A Change Is Gonna Come was released on the German soundtrack album Zabou (The Crack Connection) in 1987. For promotion, it was also released as a 7“ promo single with the Joe Cocker title song „Now That You’re Gone“ on the a-side and A Change Is Gonna Come from Tina on the b-side. It’s the original studio version, which is only available on this promo and the soundtrack album for the movie. The version on the sampler Music of Quality and Distinction Vol. 2 and The Collected Recordings is remixed. A live version was also released as a single in 1988, taken from the album Live In Europe.
