Did you make an offer Peter ?



On your website you have:
Song For No One - 5'' promo (with 'alternative radio mix')
I Die For You Today - 5'' promo (unnamed version)
Catching Rays On Giant - 5'' promo (4 tracks, 3 labelled 'work in progress')

Would you be kind enough for telling us what versions are different from the album ? Could you provide some at-least-readable scans ? Those items are a mystery to me and I don't even know if they should be in the scope of my collection (I don't collect rare items, I collect items wich have at least one track unavailable elsewhere).

My holy grail for now (and it has been for a long time) is the extremely rare "Für Dich" promo CD. I've talked with Kai Hawaii on numerous occasions and he says he has a copy (and he also added very few got made)...


He also said that, apart from playing at the Tipi concert, it was played a second time, in 2005. He said it was played in Hanover (during a tour)


@Halfnelson - The promo with the "work in progress" mixes is interesting. The tracks themselves are watermarked apparently (traceable to the original person who got it), but the album is so old I doubt much would (or could) happen to anyone who uploaded them. That's my second most-wanted thing. lol


Well, this thread died pretty much right after I posted on here. I know all of you hate me. I'll leave now!

Halfy, would the work in progress tracks happen to be I Die For You Today, Call Me and Fallen Angel ?

As I mentioned before, It's a pity that the DVD is spoken German with no subtitles

Romeos 2nd US 5'' promo.

Seems to be very rare. Now from a musical point of view this version is a serious candidate for the title of the least interesting version from any song.

Basically, as far as I can tell, this is the single version played 4% faster, listening differences from the original version are barely even discernible except maybe the heavy guitar intro.

Who the hell woke up one morning and thought it would be a great idea to put that on an official CD ? And who at WEA-US have given a green light ?
