"Someday Baby" - one- and two-track promo CD and CD-R singles, Columbia (no catalogue number) (USA), Aug 2006; Columbia USSM10603929/USSM10603299 (Poland), 28 Aug 2006; Columbia LC 00162 (Germany)/Columbia USSM10603929 (Finland), Sep 2006:
Thanks to Hans Seegers for clarifying that there are at least two different versions of the German one-track single - Columbia LC 00162 is a regular CD in a plain white sleeve, although Gerd Rundel's copy came in the Columbia red/white card sleeve illustrated (which is copyrighted 2001 so may not be the right sleeve). For a Jul 2006 US two-track promo CD single (timed at 3:07), see above. The CD-R formerly listed here which comes in a clear plastic sleeve with a printed insert contains the full album version of the song and is now listed in International Singles - 2000s, as is the Australian CD-R promo.


US promo CD scan by Hervé from France

R-0741-2 Someday Baby - edited version of track (3:03) from Modern Times (the album version is 4:55)

Eerik Hakala has a copy distributed in Finland with a different disc style numbered USSM10603929 (Columbia has no manufacturing plant in Finland so it must have been manufactured in Austria for distribution in Finland - the sticker is from Teosto, the Finnish music copyright organisation). Hervé from France has a 2-track CD-R from Poland where the edit has catalogue number USSM10603929 and the album version has catalogue number USSM10603299. The edit is timed at 3:07 on the US and Polish releases, 3:03 on LC 00162 and 3:09 on the Finnish copy, but I think they're all the same edit.

Thanks to Peter Coulthard for finding the German promo on eBay and to Ronald Born for further information and the CD scan. Thanks to Hervé from France, Eerik Hakala, Hervé from France and Gerd Rundel for further information and scans.
