Release notes

Strictly promotional release issued in the UK to promote the album "We Can't Dance" and perhaps other?. The catalogue numbers printed on the label are:

665 572

Note: the dark areas showed on the disc are not covered by paint. This is a mirror that cannot be scanned by the scanner. In day light this part of the disc is silver. This is not recorded part of the CD.

The main catalogue number of the single is GENDX10. The other numbers are likely to be an European catalogue numbers used by Virgin distributors.

The single contains 3 tracks:

1. Invisible Touch (Live)
2. ABACAB (Live)
3. The Brazilian (Live)

The disc of this release is silver with a black text on it. There is no country of manufacture present on disc, but this is UK pressing. The matrix numbers of the disc are "890093 . 2:2:3 EMI Swindon". The CD has been manufactured by EMI plant in Swindon.

This promo CD single was distributed to the radio stations, across the UK, in February 1993 during promotion of "The Way We Walk Volume 2: The Longs" album. The CD came with Virgin sticker applied on jewel case with a release date of 08 Feb 1993. Of course this is not the date when GENDX10 single was released, but a date when another single containing "Invisible Touch (Live)" song was out.

It's hard to say why such a sticker came with the single, but it appears that this promo CD single was send by Virgin Records to promote "The Way We Walk Volume 2: The Longs" and "The Invisible Series".

As shown on the scans above, the CD has no booklet. It is just the disc and plain jewel case. I purchased this copy long time ago on eBay and never have seen any other since. Hard to talk about the rarity, but I guess this particular promo is somewhat rare.

Disc variation

No variation that I know of.
