Sign In Sign Up. Feb 18, - Taken by Kurt R. Background I was recently able to get a hold of information about the Nutcrackers bootlegs. The following is the information I was able to gather about their background and the origination of the recordings. While the album went on to sell in excess of 2 million copies, the band was not always happy while working with Rubin. It has been reported that Rubin was slightly obsessive-compulsive, spending weeks tweeking the drum kit alone.
The band, being the work horses they have always been, preferred to show up and work right away. Volume 1 View All Images Fast forward to sometime in A collector had a chance encounter with someone who, through some unknown capacity but allegedly a disgruntled custodianhad obtained 2 cassette tapes of the in-studio time the band spent rehearsing. The time captured on these tapes was spent mostly chatting and joking around with various 'guests'.
The tapes did also contain a good deal of adhoc jamming and song rehearsals. It seems more likely that the tapes are from the New York sessions as more was supposedly recorded there than in Los Angeles, where the recording process went much more smoothly.
The majority of the material on the tapes is mostly dead air and conversation between the band Muskuły - Trzy Majtki - 40 Years Old, but there were Shes my babe - AC/DC - Nutcrackers Volume 1 nice jam sessions recorded as well as warm up versions of Hail Caesar as released on Nutcrackers Vol 2 and a few other tracks.
Unfortunately, there are no unreleased songs on these tapes; all of the material is similar to Shes my babe - AC/DC - Nutcrackers Volume 1 which became the Ballbreaker album, or are simple jam sessions with the band making up songs as they go i. She's My Babe from Volume 1. There is also supposedly a short snippet at the end of the Uncovered Complete bootleg The Night Is Young And Youre So Beautiful - Swing And Sway With Sammy Kaye* - Midnight Serenade, but this has not been confirmed.
