Did i get them all?

I hate to nag, but I think you accidentally uploaded Information Society's "How Long" instead of "Going, Going Gone". But I did mention both in my post, so I probably caused some confusion hehe.

I think the cause and effect one has a mix i dont have.

=======================================================

i'll put this request here, in case any one else see's it..

does anyone have this promo CD from OMD:
=======================================
https://www.discogs.com/Orchestral-Mano ... ase/862982

Tracklist
1 Dreaming (Club Mix Edit) 4:58
2 Dreaming (7" Version) 4:15
3 Dreaming (Extended 12" Club Mix) 8:22

I think the extended 12 inch club mix is exclusive to this, and possibly the club mix edit.

I found a FLAC of this promo a few years ago. When I add FLACs to my iTunes I convert them to AIFF (Macs can't play FLACs and I figure if I ever want to burn stuff to CD it's easiest just to have files already in AIFF format anyway), so rather than "re-compress" them, I've uploaded my AIFF files. If you're not on a Mac, just convert them to WAVs and you're good to go. I've tested the files and they are a legit CD rip.

i actually prefer the william orbit mix, but its still nice to have the other versions.

Appreciate the HoJo one, thank you so much, Freshy!

Maybe we can all drop here what we're looking for so someone can help with it? :)

Here is the Going, Going, Gone. I think the tracks might be identical to the Maxi CD i own and that is why i left it out. https://mega.nz/#!mjp1UDTY!JnACUyxQVxrwIXtsIfQFG3mIfNACAehYmSq5JOvO0Q4

Thanks Freshy. Actually the GGG promo had an edit that fades a minute earlier than the commercial single and album. The How Long promo has three of the same tracks as the commercial single.

Theres a promo for the regular single and one for the remix.
Both appear to have all the same mixes as the normal releases from what i can tell.

I have the limited release boxset that came with CD that has the 6 jingles that are 30 sec total, but they're not really worth getting,
unless you're a completist.

I wasn't aware that the two mixes of Expo2000 Kling Klang Mix 2001 (Radio Mix) and Expo2000 Kling Klang Mix 2002 (Radio Mix) had appeared anywhere else in these shortened mixes as they usual appear in their full six minute plus mix?

Sorry, i stand corrected. You are correct, the radio edits have not been released elsewhere. I forgot about this promo, and now have to find a copy.
Thanks for pointing that out.

It would be helpful for people to post the track listings for the items, that might help explain what is worth getting.
Also, when people post compilations of tracks with no listing, it makes me less likely to check them out.
