Hello VoodooLounge13 !
Re.: 21 track promo sampler, there's a link on the "Connection" page:
Scroll down and you'll find this:
Unfortunately, *some* of the value may be justified, as this set contains a few
versions of tracks that did not make it in this form to the final discs (while this isn't a big
deal for CD listeners, who can simply acquire a copy of this disc, the improved SACD
layer of a few tracks presents a bigger problem). The different tracks (that aren't merely
shorter edits) are as follows:
1) "Under My Thumb." This track is processed on the officially released discs
(with the hiss level of the track noticeably increasing when the vocals come
in), but is unprocessed here.
2) "Miss Amanda Jones." Still has the folded-in intro, but NO hiss reduction has
been applied to the track at this point.
3) "Jiving Sister Fanny." The version on Metamorphosis suffers from several
digital glitches (as does the rest of the album). The version here is glitch-free.
Thus, the sampler reflects something of a "work-in-progress," as while most
versions here are the versions that would be used on the final discs ("Ruby Tuesday" is
the wrong mix, for example), they aren't necessarily in their final forms. An interesting
listen, but don't pay eBay prices for the novelty!
