fan ep then one for the casual listener, this dubious short length nonetheless can still introduce those irresistable qualities prevelent in this songwriter's quirky depression. Featuring two editions of their catchy, but rockin as hell "happy man" only proceed if you have checked out other full lenghts of the fractured pop rock.
