Make Sure it's Legit

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some people slap together home-produced compilations and try to sell it under the assumption it's an official release. The fact tht there's no picture or other info besides "4-discs" and "import" isn't very encouraging. Here's what to expect if you get a legitimate copy of the German box set featured here. I cut and pasted from a few web sitea after doing some research:

Warner Brothers 9362-41268-2 (4 CD Box Set) Dec. 1993(GE)

(Compilation of Warner Brothers B-sides. Each disk has a "theme": Vocal Tracks, Instrumental Tracks, Cover Versions and "B-sides from Singleactiongreen.")

Disk 1:
"Vocal Tracks"- It's a Free World, Baby / Fretless / Chance (Dub) / Star Me Kitten (Demo)

Disk 2:
"Instrumental Tracks": Winged Mammal Theme / Organ Song / Mandolin Strum / Fruity Organ / New Orleans Instrumental #2

Disk 3:
"Cover Versions": Arms of Love / Dark Globe / The Lion Sleeps Tonight / First We Take Manhattan

Disk 4:
"Singleactiongreen B-sides": Ghost Riders / Funtime / Memphis Train Blues / Pop Song '89 (Acoustic) / Everybody Hurts (Live) (Everybody Hurts recorded 9/2/93, Los Angeles, CA, for the MTV Video Awards. It isn't really one of the b-sides from Singleactiongreen, but from the Find the River CD/7".)

SO I am ordering this product as we speak. I'll write another review if possible to let you know what happens."
