      Going back to the subject of Wide Angle promos from a week or so
      ago....

      Someone posted about a very rare 5-track promo for Wide Angle that
      they'd managed to get.

      I've just managed to get hold of one too...and I also found a very
      old message to this list from Stuart Bruce in 1999 with more info
      about it... Here's what he said:

      >Got a 5-track promo for "Wide Angle" through the post this morning.
      >I'd ordered it cheap and I expected it just to be 5 extracts from
      >the full album, but surprisingly, it's quite different.

      >The five tracks are:

      >"Beachcoma"- the album version, fades out after nearly five minutes,
      >unmixed-into-anything at the start, which makes it nice as a stand-
      >alone track but otherwise nothing expected.
      >
      >"Kill City"- begins with the orchestral opening (track 1 from the
      >album) and then breaks into a brand new track I've not heard
      >before! Total running time is nearly five minutes. It's great as

      >Quality stuff, must hear!

      >"Experiment IV"- it only gets better and better. A brand new (to me)
      >vocal track (with a female vocalist, _not_ Julee Cruise) singing a
      >great track, with Apollo 440-esque guitar, Space Brothers-esque
      >high moments, great drum programming (as you'd expect). Lyrical

      >this had been on "Wide Angle" it would have been a stand-out track-
      >I love it. Yet again, nearly five minutes.
      >
      >"Gospel"- would you believe it, nearly five minutes again. This one
      >is an alternative version of "Theme From Wide Angle", with a

      >much the same until it fades out from about 4:40.
