Many ECW fans in the United States were aware of the 1998 release of “ECW: Extreme Music”, the CD album with Sandman on the front cover (click here to see more about that album). A thank you needs to go out to ECW fan Mike Juliano of Horror Pain Gore Death Productions for reminding us that there was a 1999 European version of this album, but it had differences with the US release.
