...some cat from Japan
Getting the hang of this now...if the questions are very hard (like the Blood n Glitter comp) we don't get so many entrants, but if they're as easy as this 'All Saints' competition you go berserk! I guess there is some pretty obvious logic there. As I say, very popular competition this one, as is the current competition for the original private pressing of 'All Saints' that we posted on Friday.
Anyway, you don't want my waffle, you want certainty...erm, I mean the answers and a list of the winners. Here ya go then:
'All Saints' promo competition
I asked you to tell me three different releases that have included the instrumental track 'Crystal Japan'...there were more than only three different 'releases' that contained the track of course, especially if one takes into account releases from different territories around the world...but the formats above from my own collection all include the track, and the formats most of you mentioned are included in the picture: clockwise from bottom left we have:
Up The Hill Backwards/Crystal Japan - Cassette Single - UK RCA 1981
Bowie Rare - Vinyl LP - UK RCA 1982
Up The Hill Backwards/Crystal Japan - 12" Single - USA RCA 1981
Up The Hill Backwards/Crystal Japan - 7" Single - UK RCA 1981
Scary Monsters (as a bonus track) - CD - UK EMI 1992
Crystal Japan/Alabama Song - 7" Single - Japan RCA 1980
These are just the versions illustrated above, so before you write in to ask "what about the Italian Bowie Rare?" etc etc, I allowed all of the versions released as valid answers. I also allowed the original Japanese advert that the track was commissioned for, but while I hear what you are saying regarding NIN's track 'A Warm Place' on their 'The Downward Spiral' album, I'm afraid that wasn't allowed. So, if the ten people below would like to send their real name and address to me at MrTotalBlamBlam@AOL.Com with a subject heading of: 'All Saints' promo competition winner, they will receive their promo forthwith.

Even easier this one, I asked you to name the tracks common to both this issue of 'All Saints' and the 'Christiane F' soundtrack album. Hundreds of you correctly stated that 'V-2 Schneider', 'Sense Of Doubt' and 'Warszawa' are the names of those very tracks. The ten winners below should send their real name and address to me at MrTotalBlamBlam@AOL.Com with a subject heading of: 'All Saints' stock copy competition winner, to receive their CDs .
