The "Play With Your Head" Outtakes

      by Scott Gage



In celebration of a new year of ilvmv, we are happy to share a new (old) album, featuring many previously unreleased and rarely heard songs.

In 2003, Mike Viola floated a number of outtakes from the "Play With Your Head" sessions to his fans, many which were compiled into the a 14-track "bootleg" release and distributed on an early fan website.   Over time, many of those tracks were lost and the seven unreleased tracks on the widely distributed "Play With Your Outtakes" are all that remained.  Here, with the help of Mike Viola, is the complete compilation as it was originally intended..

Included in the collection are unreleased songs that have become MV standards such as Something Special and Motel Mood, alongside soon to be classics Good Clean Fun and Horndog.  Also included is the beautiful ballad, Everything's Different - originally written and recorded by Mike as a wedding gift to his trombone player, Dan Levine
