I just found a rare version of "Stronger Than Me" and decided to share it! Have you ever heard this version before?

That's cool, it seems like the singing part is the same as the album version, but the instrumental part is slightly different.

Did you find it on youtube? I've never heard this one before!!!

This version is VERY rare. It wasn't uploaded in full on YouTube yet, so I decided to upload it.
It was available for download just in a VERY FEW sites. :)

Does anybody have more information about this rare version of "Stronger Than Me"?

 

Is it fan-made or it's just something that it didn't get released by the record label?

Sorry, It's not a demo, it's not rare.  It's the version which is on the AMY soundtrack album, which is simply the Frank version minus the intro and a little lower (quieter) in the mix.

No, that's not it!

 

This unpopular version can ONLY be found on this link (which is currently down) - http://mp3cc.com/m/1...-me-first-take/

 

You can also see this video (uploaded 5 years ago) which it features that version (at circa 0:42):

This unpopular version?  What is it you are hearing that is so different, both in the first video you posted and the snippet in the second video?

Wearing headphones is the best experience for this version. Maybe you should try that?

Yeah, I've got headphones on. Perhaps someone else can have a listen and comment on this as I'm just not getting it.

I can definitely hear a difference between this one and the album edit, however I'm not sure if this is official or not, particularly because of the use of the same vocal track on both versions - you would have thought that, especially if it were a first take, they would go back and re-record the vocals. I don't know, that's just my two cents.


but now i like to think out loud

you're running with some different crowd

we both know

what it is.

Okay, everyone. I've just found out that this version is NOT official!

 

I've actually found, on some website, the EXACT same instrumental from that rare version as a fan-made karaoke...

 

The person who put Amy's vocals on the karaoke version and claimed it to be an official demo version is a HUGE scammer! Lol...

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

If you want an official unreleased version of "Stronger Than Me", then here is another version of the song with the exact same vocals

(The instrumental mix is slightly different on some parts compared to the album version but it also includes backing vocals)

which somebody got it from the record label and put it up on eBay.

 

*** He also confirmed to me (when I contacted him) that there still exists a lot of un-mastered mixes with the same vocals from that song,

but he doesn't have them sadly.

This is where I found it on eBay:  http://ebay.to/1G6M4qZ

Speaking about "un-mastered", it's worth nothing that the uncompressed LPCM track from the music video of "Take the Box" ("clean" version) is mastered with less dynamic range compression. I wish the whole Frank album was available with a more natural sounding dynamic range. The music video version sounds so much better. Does anyone know of any other tracks with less dynamic compression?
