4.9 What is Versions? (The Wedding Present Songs and albums)

Jesse Obstbaum (PersFave@aol.com): "Versions was the 10"
released in America following Watusi, sub-titled 'A collection
of b-sides and out-takes from the Watusi sessions.' The track
listing is: Spangle (Version), Flame On, Jumper Clown, Le
Bikini, Gazebo (Version), Bubbles, Him Or Me (What's It Gonna
Be)?, So Long Baby (Version). The release covers all of the
non-LP tracks The Wedding Present recorded with Steve Fisk
except the acoustic version of It's A Gas. It was intended to
be a promo-only release to be sent to college radio for a
second push.

"Unfortunately, by the time it was pressed, the powers-that-be
at Island US had lost interest in the band and most copies were
sent out to indie promoters to 'do with what they will.'"
