"Hey there Mimi10514 - consider yourself lucky. Actually, consider yourself super lucky. You have the International (UK) release of this CD, which mirrors the US I PALINDROME I single, substituting The Guitar and The Guitar (Williamsburgh extended mix) - a remix only on the international CD - for IPI and Larger Than Life (She's Actual Size remix).
The US release is what is stated in this entry on Amazon.
As for the EP, The Guitar is a great retooling of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. The CD was a promo for Apollo 18, but as most TMBG singles/EP's go it has one song from the album and a whole lot that isn't - this one does not fail to deliver.
Welcome To The Jungle (not the GNR song), I Blame You, and Moving to the Sun are all non-album songs that you will find match the TMBG style, especially for the era of Apollo 18. Remixes are huge to the Johns, and The Guitar receives two on this CD.
Overall I'd give this CD 4 stars. It's among their better promo CD's, but it's not exactly my favorite song from Apollo 18.
If you're into the remixes, try to hunt down that UK version, or even the 12" Vinyl Istanbul single with four remixes of the infamous song."
