Reading about the totally different tracklisting on the cassette version of City to City just now (look, it’s my day off, don’t judge me) I was reminded of my mate Giff’s recent purchase of the original UK vinyl version of Crowded House’s debut album, which someone at EMI (unbelievably) thought would sound better if it didn’t start with – side one, track one – Mean to Me. Then I remembered that Snowy White out of Thin Lizzy plays the solo on Pink Floyd’s Pigs on the Wing but – get this – only on the 8 Track version! I wonder if any of our correspondents can recall similar anomalous format-related A&R diversions which might delight the, ahem, Massive?

The small but perfectly formed collective will meet next on Friday 6th March at Blue’s Smokehouse BBQ gaff in Bracknell. All welcome although vegetarians may have a problem with finding something to eat.
Be there or be somewhere else etc
