That's a shame, I was really hoping for the tracks from the On The Loose EP. Oh well, it would at least be worth buying if it's the original version of Rock The Night, although it would seem odd if they included that and not the original On The Loose or Broken Dreams. Also, 'B-Side Remix'? I didn't know Rock The Night was ever used as a b-side, or have I just missed something?
It would have been nice if they'd included some different live tracks that we hadn't heard before, but they're almost certainly the Hammersmith '87 ones unfortunately.
Europe doens't own the rights to their back catalogue as far as I know. Not yet anyway. So they can only watch and see what Epic/Sony does with their songs. In this case; they've licensed it to Rock Candy Records who release another uninteresting re-release (remastered? Well let's hear that first) of THAT album.
Rotterdam '89 / Rotterdam '92 / Lokerse Feesten Festival (Lokeren) '04 / Antwerp '04 / Tilburg '04 / Hardenberg '05 / Schwung Festival (Roeselare) '05 / Arrow Rock Festival (Biddinghuizen) '07 / Bochum '07 / Bospop Festival (Weert) '08 / Sweden Rock Festival (Solvesborg) '09 / Amsterdam '10 / Bochum '12 / Stockholm '14 / London (2x) '15 / Enschede '15 / London '16 / Utrecht '16 / CityRock Festival (Leeuwarden) '17 / Tilburg '18 / Veenhoop festival (de Veenhoop) '19
Ultimately uninteresting to us, but they are probably trying to target the mid-level fans who wouldn't necessarily buy this, but will with the extra tracks because they think they are "rarer" than they really are.
