    Default '96 Alternate RWTD questions

    What is the story behind the alternate remix of "Runnin' With The Devil" on the 1996 "Best Of - Vol. 1" CD?
    Was it just the first few thousand CDs that year and then it was fixed?
    I think I read it was an accident and not an intentional shot at a remix, right?
    I searched YouTube for a listen, but I didn't find it - does anyone have it in mp3 format? Or would anyone who has this CD be willing to part with it?

    Thanks!

    It was a mistake, it's not a remix really, it's an edit.
    Not sure how many copies it was but if you bought the cd when it first came out it was on there.

    I have it somewhere i think.

    I remember noticing it the first time i played it the day it came out and thinking wtf?

    You are the expert - I appreciate the info. Possible YouTube upload, if worthy? Just curious to hear it.

    If I remember right, the remix was really just like the early demos where the second solo is right after the first.

    I have it. We actually play it at our station, it was added by one of our old music directors. Pretty neat actually.

    I haven't heard it in years but if i remember right it's an edit mistake where 2 parts of the song are switched.
    Like the second solo comes in too soon or something.
    Only a diehard would notice it.
    Now i want to hear it!
    LOL!
    I'll dig and see if i still have the cd somewhere.

    I still have it. I remember when I bought it and listened I was like what the fuck was that?? I remember second guessing myself about whether I'd really just heard the song all jumbled up.

    That's an understatement.

    It couldn't sound more hacked up and pieced together.

    Ok - now I'm dying to hear it. Anyone willing to upload it to YouTube? Or PM me to work out a transaction (I'd just want a copy - not the original).

    Thanks for all the info - just been on a heavy VH kick lately!

    I think i sold the cd years ago but may still have the cassette in a box.
    Bought the cd and cassette the day they came out.

    Is the version on spotify the regular version?
    I tried playing it and it played a live version off my computer with mike singing that i recorded from the last birthday bash.
    Weird how that works.

    I still have it, I prefer it because it is longer or sounds that way at least.

    Now somebody explain the "ahhhh ohhhh" in the Jump video.
