Hardline bonus track......not happy!!!

Just downloaded the Hardline bonus track (thanks Andrew!) and the fact that things like that don't make general release albums pisses me off. I bought the Hardline album years ago as it had reached "classic" status according to a lot of scribes. I disagree and (although it's an above average album),would not rate it anywhere near being a classic album. I have probably listened to it 4 or 5 times since I've had it and find more than half the tracks pretty standard and rather un-melodic. (eg Life's A Bitch...how can this be classic??). Doesn't come close to what Neal Schon has done with other side projects (eg Jimmy Barnes) Anyway,I'm straying from the point I'm trying to make.

I've just downloaded what I DO consider to be a very good track ("Love Leads The Way") and it's the only track I'm missing from the album I forked out my money for. At least thanks to Andrew I can listen to it on my computer in mp3 format,but I don't see why only the Japanese market should have access to what,in my opinion,would have to be one of (if not THE) best tracks on the album. Seems to be the same with the latest Journey Album too.Why do the record labels feel obliged to do this for the Japanese market??

Anyway,I'll stop rambling. Does anyone agree/disagree with what I have said here??
