Hey All...
Posted this on the old board many moons ago, only just got around to checking back! Anyway - I'm after the original b-side live version of "It's Only Rock N Roll" recorded live at the Marquee... think it was the flip side of "I Am, I'm Me" or something like that.... anyway, I bought "Big Hits & Nasty Cuts" expecting it to be on there, but it's a different version. I'm trying to get hold of the version with Dee's classic (and best IMO) rant about "one day he ends up killing his mother & father with an axe, he goes ARRRG MOM AARGH DAD and he kills the muthafuckers..."

I have the vinyl... just no way of listening to it as my turntable is busted. Gotta buy another one soon, but that's another story!

Anyway.. Anyone knows where I can get a digital copy, just for the sake of nostalgia, let me know.

Cheers in advance!
Magnus

Maybe you already have found the song, but if you haven't and if you're familiar with BitTorrent you can go here:

Do a simple search and you will find what you want.

it says in the big hits and nasty cuts track notes that the version on there was the b-side.

Yes, but that version really wasn't on the B-side. Same goes for What You Don't Know. TS recorded two gigs at the Marquee March 5th and 6th. The real B-side version is from one gig and the Big Hits version from the other.

Another very annoying thing with the "Big hits &....." CD is that the true fans need to get both the European and US version.

The European version has only 15 tracks and is missing "Run for your life (Live)", so the European fans must of course buy the US version as well. And for some odd reason the intro to "What you don't know" is 1:10 min longer on the European version so the US fans must of course buy the European version as well.
