Subtitled Spare Tracks and Lost Demos, this 20-track collection leaves all but hardcore fans, and those without access to a computer, in the dark about anything more than the titles of the tunes, as Parker put the rest of the notes up on his own website www.punkhart.com/gparker. With the exception of the Holland-Dozier-Holland opener "There's a Ghost in My House," the rest of the disc consists of quirky Parker originals like "Corporate Rock," "Still Got My Faith," "Dead to the World," "Tortured Soul," and "I Just Can't Capture Her Imagination," heard here in two different versions. Other highlights include "Durban Poison," "Waiting for the Next World," "Natalie," and "Guillotine of Guadeloupe," making this a rarities package that will appeal to Parker's cult following.
