There are quite a few 3.52/3.53 versions on Sony-licensed compilations (Movies, 80s etc), Looks like Pop Years: 1986 has it too, I'll get my copy out later to check.
Has this 7'' version of Stacey Q's ''We Connect'' ever found its way on to CD, folks? Don't think it's included on the forthcoming ''Better Than Heaven'' deluxe...
It's a different mix. The drums are drier on the LP version, the 7" has more reverb and sounds larger.The forthcoming Cherry Red Swing Out Sister box set includes a 7" version of Surrender as well as the LP version on It's Better To Travel. Does anyone know how they differ from each other? A UK 45 on YouTube seems to fade slightly earlier, but that surely can't be enough to justify a distinction between the 2?
It is fairly subtle and not exactly a huge difference. It becomes a bit more obvious under headphones when doing a direct A-B comparison. The 7" sounds more open and expansive while the album version sounds slightly more constricted.I've always thought the LP version was the single mix. Both 3.54, both sound the same to my ears. I suppose there could be subtle extra bits on the 7" mix which aren't obvious?

According to Wikipedia the 7" version of Surrender is on this cd.It's funny you should say this because I stanned the single like nobody's business yet never quite got that feel when playing the album. I just assumed by then - 6 months later - I was maybe a bit over it.
For the 45 genius' out there - what is the easy way of identifying the January 1982 reissue of EMI/ver League's re-issue of 'Being Boiled' please? The version on Now Yearbook Extra 82 is 3'50 with a cold ending.
