Apparently there's about 3 different versions of If I Were You... knocking about. I believe the one destined for the singles club was a duet with a girl called Harry (she made an appearance as the mentor on the Faking It where they taught the choir girl how to, ahem, Rawk)

I think this is all we'll get.

In case you didn't know, they came from a master that was sold on eBay from the studio that Ginger was using at the time - it's all highly legally dubious as to who actually owns them.

The guy who won them (not that cheaply either) did so to stop them either being stuck on cd's and sold off or the tapes wiped. He said he'd make them available for free download - and did just that.

Harry had an album out herself, never heard it hough.
She originally got noticed as 'Dirty Harry', which was a band as opposed to a person - like Blondie. They were very much a ROCK band, and got a fair amount of press in Kerrang! for a while, but went though various lineup changes and Harry effectively went solo and released a 'pop' album - which sunk like a stone... Her more recent demos sound a lot more rocky, although she has also contributed to Tommy Lee's new solo album - which is also basically a pop album. :?

That version also features Dregen of Backyard Babies on guitar. I suspect if it had eventually appeared on the singles club it would have been a re-recorded version though.

Ah, s'not me. Yer need to thank Andy B for doing the hosting.

There's other stuff Ginger related on his site :

Various interviews

Recent VDC 6music interview

I'm sure if he's on here, he'll let you know of other stuff he's got?
