NOTES:
According to John’s 2004 Q&A, most of the songs on Niandra LaDes were written while the Red Hot Chili Peppers were writing and recording Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and recorded on weekends when he would go home from the Mansion. Usually Just A T-Shirt was recorded on the order it appears on the album, about half of it also during the same period Niandra LaDes was recorded, and the other half just before he quit the band. The only song recorded after he left the band was Running Away Into You. The album was recorded on a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder.

Most of the songs later released on Smile From The Streets You Hold were also recorded during these sessions.

Smile From The Streets You Hold

john_frusciante_smile_from_the_streets_you_hold.jpg

RECORDING INFO:
Dates: Between late 1994 and 1996
Players: John Frusciante
Recorded at: John’s Homes, New York City, NY & Los Angeles, CA.
Produced by: John Frusciante

SONGS RECORDED:

  • Enter A Uh
  • I May Again Know John
  • More
  • Smile From The Streets You Hold [Part II]
  • I Can't See Until I See Your Eyes
  • Estress
    Released on the album "Smile From The Streets You Hold"

NOTES:
The record had no “proper” recording sessions as it’s basically an amalgamation of songs from various periods of time - Enter A Uh, I May Again Know John and the second part of Smile From The Streets You Hold were recorded in late 1994 while he was living in New York City. More, I Can’t See Until I See Your Eyes and Estress were recorded sometime in 1996 directly to a cassette in a boombox. The rest of the songs are extras from the Niandra LaDes And Usually Just A T-Shirt recording session, except for A Fall Through The Ground, which was recorded in 1988.

John had the album removed from record stores in 1998 after rejoining the band because he felt uncomfortable with it being available to the public. He is quoted as saying that he released Smile from the Streets You Hold for drug money. Later, in March 2005, he mentioned on his official website in that he changed his mind about the album and now had plans to sell all the copies of the album that he had sitting in a warehouse by selling them directly through the site, but this never happened.
 

There are two different Smile from the Streets You Hold prints available in the US. The songs on the second print are much lower in sound quality and have frequent hiss and hum. It is believed that the original release had the recordings professionally cleaned up, but the second release used John’s unaltered tapes by mistake.

WORKING TITLES:

Estrus = Estress

Third Album Sessions

RECORDING INFO:
Dates: June-July 1997
Players: John Frusciante, Norwood Fisher, Chris Warren
Recorded at: Jimmy Boyle’s Studio, Los Angeles, CA.
Produced by: Unknown
Engineered by: Unknown

SONGS RECORDED:

  • Circles Of You
  • Dust Bin
  • Elemental
  • What It Tastes Like
  • Water Fall Through

NOTES:
John mentioned this session on the two magazine interviews he gave that year:

Frusciante is planning to record and release with a band tentatively featuring close friends Chris Warren of Thelonius Monster and Fishbone's Norwood Fisher (the duo that made up John's supporting band on the recent Nuttstalk '97 tour) – Bikini, August 1997

The recent release of Smile, new sessions in producer Jimmy Boyle’s L.A. studio, an interest in releasing tapes of 3 Amoebas (his improve trio with Flea and Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins) and his participation in this summer’s Nuttsalk tour with members of P-Funk and Fishbone represent Frusciante’s first forays back into the land of the living – Guitar Player, November 1997

Beside those quotes, this session has never been mentioned again and there’s no info at all about what songs have been recorded. It’s pretty safe to assume the (fan-titled) songs played during the Nuttstalk tour were recorded.

    Released on “The Brown Bunny” OST.  We’re only certain Leave All The Days Behind was recorded during these sessions but it’s highly probable the rest of the songs were too. John songs were not featured on the movie, but rather served as an inspiration during the filming sessions, which mostly happened in 2002.

NOTES:
Much like Shadows Collide With People in that this is more a collection of songs from a particular timeframe than the result of a proper recording session. Although John has mentioned several times he had already recorded about two CDs worth of material before getting to the actual album sessions (November 1999 to April 2000), he ended up using some of those early recordings on the final album and b-sides. Due to lack of clarity on which songs were exactly recorded at those periods and due to the fact every song listed here was recorded at the same home studio using the same equipment, this section contains every song that we know of from 1999 to the album release.

Most of the tracks were recorded a simple 4-track (except for some songs on the last months of the sessions that were recorded to a Yamaha 8-track) while he was living in a rented house in the Silverlake village in Los Angeles. Guitars used for the recording were an acoustic Martin guitar, borrowed from Anthony Kiedis, a 1966 Fender Mustang and a 1961 Gibson SG. All of his guitars were on the road or in storage while the Chili Peppers were on tour. Additionally, a Korg M1 keyboard and a Akai MPC3000 drum machine were used. The songs intended for commercial release were transfered onto a 2" analog tape to be mixed on a conventional 24-track console in a professional studio. Only a few edits, overdubs and vocal harmonies were done during this process.

Demos with Josh Klinghoffer

RECORDING INFO:
Dates: Around December 2000
Players: John Frusciante, Josh Klinghoffer
Recorded at: Jimmy Boyle’s Studio, Los Angeles, CA.
Produced by: ?
Engineered by: ?

NOTES:

John mentioned recording some songs at Jimmy Boyle’s studio in two magazine interviews released in March 2001. In an interview with Guitar & Bass in mid-December 2000, he said:

A few days ago, we recorded two new songs with my other friend, Josh, on drums, and the sound we got was fabulous. We still haven't recorded the overdubs, but just the guitar and drum tracks together sound incredibly good.

We believe they kept going to the studio after that two-song session, as mentioned in the Dutch version of the same magazine:

I'm working for the Chili Peppers in the first place but when there's time left – so when Anthony is not in town or Flea's spending time with his daughter on the weekends – then I can go to the studio with Josh and work on new songs.

It’s unknown which and how many songs were recorded as both quotes are the only mention John has made of the sessions.

    Released as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of “Shadows Collide With People”.

NOTES:
Songwriting process started as early as January 2001, John premiered some of these songs on his solo acoustic tour that year. The album was originally conceived as collaboration between John & Josh and planned to be issued under a band name. Josh wrote the drum parts and was supposed to record them for the album, but was too nervous at the recording sessions, so Chad Smith did them at the last minute (you can still hear him drumming on the album demos).

John recorded most of the guitar parts with his '62 Fender Stratocaster and '66 Telecaster, but also used a 60's Gibson SG Custom for overdubs and his 50's Martin for acoustic parts. Production was finished in late April 2003, but it took 10 months for the album to release, considered his most expensive album to date costing a total of around $150.000.

NOTES:
After learning how to use various synths and drum machines in hotel rooms and buses for about a year during the Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium tour, he started recording the songs as soon as he got home while he wasn't working on The Empyrean. This music was made strictly to learn, with no intention of it being released.

The albums were recorded live onto a Tascam CD burner through a 16-channel Mackie mixer with no overdubs. Instruments used during the sessions were a R8, a 303, a 606, a 808, a 101, a 202, an ARP 2500 and an EMT 250 reverb.

NOTES:
John mentioned on various occasions while doing interviews for the album that they wrote 17 songs during this period but it’s uncertain in the remaining 4 songs were recorded during the sessions. It’s likely one of those songs is Scratch, as it was originally written for this album before being reworked and recorded during the Enclosure sessions. The album was recorded on a total of two months on and off between December 2006 and March 2008, mainly because of Chili Peppers tours.

NOTES:
It’s believed that many, many more songs were recorded during this period in John’s main studio during various stages of its development, as a learning process while he was working to expand his knowledge of engineering electronic music that he decided to pursue after he left the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez mentioned in interviews with El Patas in August 2011, Rolling Stone in March 2012 and Musikexpress in April 2012 that John had made around 300-400 recordings during this period, which at the time he had no intentions to release whatsoever.

"Poem"

john_frusciante_poem.jpg

RECORDING INFO:
Dates: July 2017
Players: John Frusciante
Recorded at: John’s Home Studio – Los Angeles, CA
Produced by: John Frusciante

NOTES:
This song was uploaded to John’s Soundcloud and Bandcamp accounts on July 10, 2017 with no info or description whatsoever. We believe it was inspired by composer and pioneer in the musique concrète genre of electronic music Pierre Henry and released as a tribute to him, as he passed away a few days before the song was released.
