From the Goldmine 08 Jan '83


"The whole side three bit with the orchestra all got shortened radically. Other songs -- `Run Like Hell,' was chopped to bits, really. Whole chunks. One was concentrating then on vinyl. It wouldn't matter so much today, but with vinyl, there was a finite limit of about 21 minutes a side. Every extra minute, you lost a db, one db of level when it's being played on the radio. Not so much here, where they compress the shit out of it, but also [the] signal-to-noise level gets worse and over 25 minutes you're beginning to suffer quite distinctly. So, our objective was to get it short enough to be able to get it onto two albums, and some things suffered for that."
