Ween – Ambrosia Parsley (Caesar Demos 2001-2003)

Ween – Ambrosia Parsley (Caesar Demos)

I’m a big Ween fan. Everyone that knows me knows that. I even have a boognish decal on the back of my car. Anyway, last night Deaner posted these quebec-era demos on facebook. It’s a treasure trove of unreleased tunes, demos and rough mixes from the summer of 2001 to 2003 when the band was recording the quebec album.

This track, Ambrosia Parsley, is the funkiest one on there, with Gener in full-on Prince mode. (“How much sex can we fit in a day? Ambrosia Parsley.”) I think it would fit in just fine on Prince’s Around The World In A Day album. I’d put it right between Condition Of The Heart and Raspberry Beret. Or maybe I’d remove America and just open up side two with Ambrosia Parsley.

The full mp3 fileset is available to download via torrent over at browntracker (the torrent tracker completely dedicated to Ween): http://www.browntracker.net/details.php?id=1811
Or in 2 zip files at mediafire: part one & part two.
