Yesterday I was watching the extras on the Growing Up Live DVD and there's a beautiful acoustic version of More than this on the Tony Levin's view section. I want to know where does that version come from. Is there any other stripped down version of any of the songs from the Up album available anywhere???

The version of "More Than This" you mention Pepper is the "Elbow"-mix of the song, which can be found on the single-cd of the song. On this single-cd there is also another complete different version of "More Than This" called "Polyphonic Spree"-mix, that includes a children choir in the background and also an orchestral arrangement - the song has also got a touch of "country"-music - ALL great versions.
Mixes of "Growing Up" can be found on the single-cd and DVD-single of the song: ("Trent Reznor"-mix, "Tricky"-mix, "Tom Lord-Alge"-video mix - the version we got on the album "UP" is actually the "Steve Osbourne"-mix, who also had done mixes of "The Tower That Ate People" for the "Red Planet"-Soundtrack with Val Kilmer.
A mix of "Sky Blue" is the "Martyn Bennett"-mix on the "More Than This"-DVD-single.
Mixes of "Darkness" can be heard on the thread "Opening and closing. . ." by MAK in the USA on the Video/DVD topic of this forum.

Pepper - there is more:
The original version of "I Grieve" on the "City of Angels"-soundtrack with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan.
An full instrumental version of "Signal To Noise" featuring guitars by David Rhodes on the "Gangs of New York"-soundtrack with Leo DiCaprio.
"Single edit"-versions (shorter and well done) of "More Than This", "Growing Up", "The Barry Williams Show".
There are also so-called "Engelspost"-mixes of "Darkness" and "The Rhythm of the Heat".
The vocal-part by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on the "UP"-album was taken from the "VH 1-Honours"-performance from 1996 (Nusrat died in 1997 - rest in peace, Nusrat). There is also a version of "Signal to Noise" with Youssou N`Dour from Paris 1998 (Amnesty-gig), a version together with Master Kong Nay from "Womad 2007" in England ("Warm Up-tour"). Peter also performed "Noise" together with Iarla O`Lionaird on his comeback-show at "WOMAD-USA" in Seattle 2001.

i prefer the elbow mix over the original. this "quiet version" seems to capture the mood of the song much better. not to mention a perfect accompaniment to tony's tour slideshow.
i also interested to hear elbow music. any suggestions?

All of Elbows albums are good
«cast of thousands» was my first and it hooked me
«leader of the free world» also brillent
but thier last cd I think is the best
«The seldom see kid»
thier firts cd «asleep in the back» is very strong
newborn slays me everytime
elbow is supporting cold play on many of their tour dates this spring and summer
elbow is playing a festival in montreal in aug. and have a few headline dates at small clubs
ceck em oot
