Milli Vanilli ‎– Girl You Know It's True

Notes:
There are at least four confirmed versions of the North American "Girl You Know It's True" CD album (it's unknown the status of the cassettes and vinyl pressings, although, per Billboard, Arista Records deleted the vinyl edition of the album on November 1989 due to high returns on that configuration). At this point, it is also unknown if all four pressings made it to Canada; the first pressing was certainly released in Canada.

It may be hard to tell which you have just by looking at them. 4 of the 10 tracks are different: "Baby Don't Forget My Number" (appearing originally in a 6:28 version, then edited down to 4:16), "More Than You'll Ever Know" (originally 4:00, later 4:32), "Take It As It Comes" (originally 3:41, later 4:15), and "I'm Gonna Miss you (originally 3:57, finally 4:24).

The four pressings:
1. The original first pressing has "11591-1" in the inner metallic ring and is 44:15 minutes long and it includes the 12" Subway Mix Edit of "Baby Don't Forget My Number". It was released in North America (United Stated and Canada) before the single release of "Baby Don't Forget My Number", on March 8, 1989.
2. The second pressing "11591-2" is 43:09 minutes long and it includes the Album Version of "Baby Don't Forget My Number" (labeled as such on the North American release of the single). It was released in North America AFTER the single release of "Baby Don't Forget My Number".
3. The third pressing "11591-3" is 43:09 minutes long and it's almost identical to the second pressing "11591-2", obviously released before the release of the "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You" single.
4. The fourth pressing "11591-4" is 43:36 and it's the final pressing of the album. It includes the Single Version of "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You" although the track keeps its original album title, simply "I'm Gonna Miss You". The previous three pressings include the Album Version of the track.

Additionally, the record club pressings clock at 43:09.

Booklet & back tray list the songs in the wrong order, and the track lengths printed on the disc face don't match the actual songs.
