Great to have this vinyl rip. The CD version of this EP was apparently remixed so as to remove all the more interesting production techniques that Byrne brought to the project following My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. This version is infinitely preferable!

Further to my last post, I notice that these are *not* the timings listed on the scanned label, the much fabled longer versions available only on the Island label in non-US territories. "Loveland" for example is listed on the scanned label as 8:33 but clocks in here at 4:59, the same as other copies. Any one have the extended versions?

thanks for the vinyl rip.
Yes, I have been looking for the extended versions as well.
Might just have to order it on vinyl.
