Annotation

This is the re-release with the alternate version of Downtown

Note, this is not the same as the other version of Girl Talk listed in MB. Although the release date is still 1990 on the cover, this was released no earlier than 1992. Amazon and other retailers list 1994 as the release year, and that is probably the best estimate of the actual release date that exists. This version contains a re-recorded version of Downtown. This version of Downtown was recorded in 1992 to be included on that Japanese release of Girl Talk, and would be the first single there. The other version of Girl Talk includes the orignial version of Downtown recorded in 1990. Both versions share the same catalog number. They can be differentiated in two ways, 1) the track length of track 10, Downtown, and 2) the production credit that on this release reads "Produced by Peter Moore Except Downtown Produced by Holly Cole Trio".
