Gett Off. US single release vs. UK single release

Everyone will say the US single release is better because of how unique it is. He tried doing the same thing with Cream but it obviously wasn't as good as it. The UK release is interesting, and some of these mixes made it into the US on promo-only issues.

What differences do you mean? Are you talking about the maxi-single?

The big issue with the Gett Off singles from a collector's standpoint is that some of the remix names were switched around on the US and UK releases so it can be a real pain if you're trying to collect everything.

Actually a lot of those mixes are the same, just different names. Def a pain just in that.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I haven't listen to it in years, but I thought at least one mix was different (not much though). Again this is 20 year memory!

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

So, you just repeat what someone says and pretend you're saying something different? lol.

.

You did not describe the reasons for uniqueness.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

You try so hard, but you just look stupid. Conversation isn't your forte, I get it.

Coming from you, that is hilarious.

If conversation to you means, as I said, repeating what someone else said and playing it off as a contribution then no wonder you're in the state you're in.

Anyway...
