Sarah Brightman

[CD-cover] Classics -- other versions

In November 2001 Sarah's CD Classics -- follow the link for details -- was released outside Europe. Again, it appears, different countries are getting (slightly) different versions of a CD by Sarah, which is very confusing and rather frustrating for the fans.

Here is a list of versions I have heard of from visitors of my pages or found by me somewhere on the Web.

Japanese version (released 2001):
Has the 15 songs from the original Classics but with songs 2 and 6 exchanged: Lascia ch'io pianga appears second and La Wally sixth.
Additionally there is a bonus track:
            (recorded live in Europe)

Korean version (released 2001):
This is a Korean-only release with 16-track. It has the 15 songs from the original Classics plus a bonus track:
   16.   LA CALIFFA
            from: La Luna
plus bonus promo-only 2.5" x 3.5" mirror with album artwork on reverse, as it says on
Chinese version (released 2002?):
Advertised on eBay was [now gone]:
RARE Sarah Brightman Classics 24K GOLD PICTURE CD release in China.
which is a Chinese bootleg CD, not an official CD, Christian Bernard wrote me.
