Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

#1 Post by geowayne » Mon 23 Dec 2019, 5:03 pm

Some sites, such as Amazon, are reporting that the Japanese edition of Hotspot will have a "bonus track." A few sites are even reporting *two* bonus tracks on the Japanese edition. But none of them (at least that I've seen) say what the bonus track(s) may be. Have any of you heard anything more about this? Personally, if this proves true, I suspect those bonus tracks will be one or more of the single b-sides already released, such as "An Open Mind" and/or "Decide." But that's just some speculation on my part.

I remember this time before Super was released these sites (cdjapan and hmv.co.jp) also stated that Japanese edition will have 1 bonus track. But at the day of release appeared that it have regular tracklist. So anything can happen.

Wayne,
I check CD Japan every few days to see if they've updated their listing and nothing yet. A guy over on the Steve Hoffman forums said he was told the tracks were going to be "Decide" and "Decide" (CYA remix), which would make sense as there was no CD single, but he didn't say what his source was. I'm eagerly awaiting the answer to this one as well.

The "Super" bonus track was listed as "The lost room" but that was pulled a few weeks before release.

It would be interesting to know the reason of cancellation. Did they block it because it was still unfinished or they were unhappy with results? Good old times when they were not aware of the fact that people in Japan had an access to Miserablism a year before its official release as a b side...

...and that they had a 9 and a half minute version of This Must Be The Place I Waited Years To Leave that doesn't even exist!

When Behaviour was released, it was mentioned in Literally that the Japanese version of Behaviour included Miserablism, Bet She is not your girlfriend and an extended mix of This ........

To be honest, the whole Electric album was all kinds of bonus tracks for Elysium :D

I agree. As they mentioned in "Literally" that the "Lost room" was part of a sub-set of "dark techno" tracks, I just assumed they decided they had other plans for that collection of songs. I don't have that issue handy, but there were at least six, correct?

I just remember some anectode from this forum, I believe, that some fan talked with Chris about Miserablism during their Performance tour and he seemed to be surprised that this fan had already heard that. So it is in contradiction with this Literally content... Hovewer, sometimes I have an impression, not only in PSB case, that many bands and musician are not aware of many events from their career. They even forget their past single choices, some basic discography facts etc. It's so strange...

Anyway, all that unreleased, repeatedly reproduced and finally archived stuff is something I'm really looking for. They have so many songs, more or less finished, which could be a great gem if released in a box. Most artists tend to record 10-11 songs for an album, they working on them and after sessions are over there is nothing left. PSB could complete 3 or 4 regular albums with their outtakes. Cannot believe we have never heard any demo from Behaviour.
