Original track listing for “Disco One” from EMI America

I notice that someone is selling an original press release for the first Disco album on eBay (for a ridiculous amount!). However, it’s interesting seeing the proposed track list including A man could get arrested.

Interesting that they actually called it “Disco One” and not just “Disco”.

Does it mean there's an unreleased, different 12" mix of AMCGA lying around? Both versions (7" and 12") were already available as b-sides at the time, I think.

Calling it Disco One I wonder if this press release is genuine? Why would they have called it Disco One?

Can't find it anywhere on eBay. Likely not genuine.

EDIT: Found it - very strange indeed... "Surburbia" :?:

Philipine LP was titled "Disco One"

There are already 4 versions of AMCGA:

1.A Man Could Get Arrested (7" Mix) [4:50]
2.A Man Could Get Arrested (12" Mix) [4:09]
3.A Man Could Get Arrested (Remix/Alternative Version) [4:18]
4.A Man Could Get Arrested (Extended Mix) [5:37]

I don't know if anyone remembers the old MUSE music catalog from back in the 1980s, but I distinctly remember that old industry catalog's entry for the "Disco" album instead used the title "Disco One" so the press release is most likely legitimate.

In The Night wasn't new at that point though?

Not sure the 5:37 'Extended Mix' exists - think it's a mis-timing/mis-titling of one of the other three versions on a sleeve somewhere - I've certainly never heard it or found it on youtube

Assuming the press release is genuine, I don't know if AMCGA would have worked on Disco anyway. Steven Spiro's production for the seven-inch sounds very different from the rest of the 1985-1986 tracks, a lot less edgy (and pretty cheesy, but that's a matter of taste...). The 12" version feels more suitable to a remix, but they probably weren't on very good terms with Bobby O at the time, were they?
