The Smashing Pumpkins March 15-16 1994 sessions at Gravity Studios was booked midway through the Siamese Dream tour to record demos for Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. All tracks in these sessions were instrumental, with exception of "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", which included scratch vocals. Many were cut and pasted into what became "Pastichio Medley", including "Blast", "Jackboot", "Lucky Lad", "So So Pretty", "Disconnected", "Weeping Willowly" and "With Longing". Most of the tracks also feature extremely early working titles, some simply titled as their chord progression. While a number of the Gravity Session recordings were featured on 2013 The Aeroplane Flies High box set, an even greater number remain unreleased and can be found on bootlegs.
