Origin is the first full length CD released by rock band Evanescence on the Bigwig Enterprises label. Although it is occasionally considered to be Evanescence's first album, lead singer Amy Lee has explicitly said that she doesn't consider it to be an album but rather a "dressed up" demo CD. Released in 2000, Origin was only sold to concert audiences in their hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas and on the Bigwig Enterprises website. Only 2500 discs were printed, but due to the band's increased popularity, significant numbers of pirated copies have been produced and sold. Members of Evanescence have stated that they prefer their fans to copy/download the CD rather than buy it.[1] Image File history File links This image is the cover of an album or single. ...

Outtakes

Outtake Track Zero

Official versions of the CD have a hidden track prior to the start of the CD containing an outtake from the song "Anywhere" that can be accessed in some CD players through the use of the 'previous track' button at the beginning of the first track.


This outtake features David Hodges doing vocal ad-libs into his high range. He then says to the person controlling the recording "You're not saving that,". This is followed by Ben Moody saying "There's a lot of prejudice against the undead," which is a reference to a line in the motion picture My Boyfriend's Back. My Boyfriends Back is a comedy film about a girl whose boyfriend dies, but comes back to life as a zombie because he loved her so much, and the problems this situation causes. ...


Omitted Tracks

Two songs, "Listen to the Rain" (a song Amy Lee wrote for her high school graduation which included her school's choir) and "Demise", were cut from the album. The band originally had "Eternal" as track 11, "Listen to the Rain" as track 12, and "Demise" as track 13. However, it was decided to merge "Eternal" and "Demise" and cut "Listen to the Rain" from the album. "Demise" became the outro of "Eternal". Listen to the Rain is a song written by Amy Lee of Evanescence. ... Amy Hartzler (born Amy Lynn Lee and best known as Amy Lee, December 13, 1981 in Riverside, California) is an American singer-songwriter and classically-trained pianist. ...


Two other songs that didn't make it onto the CD were "Catherine",[2] a song that Amy Lee and Ben Moody wrote together that was played live once or twice at their Little Rock shows, as well as "Spanish". Ben Robert Moody III (born January 22, 1981 in Little Rock, Arkansas, U.S.) is a singer-songwriter and instrumentalist, and is best known as the lead guitarist and co-founder of the rock band Evanescence from 1998 to October 2003. ...
