As there are no promo CD details in the database, here's what I have:

ASCD-2848
1. non-described version (listed & actual 4:00)

ASCD-2881
1. Remix (listed & actual 4:02)
2. Urban Mix (listed & actual 4:02)
3. Album Version (listed & actual 4:00)

It took me a while to find the remix promo, and I just finally obtained a copy a few weeks ago.

Aaron, do you recall if the remix promo was on the one that aired on radio back then? I didn't even realize there was one. I don't suppose it's on any of their compilations. Is it a radical remix, or just done to do a better mix of mainly what was already there?

We played only the album version at the station where I worked, and it wasn't until a few years ago that I even knew a remix CD existed. It's not a radical remix, and it retains many elements of the original. The biggest differences are the drum track and keyboard bass line. There are other small overdubs, too, but it's pretty faithful to the original. My guess is that the remix was aimed at Rhythmic CHR stations who needed it to sound a little more "urban" to fit in with the other songs on their playlists.

The "Urban Mix" is not quite as close to the original. There is yet another new drum track, and most of the instrumentation has been changed on this mix.

Is there a 45 vs LP difference for this song?

The US 3-track CD single has a non-described version as the lead track, which is presumably the album version. The US maxi CD single has the "Album Version" as the lead track, and it looks like it also includes the two remixes found on the promo CD.

I found online a Take That "Back For Good" UK CD single (which I have not yet bought) which simply has a version called "radio mix". There's a 30-second sample on iTunes if you google it but I really couldn't tell if it was the main "remix" Aaron describes above. And I'm a little confused by all that, Aaron - from your last post and your first post, it sounds like there are 3 completely different "Back For Good" CD singles that have 3 versions of the song on it:

US 3-track CD single
US Maxi CD single
US Promo CD Single ASCD-2881

They may not all match up in terms of versions but do they all have 3 versions, Aaron?

Also, this thing on the UK CD single called "radio mix" ... I wonder ... since it was released in the US much later than the UK, I wonder if our album version was UK's "radio mix". Does anyone know?

There are two US stock CD singles:

Arista 12849-2
1. Back For Good
2. Love Ain't Here Anymore
3. Back For Good (Live)

Arista 12880-2
1. Back For Good (Album Version)
2. Love Ain't Here Anymore
3. Back For Good (Remix)
4. Back For Good (Urban Mix)
5. Back For Good (Live)

If you search iTunes, the album Nobody Else has two versions on it, and neither one has a version labeled. Track 13, though, is the Urban Mix. The main "Remix" version is much more faithful to the original.

Thanks for the info, Aaron. I'll definitely be getting the 2nd CD single you list.
