IIV Discography
 
 
COLLECTION VERSION 3.1:

This brand new section will offer an ongoing series of downloadable tracks that were considered for the Evolution 3.0 disc, but for various reasons were not included. The biggest reason that some songs were left out was simply because only 80 minutes of music will fit on a CD.

Eventually, all of these songs will be compiled onto an extremely limited edition disc that will be available exclusively through the IIV site.

Daddy
One of Joe Vizvary's concepts for The Spell was to have short instrumental interludes or transition pieces between the actual songs. Dale heard this piece, written for a woodwind and string ensemble, on a tape of song ideas and wrote lyrics for it, becoming Like A Fool.  The recording was started at Saved By Technology and finished at Phase One Studios. This was intended as an introduction to Like A Fool, but as we worked on the mix engineer Randy Staub added more and more effects  to each mix and the piece mutated, eventually becoming the industrial sounding One Hand Cleanses the Other (Where's Kenny?), which was released on the Spell and Chronology. The producers of The Spell chose not to include Fool's Intro on the album.

Everytime
(SBT Mix)
The original tracks for Everytime (and Say Goodbye) were recorded at Phase One Studios in March 1987. When we went to Jim Burgess' Saved By Technology (at that time a computer-based recording studio as well as a computer and music technology store) later that month to record Like A Fool and Alone, more keyboard and guitar parts were added to Everytime. This SBT version was mixed by engineer Randy Staub, whom we had known since his days as soundman for Derrick and Ed's old band, The Instructions.
Welcome to Sorrow
This recording comes from our second demo sessions at Bullfrog Studios in September 1981, just weeks before IIV's first live performance at Elektra–The Fashion Dance. When the band first formed, one of our goals was to write music–songs, if that's what they became–that defined or represented moods and emotions through sounds as well as lyrics. Welcome to Sorrow developed out of the idea of sorrow as a physical place and how it would be to arrive there. Welcome to Sorrow was intended to be on IIV's first EP recorded at Water Street in October 1981, but we ran out of time and the song was not recorded at those sessions nor any others. The song was part of IIV's live show until the fall of 1983, usually the second song of the set segueing from the end of Travel.
Masks
(PNE Version)
This demo of Masks was recorded at a mobile studio set up at the Pacific Nation Exhibition in August 1982. That year the PNE had a band come in each day of the fair to record a song. The studio and control room each had a glass wall so fair-goers could watch the recording process. Glen, Don, and Dale all had to work so they weren't able to get to the session until later in the day. This version of Masks is all-electronic with Gary, Joe and Kevin all layering synth and electronic percussion parts. As well, this is one of the few songs where Gary contributes backing vocals!
Call it Love
(Demo Version)
We debuted Call it Love in December 1983 on the Bryan Adams Cuts Like a Knife tour and at our Commodore Ballroom show later that month. This demo was recorded that December, along with demos of Holiday, Calling My Name and Save It. This was what our live version of Call It Love sounded like until September 1984 when we reworked the song into the version released on Rituals and In The House.

This was what our live version of Call It Love sounded like until September 1984 when we reworked the song into the version released on Rituals and In The House.
Alone
The bed tracks for this version of Alone were recorded during the same sessions as Like a Fool on The Spell, at Saved By Technology in March 1987. John Switzer and Joe Vizvary produced and Randy Staub engineered. Jim Burgess of SBT ran the Macintosh computer and helped program synths. Vocals, drums and guitar overdubs were done at Phase One Studios.
Foreign Affairs
Foreign Affairs is one of the earliest Images In Vogue songs, written by Don Gordon with help from Gary Smith, Kevin Crompton and Joe Vizvary. This recording is from IIV's second session at Bullfrog Studios in September 1981, with original singer Gary J. A later version was recorded at Water Street Studios in October 1981 to which Dale's vocals were added in February 1982, but we've always prefered this recording. Foreign Affairs was performed live until early 1983.
Don't Push

Don't Push was written during the transition period while Glen and Ed were still with Images In Vogue, but Tim Welch was rehearsing new material with the band. This recording was done at Martin Damsel's Studio in North York in July 1986, along with a demo of So Careful, and was Tim's first recording with IIV.

As a result of this demo, IIV signed with Anthem Records in September 1986. Don't Push was rarely performed live by IIV and was not worked on at any subsequent recording sessions.

Baby
Recorded at Phase One Studios in December 1986 during the same sessions as What If? from The Spell and Evolution, and Piece of Your Heart from Chronology, produced by Joe and Engineered by Randy Staub. This was one of the first songs written after Tim Welch joined IIV and was performed live during 1986-87 as What Lovers Do. The lyrics were never completed and only this original demo was done.
Tear it Down

Tear It Down was recorded in December 1982 at Mushroom, at the same sessions as Lust For Love. It was intended to be the B-side, along with Grapevine, of our independent release of Lust For Love. Both Tear It down and Lust For Love were recorded live to 40 tracks with our live stage set-up and monitors, all miked as well as direct.

Tear It Down was performed live until 1984 and we always thought it was strong enough to be released, so it was a difficult decison to not include it on the new CD.

Wolf Kill
(PNE Version)
Recorded in March 1984 at the same sessions as Peculiar, Everything About You, The Swim, and Promised Land. It was an attempt at writing in the studio, but Dale was unable to develop something for it in the limited time we had. The song was called Wolf Kill because wolves were being culled in BC at that time to reduce the wolf population. We recorded over Wolf Kill in October 1984 because we didn't have a budget for new tape. The song we recorded over it is Call It Love. On the Evolution CD you will hear the last chords of Wolf Kill at the end (or is it the beginning??? — that's a puzzle for you) of Evol Ti Llac.
