I hafta say this rearranged version of the Zombie's cherished pop hit, "She's Not There," rivals the original. No jokin'!!! It's so fucking heavy, y'all!
Obviously, this arrangement is prolly based on the well known Vanilla Fudgeversion, but I like the Doves better. They certainly do know how to build tension with that syncopated hook; more so than the Fudge, who seem to turn their version into a tryppy groover, man.
This was unearthed and comped on the Purple Heart Surgery series, a four volume (mostly) acetate only set. Most likely this was strictly a demo only acetate, there'd be only a small number cut as needed, and never issued on record. There are thousands of acetate demos like this one floating around. Usually, if not for a band sorting out their future release, acetates were made for song publishers/writers to shop around or place their songs with singers/bands who were needing outside material.
As far as I know this English group was studio only with no proper records issued. However, there are two other Doves tracks found on another comp, Syde Tryps V.5, "I'll Cry If You Make Me," a proper beat/pop track, and "Smokeytime Springtime" which is decidedly more lysergic. Neither can compete with their "She's Not There" tho'...godamn.
