WO Promo Disc Set Featuring… Madonna
Hi Tribers and welcome back to The Immaculate collecting. The “Ray of Light/Music” era was very prolific and got Madonna a brand new bunch of fans thanks to the amazing music she produced with British producer William Orbit. Today’s piece of memorabilia comes from that era and is considered a rare Madonna/Orbit collectable.
It’s a rare official and limited edition promo release two disc CD set released in year 2002 to support Orbit’s publishing catalogue.
The discs housed inside a spectacular “lucite perspex spindle casement shell” are actually three, two are music cds and one is just a double-sided display disc with complete track names on it!
Die hard Madonna collectors surely own this piece and many fans are aware of this rarity and some have
the tracks in question courtesy of peer to peer services. This set features a total of 43 tracks produced by Orbit, and the most interesting thing to Madonna fans is that among the 11 Madonna songs included on
this release there are unreleased instrumental versions otherwise officially unavailable.
And these are:
1. An edited beautiful instrumental version of Drowned World/Substitute for Love.
2. A shorter (compared to the album version) instrumental version of Ray Of Light.
3. The instrumental album version of Mer Girl.
4. A unique instrumental version of Amazing, different from the album version.
5. A slighty shorter (compared to the album) version of Time Stood Still from the “unforgettable” The Next Best Thing movie soundtrack.
The remaining five Madonna songs with vocals are: Beautiful Stranger, Cuidado Con Mi Corazon (Ricky Martin featuring Madonna),
Candy Perfume Girl, Shanti Ashtangi, Swim and Has To Be.
