Muscle Museum EP

Hi there, I have a question. I recently bought the Muscle Museum EP. Now I saw pictures on Google where some EPs were numbered. Mine isn't. Does that mean that they rereleased the EP after the first limited edition (which would be sad for those who have a numbered edition, which isn't as exclusive as they thought it would be)?

the MM EP numbered version was limited to 999 copies.

the copies that aren't numbered are promo versions. there are a couple different versions floating around. most promo copies have retained a "Taste Media" sticker on the back of the case; others have lost it over the years. some copies got no sticker at all.

i'd have to look at photos to see which version you acquired.

in any event, by all accounts, there were only a couple hundred promo copies (max) made in total; so, even though the numbered version sells for more on the open market, an unnumbered promo version (which is actually rarer in terms of number of copies)...sells for (oftentimes) quite a bit less! such is the crazy power of a little sticker with handwritten numbers on it...

Wow, thank you for this information. I actually have one with a Taste Media sticker that does indeed say Promational Copy Not for Sale, which I find super awesome. Just one more question though. You say there are a couple of different versions of the promo cd. Does that mean that some have other tracks on them?

no, the tracks are the same.

there's a UK promo variant, where the disc itself is "splotchy" blue and has MUSE in red lettering on it (along with the Dangerous records logo)...

...and then there's a German promo variant, where the disc itself almost looks like a generic, plain-looking CDr with plain black lettering + logos on it. it says "Motor Music GmbH" on the top of the face of the disc. the German version is far rarer than the UK one.
