Comments :  

The Master contains later overdubs. The original unedited Master Take 1 went for 7:59. It was edited down to 5:47 for the original album release. The first 1971 single was edited further down to 3:15. The second 1985 single was edited differently to 4:24. The first full version release came on "Memories Of Christmas", but this also had an insert mix placed around half way. It wasn't until "Reconsider Baby" that the original undubbed studio jam was finally released, even though this was slightly shorter at 7:16.
