Demo missing from the Mustique disc

As has widely been reported, Trip Inside (Be Here Now) is missing from the Mustique disc, instead there is an unknown instrumental in it's place which isn't from the Mustique sessions and to me doesn't even sound like Oasis.

One theory is that there's a short drum sample at the start from Honky Tonk Woman by The Rolling Stones and possibly Oasis didn't have clearance to release it with the sample, but the North American itunes has this track on it, everywhere else has the instrumental.

No-one has issued any statement regarding this or if it's gonna be fixed, Sandbag are saying they only distribute the items, they don't make them, they only sell them and there's been no help from the Admin on here either.

I got my box set on time on friday but it was damaged and also the lyric sheet that came with it was a print of the original lyrics, not handwritten as the advert seems to suggest, I could've bought the box set from Amazon a few weeks ago for £89 with free postage and done without the lyric sheet instead of paying £110 for it on here.

Add to the fact that the download code doesn't work either and what we have is a monumental mess to say the least.

The guitar riff on this track sounds very much like Talk Tonight. Curious.

I didn't even get the printed lyric sheet of 'Stand By Me'. Total rip off.

Just registered to post my comment on here.

I emailed management yesterday and received this reply:

We have spoken with the management company and they have confirmed that the track listing is correct and is not faulty - this is how it’s intended to be. The track should be 3.35. Therefore, we can assure you that you have received the correct audio. It is an instrumental track called ‘Trip Inside’.

If you are dissatisfied with this product please contact Oasisinet and they will be happy to arrange a refund.

Kind Regards,
Ignition Team


A week after this remaster came out, there's still no official explanation from management/record label about why this release got a week delyaed and why this demo has been replaced.
If my copy has the correct audio like mentioned in the email I received, people who got the Noel sung Trip Inside (Be Here Now Demo) must have received the "incorrect" audio, therefore shouldn't they get refund? Also running time on my booklet says it's 4:48,not 3:35.
Everyone knows now that there's 2 different copies of these demo's are floating around all over the world.
An clear and honest official statement from management/label is highly appreciated.

I just spoke to a girl on the phone from Ignition who claims not to know anything about the track change or that there are promos with the correct track on it, she said all the details about what is on it are finalized between the label and management.

Strange that another girl from management said yesterday that the label decide, everyone is passing the buck onto someone else, absolutely disgusted by this, I bought all formats but it was pointless really.
