Higher Ground
On youtube a longer version of Higher Ground circulates.
What i wanna know for years now if this is a genuine version.
It sounds like one, normally the song fades after the last chorus but instead of fading Astro comes in with a bit of toasting followed by a long instrumental bit.
Is this real and on which format was this available? Maybe a test pressing or a promo cassette. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

higher ground
hello david,

Yeah the version did get an official release in France. There is a sampler promo cd from promises and lies (very rare) with this version on it and a longer version of Now and Then. The version of Higher ground is also released on a virgin various artist promo cd

hope this will answer your question

greeting Ubnormie

Hi Ubnormie

Has there been any news on any other deluxe versions being released? Did you get any feedback on how well PA and LOL Deluxe versions sold

Best regards Chronic

hello chronic
I did made the complete serie till Promises and Lies for UNIVERSAL, but don't know if they or when they gonna release something... there are some real special releases on the albums. Expecialy the only once broadcasted BBC sessions. Some nice live gigs also. Maybe they didn't sell enough of LOL and PA... i don't know... i did try to contact my person at universal but so far no reaction.... recordcompanies are going for the quick money i think

Thanks ubnormie

That's a great track listing for UB44 especially the BBC live sessions. If this was left to Universal I would imagine that they would have incorporated "UB40 Live" as a disc.

I would be interested to see the other track listings for the other potential deluxe versions that you have suggested.

Best regards

Thanks UBNormie. Is there a possibility to get these 2 extended versions?
