There's Always Me - Import CD

Thu Jun 12, 2003 3:01 am

Just wondered if someone could help me out with some take numbers from the CD set "There's Always Me - Volume 1".
The box doesn't list the take numbers for the following songs:

There’s Always Me


11 - Stuck On You (Alt. Take)
12 - I Feel So Bad (Alt. Take)
13 - Dirty Dirty Feeling (Alt. Take)
14 - Thrill Of Your Love (Alt. Take)
15 - Such A Night (Alt. Take)
16 - Are You Lonesome Tonight (Alt. Take)
17 - Girl Next Door Went A-Walkin' (Alt. Take)
18 - A Mess Of Blues (Alt. Take)
19 - It Feels So Right (Alt. Take)
20 - Fame And Fortune (Alt. Take)
21 - Surrender (Alt. Take)
23 - I'm Coming Home (Alt. Take)

Can someone help me out?

I know that all except maybe the last few have been released by BMG or FTD. I'll get more on the others later.

Can't fault Thijs077 !

'Fame & Fortune' could be Take 8.

Check out the great Masters and Sessions web site. Go to and look at the session data for each song.

Import Cd's

Why are Import Cd's called Import CD's - it's not as though they are all imported from somewhere - depending where you live :!:

It is just a PC name for bootleg or pirated copy :?:

Yeah, pretty much a "code name" for bootleg - not always, but often...

Yeah, 'import' isn't really the right word.

Better than 'bootleg' I guess.

I prefer 'unofficial'.

This doesn't imply that it is 'imported' from somewhere or that it might be 'illegal'.

So what is wrong with bootleg?

I had Surrender as Take 2. I'll have to check it out. Does he go for the high note at the end? I can't remember.

It's definitly not take 2, I just checked it with There's always me 1 and Surrender imports.

Take 2 is very much different according to the one on TAM1.

Anybody knows whats going on???

The site still works at my place.

You should try again.

Maybe it was down for some time.
