“The second installment of Tiles’ 20th Anniversary celebration, “Off the Floor 02” continues with more live-in-the-studio performances of staples from the band’s live sets. Taken from the same sessions as 2012’s “Off the Floor 01,” the track list draws from each of the band’s five studio albums and gives the listener more than carbon copies of the studio versions with a healthy dose of improvisation, a bit of re-imagining and even a little new music in the form of a bass & drums interlude.
For this 2-disc Limited Edition version, Tiles dug into their archives and dusted off a few tunes from their appearance at the 2005 Rites of Spring Festival. These songs are not reprised on either “Off the Floor” disc – and feature the only recorded full performance of the epic “Window Dressing.” Also included are two bonus videos from the “Off the Floor” sessions.
“Off the Floor 02″ provides a fresh look at some old songs, adds a few new things, and gives Tiles fans something to tide them over until the next studio release appears in 2015…
All music is mixed by Terry Brown (Rush) and the CD features artwork by Hugh Syme.”
