I know, it's unbeliveable but Silver Moon were also released as a single CD! ! ! ! ! ! It must be an ultrarare item which I have never seen any sign of (not even in official discographies or listings) apart from my trip once to the Virgin Megastore in London in ca. 1991. There was a large sell out of D.S. related issues only on mini-CD single format. I've bought the Forbidden colors, Pop song, Words with the shaman, Rain Tree Crow - Black water, and also Ghosts and Art of parties from Japan and I've missed to buy the rest because Silver Moon lacked any addition to the album versions and I never thought it will be an ultrarare item. Believe it or not that's the same with the Taking the veil single CD (with 1 remix version)! ! ! ! ! I saw them both!!
