I was at an old music store earlier today and I damn near had a heart attack when I saw that there was a limited edition vinyl version of 'Amy Winehouse: The Ska EP (2008)' with some amazing live recordings that I haven't found anywhere on the internet, including demo versions of all of her ska covers (Monkey Man, You're Wondering Now, Cupid, and Hey Little Rich Girl that I think aren't even on the internet) Besides this, there are also official instrumentals to all of the aforementioned songs. It was only twenty dollars, it was, however, opened, so not worth as much as I think it could have been, but it's not like I even  planned of selling it anyways. If I can find a way to get the audio onto a computer, I would be more than happy to share with you all. I'm just super happy because I can barely find a regular vinyl. After talking to the owner, I also found out that he made his own vinyl of 'The Other Side of Amy Winehouse'. Not official, but still  awesome. Anyways, it was just an awesome find and I hope that I'm able to share with y'all

Wow! Good for you! So this limited version of this rare "Amy Winehouse: The Ska EP (2008)" has some very rare live recordings and unheard demo versions of her Ska covers? And you have the audios of these rare gems somewhere? Please share them as soon as possible!

That's really great news! Thank you! :)


His message was brutal, but the delivery was kind.

The original itself is rare, but limited edition? It's almost like a dream lol. I'll try to gt the audio from the vinyl and upload it here, it's all just pure gold.

I'd love to, if possible, upload them to YouTube. There was also a recording of her practicing ''Free Nelson Mandela'' for Nelson Mandela's birthday.

Is it the one with the Ska EP and Free Nelson Mandela [Live] on the A side and side B has 6 songs including 2 from Lollapalooza, a duet with The Specials and the deluxe version of Cupid?

No, I have yet to find the original version. I just found out, though, that it's a bootleg and not a special edition. It does still have the live recordings and demos. I need to go back to the store and ask the owner some questions though, because I want to know how he got all of this stuff.

This is partly why I was asking.  Not only is the Ska EP a bootleg, but there's countless slightly different versions of it.  If you could give a tracklisting I could probably upload the tracks for you, for comparison.

 

I wouldn't put too much importance on finding the first release of the Ska EP, it is simply 4 songs lifted from the second CD of B2B and pressed to vinyl.

I love the version of Free Nelson Mandela that she does. It's just her and her acoustic guitar.

I will try my absolute best to do so. Since it was made by the person that I bought it from, I'm almost positive that he has the files from the vinyl. If not, I'm just there's some way I could get the audio on the vinyl on to a computer and share it on here. If not, I'll see if there's a way I could the vinyl copied a bunch of times.

Also, no, that's not it. It's just a close up of Amy's face in the style that it's in on the front cover.
