15 Nov 1995 USA Today: Cindy’s Sweat Suit: Supermodel Cindy Crawford is being sued by Virgin Records for allegedly using a song on her exercise video without permission. The U.S. District Court lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles says that Crawford and her producers used Big Wheels in Shanty Town in the Cindy Crawford Shape Your Body Workout without paying royalties. Virgin says it owns the copyright to the song. No comment yet from Crawford. Later versions of the video lack the Rain Tree Crow track.
