Looking for that one version of "More Than I Can Bear"?

Probably a top five Basia question is: what is with the with-Basia version of the Matt Bianco song "More Than I Can Bear" not being on CD, and where can I get it? Thankfully Andrzej noticed that it appears on Marek Niedzwiecki zaprasza do Smooth Jazz Cafe 5 (2003, Universal Music Poland). So you have to order it on import, but it does exist!

Alternately, you can stick with the cassette or LP version of Whose Side Are You On-- the CDs are the only one that contains the weird de-Basia-fied version (actually the original mix!)

    Hmmm, mine does not have the Basia version. I wonder which edition of "the best of" you have.

    I think that's the CD I have and, alas, it hasn't the lovely vocal-harmony intro. I've been yearning for a digital copy of this version for years (hearing them sing it live a few years ago only made my quest more definite). The import "Marek Niedzwiecki zaprasza do Smooth Jazz Cafe 5" is quite pricey. Big sigh.
