And I've just got to say that as much as I love the pristine quality you get with studio recordings, that you absolutely can not beat the serendipitous genius of a perfectly chirping bird giving a cameo in a live performance. It totally puts that last bit of colour into the song's atmosphere. I mean, I *wanted* a studio version with some extra instrumental counterpoint for this particular song, but that bird is as good as anything I could have played.
I LOVE that bird! Even if the track wasn't as good as I think it is (and I think it's GREAT take of the song), I would be tempted to put that version into the album, just to keep that bird.
