questions about the FUSE album
I'm hoping one of the CT experts here can shed some light on the various CD editions of the self-titled Fuse album.

From what I've read on Discogs.com there have been four different releases of this album on CD.
They are:

Japan    1996  (ESCA 7624) w/lyrics in Japanese and English.
U.S.       2001 (55018-2)    w/two bonus tracks & liner notes taken from Mike Hayes CT book.
Sweden 2014 (GEM 119) w/same two bonus tracks & live pic on the back cover.

But there is also what seems to be a pirated version out there with the product code HF 9520.

Does anyone know what year this was produced and also, am I missing any other reissues of this album?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

 The late 60's pre-CT band Rick & Tom were in. 
 They put out one self-titled album that has been reissued many times on CD.

I would love to see them rework one (or all) those songs... I wasn't aware the re-releases came with bonus tracks... Great. Now I gotta go find em (Unless someone has em handy). Mine is recorded straight from my vinyl copy.

RE: questions about the FUSE album
I really like "Across The Skies"....Young guys at the time. Love the swirling keyboard sound...The singer had a lower range(kinda like Blood, Sweat, and Tears). I love hearing  this and then seeing how Rick's writing evolved. He always has music floating around in his head. Songwriting is so overlooked with Cheap Trick by the media. Having 3 guys with ideas in a band and then bounce them off each other is the way they make it rock. That process is the seperation to great music that we hear in it's final form. Most bands have 2 decent songs per CD...Cheap Trick usually has at least 4-5 good ones....

Listening to FUSE is a must

I've got the original album release and 45 on vinyl, always enjoyed it. Too bad their second album was never released.

I don't think I knew about a second album....I gotta do more research!
