Just to let you know that when WRKO started playing album cuts,
they wanted to play In A Gadda Da Vida, but the 15:00+ time was too much
even for an album cut.  The single at 2:43 was just WAY TOO
short.  So, I cut it down to 9:49 and they aired it.  A WRKO technician
who claimed to know the song by heart (played drums in a band that
covered it) could detect only one edit out of many.  The drum solo was
left intact.  I'd call that a good compromise.
