Among these I think the Israeli ones and the one with no mention of country of origin* are genuine, while the Polish and Swiss ones are fake. I may be wrong though.

* there is no mention at all of a country? The text is no very clear in the scan.

This is presumable from Finland. I have seen three copies :

the first one was sold in Ebay during the original collector's thread and was declared fake there.

Second one was sold on a Finnish auction site while I was in Oslo for Bruce show and I lost

it. I found this third copy from a second hand record store in Helsinki.

I contacted the seller of the second specimen and he told me he had worked for a radio

station and he got the records from there. He also had all the other Finnish promo

CDRs on auction at the same time.

While Rocky Ground (Modern Mix) was "hot news" I contacted the marketing manager of

Sony Finland and asked also about this release. She didn't recognize it, but I think she

wasn't handling Bruce when this was released, so she didn't know. I also asked her for

a list of Finnish promoCDRS, but they didn't have that. So a bit of a mystery, but I wonder,

where would a radio station get their records unless from a record company.

...'cause tramps like us keep on rockin' . . . Jyrki

If it came from a radio station, then it's genuine, but then one has to trust the seller that he really got it from a radio station. Any one who wants to sell a promo CDR would say that he got it from a radio station or he worked at one.

But he's probably telling the truth because, as you said, he also had all the other Finnish promo CDRs on auction at the same time.

I added it to the list.

UK (CD5) - 1999 - "Sad Eyes" (COL XPCD 1144) Cardboard sleeve, 2-track, advance promo

This one comes in a cardboard sleeve, and not in a slimline jewel case as I previously wrote. Thank you Steen for the correction.

I assume what you meant to say was "Born To Run"-era picture rather than "BITUSA", and you were probably referring to this:

However, that series (which only took in Bruce's albums from "Born To Run" through "Tunnel Of Love") already was released back in 1995, four years before the "Chimes" EP was reissued internationally, so it obviously couldn't have been included therein. ;)

That answers it
