Seems a good issue! Wonder what the La's track is? If I see it in the shops I'll have a look see...

I'm guessing that's the demo version. It's the only version I know of that's that long.

The Picket version's my favorite, incidentally.

That's a good choice especially as it's not on the LP, it'll be the Lost La's version from the Attic, aye, as its on iTunes and the site Syl linked to says the track times are from iTunes.

I believe the Picket version starts with the aaaah vocals, it isn't that duration; the Attic just guitar.

Interesting, that Discogs says the drummer for that era was Barry Walsh, who was also on the Breakloose release. (And the '86 demos such as IOU had Tony Clarke, Freedom Song had Paul Rhodes - Lee was going through drummers already!)

Aye, the Picket version is ace. Although my preferred version is from the BBC Sessions with the full band and harmonies in place. I do wish it had been done properly in the studio with the monk vocals and all though...
