- Tiger Tiger (Radio Edit) 3:11 (Sager/Pier)


An interesting radio promo CD from Thirsty Ear
Released to promote their album re-issue
The radio edits seem quite brutal. Intros & outros are chopped
on all 3 songs and some chunks edited out totally
Maybe shorter versions made radio play more likely
but it certainly doesn't improve any of the songs
No front cover on the CD and the tray is the press release
