Yep, I'd say that would be the version you're thinking of. I got it from Audiogalaxy
a while ago (RIP
) & it goes for the same amount of time the original goes for, except it seems a lot slower & is more "ballad-like" than the original... as well as the drums sounding weird.
I've also got an "extended version
" of it. It goes for 6:09
all up & it takes until 2:08
into the song for the "there is freedom within..."
bit to start. This "extended version" of don't dream it's over
was released as a CD single in it's own right in the UK back in about '86.
Thanks for bringing up the topic, Tommy J
... because I also have a question... In 1996 when Crowded House
were releasing singles in the UK (instinct
and not the girl you think you are
), they also (re?)released don't dream it's over
as a 2CD single. What I want to know is... did they re-record it just for the single, or did they just use the original? If the version on the single is
the original of don't dream it's over
, was it remastered without the band re-recording it?
...because I've got 2 versions that sound identical/almost identical to each other & go for the exact same time. One of them I named "different version" because it sounds just a tad clearer than the original (?) version. Who knows? Maybe I just got the 2 from different albums (CH[/b] and RD
). So what's the informtion on Crowded House
re-releasing don't dream it's over
