    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but if I knew the answer then I wouldn't be asking now would I?!
    Why does "Runnin' with the Devil" have that strange remix on Best Of Vol. 1?
    And why was the Fair Warning tour dubbed the "WDFA" tour?
    Thanx,
    Frank

    It was done that way by mistake. Someone chose the wrong mix I believe.

    And why was the Fair Warning tour dubbed the "WDFA" tour?
    WDFA stands for We Don't Fuck Around, and it was a saying that Dave started I think. I wasn't aware that the Fair Warning tour was ever referred to as the WDFA tour, but the saying dates to the WACF timeframe.

    Going to send this to the Songs forum. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I seem to remember that it's only the first pressings of the BOV1 that have RWTD mixed up.

    Thanx Glenn...

    And if thats the case MikeL, I got a copy of the first pressing. Really freaked me out the first time I heard it. I thought maybe they did it on purpose!?!

    It turns out that that is the original recording of the song, and that the order of verses changed in the original mastering. The person re-mastering it had probably never heard the song, but just another computer geek hired to do the job.

    Ok if WACF was World Invasion and FW was WDFA which one was Hide Your Sheep? I thought it was FW but maybe it's DD. I always thought that was the funniest tour name I ever heard.

    BOV1 also screwed up the song credits. Mike gets no credit for Panama and Jump. Were they under some type of time pressure to get BOV1 completed? Was it "Hurry and get this out before the news about Dave gets out."?

    Also in the liner notes Take Your Whiskey Home is listed as Take The Whiskey Home.

    Yep. In fact, a lot of these shirts go for some big money nowadays. ($30 and upward)

    Bullshit.

    I know that was the "official" explanation issued by Van Danniels Inc. at the time, but like everything else they said in 1996, it was a total fucking lie.

    Anyone with functioning ears can hear the fucked up edits in that "remix"

    I'm with FORD on this one, that remix was totally done on purpose, there is no other explanation for it. There would be no reason to chop the song up and re-orders parts of it when all you are doing is re-mastering it. That dumb explanation that is was by accident never made any sense then, and doesn't now. I have no idea why they did that to the song, but you can tell it whoever did it knew full well what they were doing.
