What the story should be behind this cd?
It looks like an ordinary (but surely rare) promo release from Canada. Interesting is that this song was never released as single in Canada so maybe this one was released to promote Older album but why 3 months after Older release? Maybe it was planned to release it as single in Canada but was cancelled, also interesting is cat. number, usually Dreamworks in USA used 5-digit number beginning with 59

There are a few more rare, not often seen, promo cds around, promos released in 1990ies, not all promos are well-known but most of them. This one seems to be a lesser-known.
If you have bought it 20 years ago so its most likely an original one, it would be difficult to say if you have found/bought this cd these days since there are many fakes around.

btw, are you really sure you bought it 1996? label looks like on some fake cds I have seen lately.
Also some printed text passages do not match other promo cds from this era and region.

Default Spinning the wheel Canada 1 - track

Hi Thank´s for all kind answers from you all... and Yes i bought it 20 years ago in London and this place did get a lot of promo cd´s from Us and Canada at that time.When i saw it it was already reserved and the person never picked it up. i waited for 3 days...then i paid 20 uk pound for it.
I have asked some collectors from Usa and Canada and they could not belive it exist until they saw it.
And it´s 100% genuine and a fantastic piece from my Older collection!
I have some more odd items as well.

i got an exiting email from GM collector Scott in Vancouver lately and he confirms that this Spinning the wheel cd single from Canada was rare from the beginning only a low amount of this promo was sent out to main cities in Canada.Scott have had heard about it´s exist but never seen a copy in all this years until my picture was shown.Amazing news!

My question to Webmaster is.. if this can be one of the rarest unknown cd-singles with George?

Based on your information on this cd single it seems to be one of the less known promo cd singles,
still wondering why it was released as promo cd in Canada, this single was never released there and if they wanted to promote Older album they could easily release more known songs as promo like Jesus to A Child, Fastlove or even Star People.

Default Spinning the wheel Canada 1 - track promo cd single

Yes i agree with you and some stations in Usa and Canada had the Older Usa Instore sample cd DRMD-A-5000 .Or acetates that was sent out in small amounts from Dreamworks.

Anyway i think it is one of the rarest items from Older album because no more copy seems to exist or have survived after 20 years.

There is several rare items from Older album Australia 4-track Older album sampler CDRP 377 a few of them survived and the rarest of them have the picture cover inlay with release date May 13 th.

Australian 4 - track "Older" album sampler CDRP 377 1996 came with a picture sleeve
and it is extremely rare looks like album cover with printed: Release date May 13th in white really beautiful issue.
