I apologise if you're kidding and I've totally misconstrued you. If not, however, this is insane. The single mix of I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing is two minutes longer than the album version and the mix is reconstructed from scratch with an entirely different arrangement. Aside from the Introspective cuts, it's the most they've ever changed a track for single release.MD wrote:As for I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing, the single and album versions seem to be very similar and I really can't hear much difference
Its 4:29 accordiong to my iTunes directory, which was ripped directly from the US disc....i remember hearing back then that the US is just an early fade...One of the crowd wrote:Ramzy,
Believe someone made a "US Version" of PopArt and included a home made edit [04:29] of I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing as the picture in the file is that of the Very Further Listening CD!
Can someone with an actual copy of US PopArt confirm the track time for I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing, please?
sorry to resurrect an old thread, but recently I was making a compilation and sorting through the various versions of "I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing" so this issue has intrigued me again. the differences between the original beatmasters 7" mix and the version that ended up on the UK "pop art" is still a little confounding so I went scouring through the forum archives to get some more information but it appears as though the matter still hasn't been entirely cleared up yet (unless it has somewhere else, in which case I apologize.)York Minster wrote: Can we clear this up? What is the version of I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing on the UK and what is it on the US? The version I have heard is close to the single version, but with subtle differences. Are we saying that there is a version on some PopArts that is quite different from the single version?
yeah this poll happened before I knew about this forum, though I would have voted for "discography." pitchfork (oddly enough) summed it up rather nicely in their a-typically positive review of "pop art":Radiophonic wrote:I can't remember voting in this poll but I see I voted PopArt. I wonder if I mis-ticked?
Discography is the better compilation. If they wanted to update the collection they should have just done a 'Discography 2.0'
Interesting concept! I like it!Radiophonic wrote:This is how they should update Discography every ten years or so. Neil and Chris ageing like Like The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Who wouldn't buy that?
