Additional Notes

This from the excellent 45 Worlds:

The initial UK pressings of this LP have longer versions of 3 tracks:

A1. Loveland (8.33 version 1) (5.00 version 2)
B1. Cake (7.45 version 1) (5.46 version 2)
B2. Throw That Beat In The Garbage Can (5.46 version 1) (4.30 version 2)

The long versions of Loveland and Cake were issued on a promo 12" single in France.

None of the long versions have never been issued on CD.

The UK CD replicates the second vinyl pressing, the US CD (coupled with Party Mix!) remixes all the tracks. This third version has never been issued on vinyl.
