||Even if this is a CDr, and I have to list
it as it is one of the rarest and most interesting item. Which is
interesting is the content : tracks which were supposed to be released
as b-sides in the first place but this never happened.
Also, the sound quality is not perfect, seems it hasn't go to the
In 2001, 2 of these songs (Fill her up & Desert rose) werre
finaly released on the Fragile single issued from ...All this time
Here comes review of the tracks, by Erwin Kempen and me :
thousand years : is a single
edit version (4.40), not many changes to the song, pretty much
the same as the single release, the beginning is different, lets
say the skipped the first part.
A thousand years : as instrumental
b-side (6.00), with a 3 seconds longer start.
Fill her up : version 1 (4.46), completely
different arrangement than the one on the album, still very much
a country song. Lyrics are the same.
Fill her up : version 2 (4.46), slightly
different than the above still different. I think that these are
probably stings first ideas of the song and that this was changed
later in the version which was released.
Big lie small world : b-side version
(5.10) , Guitar intro is the same but the rest of the song is
completely instrumental with Sting only on backing vocals, these
vocals are different than the album release... ver interesting
Tomorrow we'll see : b-side version
(4.47) , I didn't hear any differences.
Desert Rose : b-side version (4.47)
, Cheb Mami isn't on it so it looks very different, arrangement
is on some places different aswell, again sting is doing 2nd voice
Folk Tune : (5.38) Is probably the
working tittle for "Ghost story". Sounds like an early
arrangement, completely instrumental.
Bach Parita : (2.50) , could have
been for the CD-ROM game I think, Sting on accoustic guitar playing
a classical song.
