Four On The Floor is an unofficial Duran Duran limited edition compilation album, released in the USA by Big Beat Records during 2001.

About the album Edit

2xCDr set featuring demos and outtakes recorded during the recording sessions for the Wedding Album.

In 1991, Duran Duran retreated to Warren Cuccurullo's London home and Privacy Studio after disappointing sales figures for the Liberty album. The band had just performed at London's Royal Albert Hall and started to record a batch of new songs including "Ordinary World". This song is included as a very early studio recording.

There are also several later stages of "Ordinary World" that incorporate some alternate vocal parts and the use of at least two distinctly different live drum tracks, as well as the original electronic rhythm track providing a fascinating peek into the evolution of the recording over time.

Four On The Floor also includes the finished but completely unreleased song "A Matter of Fact", plus bonus tracks featuring John Taylor and Jonathan Elias.

Limited edition of only 250 copies housed in a DVD box.
