I hate you forumers.

There I was, happy owner of almost all Chris' albums, on my way to complete singles.
Then what?!

You come peacefully onto the forum, and those moon-wired reaholic weirdos pour on you all the fancy sites like Eli or LetItBe, or hot Amazon auctions, with rare and unique Man's records. Sometimes having sky-high prices, not that I don't think they aren't worthy. Just my wallet yelled at me "stop it don't look there!!!". Great. They even got the nerve to let you know of some songs, that you are almost sure that you will never hear.

Ahhh, "Fool, if you think it's over", how correct it is.
I hate you all so much.

:D

Yo Lily!
Aye, it's good to be among other lunatics here in asylum on forum :D

Those collections...
It was a time I did not understand particular people, like they have a lot of money and still want more.
Now I understand somehow... :)

Ok, my bad, Red is NOT a B side (but it sounded like one! :P )

It belongs to Espresso Logic.

And here it is, from Milan 94...

I don't know for sure if this the answer to your question but Mowtown Mania was a televised event in the UK and I suspect anyone that recorded the show would have the "live" audience copy. There was also an album released of the songs from the show that did not have audience inclusion so I'm guessing that is the reason for the "two" versions, though of course some of our more informed friends might know differently?

I got it Poolie..... :D

I'm impressed now. Not that I haven't been already ;)

Okay now we got to start paying Lily serious cash for her efforts, otherwise she might turn into some Britney Spears fan and start researching her instead.

Woman, do you even sleep? :D
Do you imagine yourself being let into Chris' archives in recording studio??


PS. This video... I cannot get rid of the impression that it was on playback. Exactly the same as was his mini-concert on Polish TV.

Britney Spears???? Not in a million years!!! :evil:
I do it for the love and legacy of the Man , not money.

As with every studio version of his videos, he's bound to miss some lip-syncing and those of us who observe every detail, always notice the funny things he does trying to cover it up, :lol:

Lily are you seriously saying that Chris lip syncs??? I don't understand why would he do this he can sing perfectly or maybe I have mis read or misunderstood what you mean.

Tina, Chris lip-syncs every "studio" version of his videos!! Watch closely at the videos mention by Zgred and this one, as well as these....

And so many others ... !

If you've been listening to Chris long enough, then you can definitely tell between a studio and live version of his songs on a video.

I'm sure he had no choice at times to promote his songs, and we love him just the same! :D

The same goes for his guitar solos on some of the videos, he simply strumms, but you can see it on his face he missed the cue ..... (none more obvious that the Tennis video! cute :D )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=768gAExxGDc

Of course he was much younger and inexperienced then..... :D

The live versions are by far my favorites:

You know, I wouldn't also believe he is lip-syncing, if I didn't hear the song I know almost every note of :lol:

So he's at the TVP with this mini-concert, and is playing All Summer Long (KOTB one, not from Shamrock Diaries). I am listening to this, and am having this feeling like I heard it before. And there is one particular moment: when the lyric goes "...all I know is... she will be there...", the Man goes "sh-she will be there" on the album. When I heard THAT - "live" - everything was clear :?

Well not that it matters so much... but live version is live version, each is different, what we all enjoy. Only excuse I can think of, he didn't look well that time. After that I started paying attention and yes, turned out CR often uses playback. But there is, kind of, way we can tell when it happens. Got idea? ;)

Lily recently put this video where he so totally missed, that even started to laugh of it and kept on the masquerade :D :D
