The Boy Who Couldn't Keep His Clothes On....

#1 Post by tottenhammattspurs »

Not sure this warrants an actual topic etc but randomly decided to play my Promo CD of A Red Letter Day (CDRDJ 6460)

The last ten seconds or so of The Boy Who Couldn't Keep His Clothes On has sleigh bells on it! No other release including the commercial cd single that has the original version on it has these sleigh bells. Anyone know WHY? It's hardly a Xmas song, wasn't released until around March 1997 so certainly missing the Xmas market and doesn't fit in with anything else on the track.

Were the promos perhaps released in December? They used to proceed the commercial release by some time.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

I got a vinyl promo (bought in an obscure record shop in Islington, London some time late in 2003) with the On stage at Twilo-remix. It's a weird mix. Anybody knows who did it? Was it Tenaglia?

The 'moscow mix' on the CD has sleigh bells!
In the first minute.
It's a good package, A Red Letter Day. Must listen to it again.

Ugh sorry, forgot my brain. But maybe the sleigh bells from A red letter day are what made it onto TBWKKHCO... must've been chilly...

Yes it was Tenaglia (http://dannytenaglia.com). I got the vinyl promo in London too...I think at Music and Video Exchange in Notting Hill. I need to re-listen to the different versions...
