    RE: It Bites – Whole New World.
    It’s interesting to see that this box set features alternative versions of some of “The Big Lad In The Windmill” tracks as were featured on the Japanese reissue from a few years ago. “I Got You Eating Out Of My Hand” is 30 seconds longer (6:08 compared to 5:38 on the original UK CD) and “Wanna Shout” is shorter at 3:13 (3:30 on original UK CD).
    I’ll still need to hold on to the original CD for the different versions.
