Thread: "Not Kylie Minogue Sessions"

    Default "Not Kylie Minogue Sessions"

    I have a question regarding the so-called 'Not Kylie Minogue' sessions between Intimate & Live and Light years, when Kylie did acoustic songs with Steve Anderson: is it really true that it was supposed to be released as an EP? (that included Stay this way, Floating, Miles, You're the one, Free etc.) What songs were written during these sessions (Ocean blue, Paper dolls, Good life, Butterfly demo?)
    Can someone in the know confirm or clarify the issue?
    I am quite intrigued.

    I remember Kane posting years ago that Never Spoken and Harmony could have belonged to these sessions as well. But they sound like Fever demos.

    Those songs listed from 1997 were done for IP.

    Steve mentioned Never spoken & Harmony were recorded in Real World studios, although he did not mention when:

    I understand that Stay this way, You're the one, Free etc. were written during IP sessions, however I was referring to this information:

    - Paper Dolls
    - Ocean Blue
    - Good Life

    the title was a play on the fact the 2 deConstruction albums had been called Kylie Minogue.
    I am sure i read this onhere from either Tom or Headless Postman here years ago...

    There's 'The Real Thing' of course which was canned but which had 3 or 4 mixes, which might have been mentioned, but there's also the 'album' "Not Kylie Minogue" which some songs were written for used during Light Years, three perfectly lovely acoustic numbers, 'Paper Dolls', 'Ocean Blue' and 'The Good Life'

    Been yonks since I've heard of this, but it was rumored

    So many projects just shelved and soooooooooo many songs left unheard. It genuinely makes me annoyed as we the fans would get so much joy hearing them.

    Definitely. I think Kylie is aware how much core fans are willing to hear, for example the Jazz sessions, Scissor Sisters sessions, IP material, hidden vaults of Fever & Body language etc.

    As for 'Not Kylie Minogue' acoustic sessions, by doing 'the detective work' I was able to gather that were to include (tentatively):

    Demos recorded shortly after the Intimate and Live tour:
    Ocean blue
    Paper dolls
    Good life
    Bittersweet goodbye
    Never spoken
    Harmony
    Butterfly (Original Demo)
    So now goodbye
    Cover me with kisses
    Feels so good

    Acoustic IP demos co-written with Steve:
    Stay this way
    Free
    Floating
    Miles (Blues)
    You're the one (Final Demo)

    and some of the acoustic songs from the bunch Kylie co-wrote with Steve and Carl Mann:

    Sunday Morning Cadillac
    Are You the One?
    Now That I've Found You
    Same Place, Same Time
    Can You Forgive Me?
    Love Song
    Sleep on It

    So that would indeed make an album worth of 'acoustic' material.

    Iím surprised none of the Steve and Carl tracks evolved into anything on the album. Sounds like she abandoned them all at the demo stages, figuring out they must have been pants!

    As I understood it, it was implied that they were not very good.

    Hence why they were abandoned at the demo stages and didnít evolve into anything.

    There was also a rumour that Sunday Morning Cardilac was originally going to be the Japanese bonus track to Light Years but donít know if thatís true.
