As a thanks to those of you who have been helping me restore some of my audio files, I am uploading a few rare/odd Book Of Love tracks in FLAC format:

1 Tubular Bells (Full 7" Mix) (4:26)
I re-created this mix using the "I Touch Roses" CD and re-inserted the 16secs that had been edited out from 2:56-3:12 using my own vinyl transfer from the USA 12"

2 Lullaby (7" Remix - Fixed) (4:24)
The first beat of this track always bothered me because it's missing the full bass drum and sounds clumsy. I restored the first beat simply by cutting and pasting the 17th beat. May not be of interest to anyone other than myself lol but I'll share it just in case.

3 Lullaby (Pleasant Dream Mix - 115BPM) (7:18)
Somehow I didn't realize until today that Tracks 3&4 on the USA Promo CD-Single (as well as on the original 12" vinyl) were actually sped up! Justin Strauss did this with his remixes on occasion (although his remix of Camouflage's "That Smiling Face" was actually SLOWED DOWN which is a bit odd). This made the songs more club friendly, but upon this discovery I wanted to also be able to hear them at the original tempo of 115BPM. I think they sound very nice actually. Justin Strauss's 7" Remix (see Track 2 above) was NOT sped up, btw.

4 Lullaby (Insomnia Mix - 115BPM) (7:06)
See description for Track 3 above

5 Witchcraft (7" Remix) (3:05)
I uploaded a FLAC of this a couple years ago so I apologize to those who may have downloaded it then. This is from the "Follow Our Trax - Volume II" USA Promo CD (PRO-CD3650) and can not be found on any other CD.

6 I Touch Roses (Markus Schulz Dark Rose Remix) (8:45)
This mix was a hit in clubs 2001 (back when I was still DJing!) in support of their "I Touch Roses" CD. It was never commercially released. This is taken from the "Just Beat 03 (WMC Sampler)" USA Promo CD (PRO-CD-100546)

All tracks are directly from the CD sources (with the exception of the 16secs of vinyl in "Tubular Bells")! Enjoy!
