The Background/Random Info

This CD was released exclusively in Europe and was the lead-off single from Cold Roses. Both B-sides - "So Hot, So Cold" and "Operator Operator" are rockers that sound nothing like the songs on Cold Roses, but instead more like outtakes from Rock n' Roll or the unreleased Pinkhearts album. Unfortunately despite a great A-side, this is one of my least favorite singles in the Ryan Adams catalogue. Both songs sound like haphazardly thrown together demos, that Ryan wrote in five minutes and quickly decided to release. These tracks were later released as bonus cuts on the Japanese versions of the album.
