The Spring 1993 Soundworks sessions is where two post-Siamese Dream B-sides were recorded. Though it's rarely played live, "Glynis" is one of the Pumpkins' finest non-album tracks, and can only (officially) be found on the 1993 No Alternative compilation. An old Speak & Spell "hello" starts the song, and the soupy solo in the middle is the result of double-tracked guitars fed through a vintage Electro-Harmonix Bassballs pedal. The song is a dedication to former Red Red Meat bassist Glynis Johnson, who passed away from AIDS-related complications in 1992.
