Release Date: Summer 1991

Rarity Rating: 5/5 (Very Rare)

Packaging: Standard Plastic Jewelcase With No Front Cover

Notes: This particular release was produced to help promote Blue Lines for the North American market at the time of the album's release.

US Promo CD #2

Catalogue #: PRCD-4381

Release Date: Summer 1991

Rarity Rating: 5/5 (Very Rare)

Packaging: Standard Plastic Jewelcase With No Front Cover

Notes: This particular release was produced to help promote Blue Lines for the North American market at the time of the album's release. While having nothing to do with the release of the Massive Attack E.P, it is included here, since Be Thankful for What You've Got was used afterward to promote the Massive Attack E.P. This disc contains three exclusive remixs of Be Thankful For What You Got that were remixed by American DJ's Chris Stokes and Zyrus Melchor for Teaspoon Productions. It is possible this promo was released to guage the interest in releasing Be Thankful For What You've Got as a single at a later date, for the American market which ultimately would not happen. These remixs appear on no other disc.
