Hi Bernhard,

It appears to me that the CD single 2 was edited to make it less than 10
minutes (running time 9.59! on my player), but I can't think of a reason
why.  Cost less to press?  Or is it so it's not classed as an EP.  Anyone?

Agree that it's disappointing that the live sota has been savaged.

Apart from that, delighted to have some new HW fare. Roll on 12th September.
