“The Days Of Old” is a single from Paris‘ second album Sleeping With The Enemy.
Sleeping With the Enemy was released in 1992. It stimulated much controversy with the songs “Bush Killa” (a revenge fantasy about the assassination of then-president George H. W. Bush) and “Coffee, Donuts & Death,” (a cop-killing tirade). It also featured a young DJ Shadow on production.
Originally scheduled for a pre-presidential election release in 1992, the album was eventually released on Paris’ own Scarface Records after Time Warner shareholders and media pressure prevented then-Warner Bros. Records subsidiary Tommy Boy Records from releasing the project.
