What were the French thinking?

4 Nov

Ringo Starr’s contribution to the Beatles related 12″ discography is limited but nice (he was a bit of a pioneer with ‘Drowning in The Sea of Love’ during the disco era). I have worked quite hard to come across the handful of his 12″ records that I own. Here is the French 1992 ‘Weigth of the World’ promo (Private Music/BMG 743211086001) backed by ‘After all these years’.

I like this record alot as it seems so unlikely. I really can’t see the point in releasing the promo in this format; it is a MOR song, not a potential club hit, released during the heydays of the cd format. I’d like to know how the French BMG promotion departement reasoned to make the decision.
