According to the site, "Do what you want" "An acoustic version was recorded backstage at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark on July 2, 1993 by the Norwegian radio station NRK P3."

Is it "Do what you want (acoustic) A": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYSIaZuAoD8

or "Do what you want (acoustic) B": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Liu7muaRSA ?

And where does the one that's not from that Roskilde come from ?

It crossed my mind that they could be different qualities of the same record but I still don't get this when listening, I even have the impression that Brett is singing along on version B but not on version A...


Also, this page: https://www.thebrpage.net/theanswer/?article=roskilde_festival
mentions that they also recorded suffer acoustic there.
"Suffer (acoustic)": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnPwUshysEs

Judging on the sound of the only Suffer acoustic I can remember... it seems to match "Do what you want (acoustic) A" ... except I always though that it was version B that came from Roskilde.

But still judging from the sound, I guess that "1000 more fools (acoustic)": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpA5o9zAK8c comes from the same sessions as "Do what you want (acoustic) A" and "Suffer (acoustic)"

Then is the site forgetting to mention "1000 more fools (acoustic)" from Roskilde ? Or where is "Suffer (acoustic)" version that would match "Do what you want (acoustic) B" ?
Or others options I haven't considered ?

There's this collection that circulated a while ago on the internet called "Bad Religion - B-sides & otherwise" and it contains Do What You Want and Suffer from the Roskilde acoustic set.

Assuming they are labeled correctly, Do What You Want (acoustic) B is the Roskilde version, although the version on Youtube is cut. On the extended version, they start over a couple of times because of mistakes.
I was not able to find the Roskilde version of Suffer acoustic on Youtube. It's definitely not the same as the one you linked.

I agree that these three songs (Do What You Want A, 1000 More Fools, Suffer) sound like they are probably from one session, but I have no idea when or where those were recorded.

Thank you. Apparently, one of my (three?) MP3 files of 1000 more fools (acoustic) has "B-Sides And Rarities" as album tag. May this be what you mean by "B-sides & otherwise" ?... these are quite vague titles anyway.

And this version of "1000 more fools" is the same I link from YouTube. So if the source is the same compilation, that compilation would have "Do what you want (acoustic) B" "Suffer (acoustic) B" (from Roskilde) which I don't I have anywhere, and 1000 more fools (acoustic) from that other sessions ?

Also, my BR rare files folder is a complete mess that I accumulated over years, some stuff must be there since the 90's or so)... (I usually keep things in perfect order ... except "Rare and live" types which can become a real mess depending on artists.) (That's why I'm trying to extract best quality I find for each track and properly tag them...)

Well "B-sides & otherwise" is of course just what the uploader called it. The two Roskilde songs were on there. The other three I also have, but from some other collection that I must have downloaded from either some torrent site or bad-religion.net. And unfortunately there's no information attached on where or when those songs were recorded.
