Notes: Cut down 9 minutes from a near 15 minute masterpiece is not an easy task. It starts directly where Mark begins to sing the beautiful lyrics then after the first guitar solo a cut takes the song directly to the staccato just before the beginning of the final solo. Of course, the final solo is cut aswell and takes us to the original fade out… We can talk about sacrilege here, but hey, at least you had a fifteen minute song on a jukebox machine
