OTHER NOTES
This CD was pressed in Europe, Mexico and Japan to promote the Best of 1990 - 2000 compilation as well as the Gangs of New York soundtrack on radio.  The version of the song found on this promo CD is identical to that found on the Best Of compilation.  This is the second promotional printing of The Hands that Built America.  The first pressing was of the soundtrack version, and was pressed in limited numbers for the voting comittees at the Oscar and Golden Globe awards.  There are no current plans for a commercial release of this single.

One version of the promotional singles contained a slightly different mix of Hands. Labelled "The Edit + 2.5 Varispeed" mix, this version of the song is an edit of the version featured on the Best of 1990 - 2000 but is also sped up slightly, and is in a higher key than the regular version.  The keyboards at the beginning are edited out, and the track fades earlier than the album version.
