With the lyric on "Take The Box" ..."Frank's in there, I don't care, Just take it.. Take the box" ..Was Amy talking about Frank Sinatra or "Frank" as in her album Frank ? ? ??

She mentions in an interview Frank refers both to Sinatra and the adjective itself. She wanted a strong and appeal word for her debut album and "frank" seemed to be the perfect choice. As regards the lyrics you mention, I believe she meant a Frank Sinatra album is inside the box, but she doesn't care about it.

Cheers, As we all know the song was written about her boyfriend at the time, could it be that the "Frank" demo was in the box but she didn't care. . if he heard it ? .."Frank's in there, I don't care, Just take it.. Take the box"

Funny I'm literally listening to this as I read your message

 

 

That lyric refers to an album of Frank Sinatra.

To cut a long story short the demo found earlier is an acoustic set recorded before frank's release & a month before Amy's 20th birthday, "Best Friends" stands out in the set by a mile!!! The CD was found in a box earlier & needless to say I took the box!! ...."Take the box, just take it.. Take the box"  No idea what is was recorded for, press maybe ? Handful of people in the room, the recording is clear as a bell.

Cheers, where did the pic of the Island Records promo surface from ? It's a rare enough item alright, don't want to de-value it by uploading the entire set online but will likely include "Best Friends" as a track on a mix we are currently putting together for a sept 14th release via soundcloud... .

The copy of the Whitfield Island cover that I posted was listed on a website back in 2013 called Iconic Culture that sold collector music.

Here's another one that sold on ebay in November 2007, that also shows the CD ...

Looking forward to hearing "Best Friends" as a track of your new upcomming Amy Birthday mini-mix :)

Is the mix that you put online a few years ago still up? Would love to have a listen

Thanx a lot@Gordon!!! I'm confused though 😳 Are these from the cd apart from Best Friends? I didn't think you'd upload it tbh but I've to apologise for my cynical thinking! Looking forward to September then...

It would be rude not to share "Best Friends".. .An acoustic of it surfaced as a B-SIDE during the "Back to Black" era & sounds like a later recording. This 2003 version on the promo is flawless, Amy sounds like she means every word as she sings it!

 Thanks for the link!

 

Just wondering if there were any other Amy goodies found when you "Took the Box", it would be nice to know if there is anything else out there that we are unaware of that she did back in those early years
