Awesome. 😎

Wonder if this was planned for a soundtrack or something.

It sounds like it. It sounds almost like a wannabe Bond theme.

I think it was for Triple X.

Anyway it's pretty obvious Joe's was inspired by his true hero Bruce. ;)

Awesome find, I've been wanting to hear that original Streetcore tracklist for 10 years! The song itself isn't a lost classic or anything, but it's great to have.

You're right. I just checked -- Redemption Song mentions that Secret Agent Man was one of two songs recorded for Triple X (All In A Day being the other). But I wonder if they did a second version of SAM during the Streetcore sessions, because AIAD is absent from that original Streetcore tracklist.

I wonder if it was maybe turned down or went unused (or something) and they were adapting the arrangement for Guitar Slinger Man.

Late to the party but thanks, this is cool to hear. I always thought Guitar Slinger Man was just mislabeled on that early Streetcore checklist.

Hopefully this gets us closer to the Streetcore demo tapes. I still replay that album, or at least Coma Girl and Get Down Moses, all the time. Perfect car music.
