An Obsession with State of Love and Trust

It's days like this that I love having the Red Mosquito users as a resource.  RM user, spived, really ... really ... REALLY loves State of Love and Trust.  I didn't want one man's obsession with a track to go unrewarded.  This post obviously took all day to create, and I think it's a good read for anyone who, like me, has listened through O'Brien's remixes and then hit repeat a few times when they got to this track.

I like SOLAT so much. My compilation of info in this one:

SOLAT was written to Singles film, after PJ saw the movie. Right?

Cassette to Cameron Crowe
Between 1991 March 27 and April 11 on Seattle WA, London Bridge Studios.
"On April 11, 1991, Jeff gave a cassette of potential Singles Soundtrack songs, among them 'Breath' and 'State Of Love And Trust,' to Cameron Crowe."

After the cassette was given
The Ten Redux version is with Dave K. on drums.
Previously Unreleased Out Take From TEN. Rough Mix.
1991 April 21 Seattle WA, London Bridge Studios.

Then, SOLAT born on March-April 1991, correct?

Jeff Ament Quotes:
"The version of SOLAT with Dave Krusen on drums is so much better than what ended up being released."
"He really plays that song in the spirit it was written in. It's has a much trashier, Crazy Horse feel to it. It's awesome."

Dave Krusen's last show with PJ (setlist unknown)
05/25/91 - RKCNDY: Seattle, WA
notes: Filming for Singles is complete and PJ plays at this "wrap party" with many cast members in attendance.

Maybe SOLAT was played here for first time, we never know.

June 1991 - Ridge Farm Studios - Dorking, England
Notes: This session was held to mix the tracks recorded in March and April 1991 and while doing so, a few overdubs were added to a couple of songs.

So Jeff Ament didn't like 1991 Ten. Is it Tim Palmer fault? Or Rick Parashar fault?

Matt Chamberlain's first show with PJ
07/04/91 - RKCNDY: Seattle, WA
notes: This show marks the band's return from remixing in London.

07/12/91 - JC Dobbs: Philadelphia, PA
notes: 'State of Love and Trust' and 'Oceans' are played live for the first (documented) time. Matt Chamberlain on drums.

07/17/91 - Wetlands Preserve: New York, NY
set: Wash, Once, Even Flow, Alive, State of Love and Trust, Black, Why Go, Garden, Porch, Alone, Breath
notes: Matt Chamberlain on drums. Relaxed, fun performance. 'State of Love and Trust' is a bit different version.

Matt Chamberlain still playing. Alive video.
08/03/91 - RKCNDY: Seattle, WA

TEN's party
08/19/91 - RKCNDY: Seattle, WA
notes: Record release party. Ad.

When was Matt Chamberlain last show? RKCNDY?
Who assisted to the party Matt Chamberlain or Dave A?

Dave Abbruzzese's first concert drumming with PJ
08/23/91 - Mural Amphitheater: Seattle, WA
set: Once, State of Love and Trust, Even Flow, (Outshined)/Garden, Alive, Black, Deep, Why Go, Porch, Breath
notes: This free, outdoor show was the last show of the summer '91 Sounds of Seattle concert series (later called "Pain in the Grass").

Dave Abbruzzese on drums, Singles soundtrack version.
January 1992 - London Bridge Studios - Seattle, WA
Notes: This session lasted a day and a half. 'Breath' and 'State Of Love And Trust' were re-recorded for the Singles Soundtrack.

Version we all love.

On 1999, Singles version appears on Movie Music The Definitive Performances.

rearviewmirror (Greatest Hits 1991–2003)
Released November 16, 2004

I have a doubt about the RVM version, is it the same of Singles version? I think they remix it (by Brendan?).

"Don't forget that the best cure for a bad mix is a great song!"
