get it at target, it comes with 3 extra tracks....,
This review is from: Glee: The Music, Volume 1 (Audio CD)i dont watch the show at all, i found out about these songs after my friend played them for me, and i thought they were pretty good, its a different take on some good songs. like i stated in the title of my review, get it at target cause it comes with 3 bonus songs, which are i wanna sex you up, i could have danced all night, and leaving on a jet plane. since i dont watch the show at all, i dont know or care about what songs are missing really, i will say this, i will get the next volume in december though. i thought gold digger was pretty nifty. what they need to do next is sing some iron maiden, or some black sabbath, now that would be pretty cool. since i like all kinds of music and all, im sure they will sing a heavy metal song or two sometime down the road.

Curious...I want to get the Target version, but the Glee kids were doing an instore on Monday near me (all 8 main kids), and I had to meet them, and in order to get them to sign a CD, I had to buy it from FYE (and Target didn't have it for sale a day early, as sometimes they do, believe it or not)...no bonus tracks...no problem, as usually, if Target's edition (or another store) has bonus tracks, they keep the same booklet. and just have the extra info on the bonus songs either on the back of the CD or under the clear CD tray (on the red background in this case)...I am curious if it was like this with Target's "Glee" soundtrack Vol. 1...does the booklet have extra pages with the info or is the info just under the tray...let me know, as I couldn't go to a Target on Tuesday, as I worked the election...17 hours...so I went yesterday and it was sold out...I figured that...if it's how I hope, I will buy the Target edition and switch booklets, so I have the bonus tracks AND the signed booklet, and I will sell the unsigned same booklet and 17-track edition to a used CD store...that's the plan...meet the kids, have the signed booklet and the bonus tracks all in one.

Hi Larry... to answer your question, the Target edition features the bonus track info & credits within the booklet. They're on the page that, in the standard edition, featured a photo of Ken Tanaka & Finn (that photo isn't in the Target edition at all).

I really appreciate the heads up! I was so disappointed when I didn't see Jayma Mays' version of "I Could Have Danced All Night" on the track list. (Really, she sings one song, but they couldn't put it on the CD?) I'm definitely getting this from Target now.

Yes I found that out...sooooo what I did was I found a copy at a different Target...and I cut the page out of the Target booklet, cut out the bonus track info, & pasted it under the clear CD tray on the red background, top and bottom, with the regular sticker on the left and the Target sticker on the right, under the tray, so it's filled up with stuff...my signatures are clear as a bell, no stickers blocking them...the signed regular booklet (with the pic of Ken Tanaka & Cory) is now included with the Target CD and back cover with stickers & bonus track info.
With the altered Target booklet, and page missing...the opposite page is the one with the "red songs" on one side and "green" songs on the other...I removed it and taped it in the middle (with clear tape), in a very subtle way, between the 2 pages of pics from the show...this works because, when you open the booklet, you see the 2 pics next to each other, Jane Lynch & Matt Morrison on one side, and Dianna Agron & Lea Michele on the other, and the songs on the moved page still come before the songs on the yellow page. The only things missing really are the musician info and the pic of Mark Salling & Kevin McHale, and either the bonus track info or the pic of Ken Tanaka & Cory Monteith...
I'm selling this "version" to a friend of a friend cheap who never saw the show and didn't intend on buying this CD as he didn't see the point of cover songs...this will convince him, he won't notice the altering, and everybody wins.
I just wish Target packaged their version kinda like the way I altered it, with the bonus track info under the tray and the same booklet...what can you do?? My copy is signed by all 8 kids and I have the bonus tracks so I'm happy...I had to buy it twice but I'm getting compensated a little bit.

Thanks for responding! After I posted my msg, I saw the song titles in another comment. I must have glossed over them the first time since they were in all lower-case letters.

I got one from Target, and it didn't come with the bonus tracks, sadly. Just be careful!

The initial Target pressing had the 3 bonus tracks...once they were all gone, they just get the regular ones...those special pressings go fast and become collectors' items, so you have to take advantage the first week, if not the first day...just sayin'.
