'Close Up' additions

Fri Jun 20, 2003 4:18 am

Has Night Rider- take 1- '61 version, and Ku-u-i-po (6,7) been added to the track list of the Close Up box? They are not listed on some websites and are listed on others.

Is'nt this the same Night Rider-take 1 from 1961 that is on 'Collectors Gold'?

they only used the false start from take 1 of night rider on collectors gold
it has never been released complete by bmg.

Thanks catman. After further review, I realise it is the false start before take 1 and take 2 that is on Collectors Gold. The booklet says takes 1&2.

I hope on 'Close Up' they include this false start w/take 1 as it 'goes with it', though we've heard it before.

My original question; we're these two songs added on after the first press release?

Yes, after the initial track-listing was released, they added one extra track to CD's 1, 2 & 3.

The other track [which you don't mention] was a fast version of 'Loving You'.
