Ill always think of In 3-D as Als first album. Not only was it the first one I listened to, but the debut comes across more like a collection of early works than an actually album. Most of the songs were already fairly old:
Gotta Boogie: Different version on Placebo EP (1981)
Happy Birthday: Different version on Placebo EP (1981)
Stop Draggin' My Car Around: Performed live as early as 1981.
My Bologna: Different version released as single back in 1979.
Another One Rides the Bus: Same version as the 1981 single, performed live even earlier.
Mr. Frump in the Iron Lung: Different version on Placebo EP (1981), original demo is from 1977!
Several other songs have earlier demos too, I'm just not that familiar with the demos and when they were released.
