Will the artist alone decide to relase his E.S.P. ?

I didn't realise the significance of the title of this thread...but its the title of Jeff's unreleased album. Its also the motto of the legendary ESP-Disk record label.

So whats the status, Jeff? When will it get released?

Here's Jeff original statement :

Ironically, I also had recorded a collection of totally raw home-recorded songs during the past year, totally different songs, an album I had titled The Artist Alone Decides What You Will Hear On His E.S.P. I presented Rough Trade with both albums, the warm and friendly analogue studio Dream-Songs album and the rawer E.S.P. album, and Rough Trade decided to release Dream-Songs. Personally, I thought it would be more interesting to release the rough E.S.P. one first, then the nice Dream-Songs one a few months later or next year.

Clearly, Rough Trade don't share the same philosophy as ESP-Disk...

Did any of the planned ESP songs appear on Dream-Songs? I always thought Reaching, had a more demo feel, although its a polished recording.

Jeff - can you reveal any of the song-titles on the ESP album?

Have any of the planned tracks since appeared on any of the BandCamp compilations that you've contributed to, or elsewhere?

Wonder what will happen to this album now? Will it fade into history unheard? Will tracks off this NEW album be from this album? Maybe a self-release?

I know Daniel johnston has an unreleased album or two...FUN 2? December Blues? I think they're called that...there's something very exciting about unreleased albums, but man, i'd love to hear them all

I'm just looking forward to Jeff's new record, whatever it is.

Having heard a set of unreleased songs tonight thought I would bump this thread about an unreleased album.

I think I remember sending the "Artist Alone Decides..." album out to all the Message Board users as a "fan club gift" at some point?
