General Information

Origin was released on November 4th, 2000, in Little Rock, Arkansas. Many different versions of Origin exist, but there’s only one true track listing. Only 2500 copies of the original were made. Bigwig Enterprises stopped selling Origin in early February 2003 (a day or two before the Daredevil Soundtrack album was released) and removed it from their catalogue.[1] Real and fake copies are bought on EBay for upwards of $300. Amy Lee does not consider this an album, but rather a collection of demos that they "dressed up" to send to different major labels.

The album contains early versions of songs found on Fallen: My Immortal, Imaginary, Whisper.

The original release contained a hidden track, which is located before the first track. In order to hear it, you have to rewind (while hearing what you are rewinding) the first song and reach -0:24 approximately (yes, minus). It is an outtake of the end of the bridge of Anywhere, featuring Amy Lee and David Hodges singing and apparently Ben Moody says a few words at the end of it, just before Origin begins.

The frontal cover was created by Rocky Gray.

The end of the album was originally supposed to include the song Listen To The Rain between the songs Eternal and Demise. Pre-releases of the album included this song, but the finished product did not include the song (Listen to pre-release ending).

Images

The following images are original concept art from Bigwig Enterprises' production team (not scans). The disc is a scan, but only because original vector-based artwork doesn't begin to resemble the actual disc. These are as accurate as images of this disc can get. They are gently watermarked to discourage bootlegging.

The insert is a tri-folded demigloss, light-medium weight paper with one side of color images and the reverse side of grayscale. The tray insert is single-sided. The piece of plastic that the disc sits in is opaque. In the front of the front insert can be noticed a latin text: consepulti enim sum us eum illo per baptismum in mortem ut quomodo surrexit Christus a mortuis per gloriam Patris ita et nos in novitate vitae ambulemus (in fact we are buried in death with him in that place by means of baptism so that as Christ rose from death by glory as the Father, and we walk in novelty of life).

—note that using the cue sheet to burn a copy of the disc will create a silent gap where the hidden track belongs, but will not actually have the hidden track.

Fake "Re-Release"

Fake Release

In 2003, a "re-release" of Origin came out supposedly under the label 'Epic' although was in fact a fake. It contained most of the tracks from the real Origin, however with some tracks, different versions were used. In the case of Whisper and My Immortal, the Fallen versions were used.

The audio portion of the CD was very poorly produced, and in most cases, the songs were either corrupted or of low quality (as if downloaded as an MP3 and then burned on the CD). This bootleg has very elaborate and professional looking artwork, with a silk screened, factory pressed CD and a fold out booklet with a small biography (which mostly rambles on about the 'Christian band' controversy).

The CD contained 'Bonus Tracks' such as Missing (which is very corrupted and of extremely low quality), the Nirvana cover 'Heart-Shaped Box', and a [rather bad] trance remix of Bring Me To Life.

The CD itself has a red silkscreen with black bird design with the word "sorry" on it. The jewel case has a gothic red design with a speckled face on the back along with the track listing. The inside tray artwork has an image of the band (the one from the booklet in Fallen). The cover has a skull design that is similar to the actual album released by the band. The most noticeable difference is the Evanescence Logo, which is pointy and unlike any design officially released by the band.

On the back artwork the fine print/credits are actually copied from the back of Fallen.

Modern Bootlegs

Authentic ("All rights") and Fake ("All right")

Recently, bootlegs are now becoming harder and harder to distinguish from the real thing. The authentic artwork, distinctive CD numbers and tracklisting—right down to the hidden outtake track—are all present and in (apparently) extremely good quality. There is some speculation that someone from Bigwig Enterprises is producing these items because of their immaculate authenticity, but this cannot be verified. Either way, these bootlegs are saturating the online auction market and making it nearly impossible to acquire a real copy of the album. They usually sell for around $40-$60 on eBay. The only real way to tell is that the fakes will have a brownish hue to the album art where real copies are pure black.
