Gun Money (re-mix)

Picture
1 Nov 1982
Duke Records
The Bottom Line:

12" single with a long version that is in fact shorter.

Three tracks:

  1. Gun Money (remix)/ Long version (4:54)
  2. Gun Money/ short remix (3:50)
  3. Hiss On The Tape (3:59)

The normal version of Gun Money with 5:01 still is longer than this 'long version'. Something strange was going on as there also was a 'revised label' sheet included in the sleeve:

******** SPECIAL BULLETIN ***********

REVISED LABEL COPY FOR "GUN MONEY" BY JOHN MARTYN ******

BOTH VERSIONS ARE:

PRODUCED BY: SANDY ROBERTON

REMIXED BY: JOHN LUONGO

RE-ENGINEERED BY: JAY MARK

TIMINGS ON THE B-SIDE ARE:

"GUN MONEY" (Short Version): 3:59

"HISS ON THE TAPE": 3:55

My guess is that some record company official phoned a secretary to correct the track timings. The message that the Gun Money track was shorter probably was misinterpreted as bearing reference to the Short Version.
