on the sheer heart attack cd track 4 is flick of the wrist and track 5 is lily of the valley. no problems there. but lily of the valley starts with the word "had" from the "baby youve been had" line. has that been done correctly, or should the word "had" be at the end of flick of the wrist? and does that differ from the vinyl version?

Yes, it has been done correctly. This is how it was supposed to be. Kind of segue...

Stand-alone versions also exists and were released on different singles.

The correct way would be to make the change after the guitar note, but since the piano starts before then, they always chose the wrong location. I believe (without checking) that the 2001 remaster and 1991 Hollywood versions both start the next track with all of "baby you've been had", which is totally wrong.

Best way to correct it is to make your own copy and put the transition where you want it ;)

LOL, on the vinyls, the song starts wherever you want to put the needle!

Yep the 2001 remaster is also wrong, but the 1994 uk remaster started on the word..(baby youve been)..track change - had.

I like the way they did that with all 3 songs on that album - TF/FOTW/LOTV

I think they do it with LOTG and SCC? Been ages since I heard the album :(

Peace
