Thanks... wonder why they were so strict on this.
Perhaps they're trying to ensure it's not being copied?
Hello,

Id let you listen to my copy.....but then I'd have to kill you.
Too late I've stolen your copy.
LOL! I used to work for a record store when I was much younger, we would get promo copies to pre-listen before they were released and they always had stickers on them about not to copy them, they belonged to the record company etc... don't ever recall them asking for them back, in fact I was given a Ramones album, which I still have that even had a PR letter in it explaining who the Ramones were just in case you were clueless.

These are the tracks listed:

1. London Calling (Original)
2. London Calling 2012 (Full Instrumental)
3. London Calling 2012 (Faraway Towns - Mix)
4. London Calling 2012 (Live By The River - Mix)
Yeah, I still want one.
Is this different from the 2012 RSD release?
The first two tracks are the same as the 7" release. It's the other two mixes by Mick that are not available anywhere else. It comes with a record company warning not to be sold.

WARNING! THIS AUDIO IS UNIQUE AND TRACEABLE.
NUMBERED EDITION OF 200
I think the Original really is the Original, so without the extra spoken intro on the 7" single.

Yeah without the " news read by Barry Baker". It's the original version.

Now we need an anonymous good man doing a FLAC upload (even with artwork) :scared:

Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't the fact that they made a promo disc mean they were expecting to release these versions?
Maybe a scrapped project?

From what I can tell, it's just the Live By The River Mix that is obscure. So, uploading just that one wouldn't be leaking the whole thing, right? :shifty:

Where are these other 3 then?
I have the RSD single, so I know I have the Instrumental Version and the 2012 Remix.
I don't understand the 1st track as "original version". Is that just the LP version?
I'm totally confused!

Alls I know is that the first three are easy to find on Soulseek. It's that last one that is elusive.

I'm on Soulseek so I'll look for them. Do they have the same "name" ie London Calling 2012 (Faraway Towns - Mix)?

I was given an upload with artwork by another board member. As he kindly shared it with me I think it only correct to wait and see if he wants to share it further. Otherwise it stays where it is.

The first track is the original single mix. Then the 2012 instrumental. Then two unreleased mixes by Mick which just drop out various vocals from the main track. Not that exciting really.

That sounds reasonable and fair.
So your Nuclear meltdown Version is completely different then any of these?
