Locked Out – Zen mix

During the Together Alone sessions at Karekare in 1992-3, playful Zen mixes were created of some songs. The idea was to allow only four tracks from a multi-track recording to be faded up on the mixing desk at a time. “Zen Roxy” on the Nails On My Feet CD single was mixed this way as was the alternative version of “Private Universe” on Afterglow.

Here’s a previously unreleased Zen mix of “Locked Out” which we’ve added to our rarities collection The Kitchen Sink II. The multi-track tape was slowed down so that the backing tracks resembled the tempo Neil had originally intended for the song and then he added a new vocal.
