This intimate illustration gives an exclusive snapshot of how those songs germinated and developed, from loose, rough and ready ideas, into fully formed arrangements.CD4 – 87 VersionsKicks off with four brand new remixes made especially for this set, followed by four tracks from their Japanese “1987 Versions” mini-album, including 1987 re-recorded versions of ‘Standing In The Shadows’ and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac classic, ‘Need Your Love So Bad’. This disc ends with the 1988 radio mix of ‘Here I Go Again’ and the single version of ‘Give Me All Your Love’.DVDAll four hit videos from the album are featured; Still Of The Night, Here I Go Again, Is This Love and Give Me All Your Love - all restored with pristine, 5.1 sound.
