I just got finished listening to this over-the phone, and this is a Brian
Matthews programme as Mike had thought it would be. It does not contain a
second track on the B-side, and it has a differing intro where Stacia is
mentioned, and the Silver Machine appears to cut-in already in progress.....
For the moment we are assuming this is an edited version of SM......
