What was the original bitrate of this? Were all tracks released as 320 kbps mp3s?

Track 10 Just Like Heaven Demo is not the same as the one on KMKMKM unless my ears are broken?

I would add that Track 15 Friday I'm In Love - Live sounds identical (albeit a brighter mix) to the version on the Show live album, which was allegedly recorded in Michigan, so could also be wrongly titled
