Now you got me wondering what's on MY CD. Will have to check it out. I'm pretty sure it's not "Simple as That" as I just discovered that song (on this Forum) a year or two ago.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

Welcome to the forum @ramrod 

My copy just has the standard three bonus tracks.

I'm wondering where you obtained it? I have a few of the supposedly Japanese releases of Paul's CDs and I suspect they are Russian knock-offs. Some of the Russian "unofficial" releases of Ringo's albums have all sorts of odd extra tracks on them so I'm wondering if that's a possibilty?

Other than that I don't have anything else to suggest, sorry.

Sounds like a balls-up by some pirate label trying to pass it off as official. Those bonus tracks are from the 'Pipes Of Peace ' 1993 reissue.

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:
