    Default RWTD Best of

    I know this has been discussed but I don't recall the answers/reason. I was listening to my copy of Best of vol 1 today...one that has the "rearranged" RWTD. Why was that do,e and how would it even happen? Thanks.

    Wasn't it a mistake with the remixing / sequencing ?
    An accidental pressing that got out , I believe .

    I actually love the fact it's different and only a few have the mistake....but how does that happen even in a remixing? The song is completely rearranged. It had to be on purpose...

    Not too sure .
    Others could weigh in better than me ...

    I do remember it being talked about before , but also don't recall the end result of the discussion .

    I'm so pleased to have the Vol. 1 pressing with the "alternate version" of RWTD. It's almost certainly more of an "experiment" than a mistake.

    I've done many, many alternate/extended "remixes" like that, actually, much better and more "professional" if I do say so myself, using only PC software.

    If I recall correctly then they pulled the songs from the WB tape library for remastering for this set and RWTD was an old non-album edit that was mistakenly pulled and used, and nobody seemed to notice until after the CD release. So not a 1996 remix (or: edit, as I think this is the exact same mix as on the album, only sequenced differently), but an old version that was already there. But that's just what I remember, mght be wrong.

    So I've noticed that on Sirius Satellite radio, the Classic Rewind channel plays this version! Other channels play the first album version.

    Probably because you put your CD player on shuffle and it mixed up the parts.

    Yep, I have it too and it bothers me. It sounds like they were trying to "even out" the guitar solo verse/arrangement but it just doesn't work.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
