Other Editions[edit]

Brunswick also released a 13-track edition in discrete 4-channel Quadraphonic as a 7 ½ ips Reel-To-Reel with the catalog number BRU J 14184. This version left off the following three songs: "Give It Away", "The Coldest Days Of My Life (Part 2)", or "24 Hours Of Sadness". This shortened version of the compilation used the same 16 disc front cover art as the standard LP release. [3]
