the truth about rio

Ask Katy

Hi Katy. How come the versions of Hungry Like the Wolf, My Own Way, Hold Back the Rain and Lonely in YOur Nightmare are different on RIO are different on the CD from the record album? Thanks , Tom

HI TOM. GOOD QUESTION AND NICK IS HERE TO ANSWER IT:

"IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUERY -THERE IS IN FACT 3 OR 4 SLIGHT VARIATIONS IN THE EARLY VINYL VERSIONS. WHEN RIO WAS FIRST TRANSFERED TO CD, ONE OF THE LATER VINYL VERSIONS WAS USED AS A MASTER, EXPLAINING WHY YOU HAVE HEARD DIFFERENT VERSIONS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT RIO IS BEING RE-ISSUED AND RE-STORED TO ITS FORMER GLORY IN SPRING 2001 ON EMI AND I AM PERSONALLY OVERSEEING IT TO INSURE THAT IT IS IN FACT THE SAME MUSIC AS WHAT WAS ON THE ORIGINAL RIO ALBUM. THANKS FOR THE QUESTION!"
