i just got this album and never realised that the version of fat bottomed girls on gh1 is a single edit. Personally i prefer the gh1 version but that is because its the version ive been listening to for 10 years. But to me the added guitar parts just seem stuck on without needing them? wat you guys think and wat r other queen sigles which were edited for release?

I do like the Jazz version of FBG.

There are queen songs that where edited for single release.

- Fat Bottomed Girls (shorter intro)
- Under Pressure (only the last part)
- I Want It All
- I Want To Break Free (no guitar-solo part)
- Who Wants To Live Forever
- Headlong
- I'm Going Slightly Mad
- One Vision (shorter Intro and Outro)
- You Don't Fool Me (shorter guitar-solo)
- Heaven For Everyone

That are all the ones I can think of right now :)

I never like edited versions for the radio, not with Queen songs or other songs from other bands.

I think it shouldn't take 10 years to get around to buying Jazz

I am an old person.

I remember when the JAZZ album was released and being played on North American FM stations. Originally, Fat Bottomed Girls segued into Bicycle Race this was how itt was played on Radio.

I was lucky enough to see Queen on the Jazz tour in 1978. In the stage performance they also played the two songs linked together.

Even back then we fans were puzzled, but there was no explanation for it.

For the best of both worlds, record the first 52 seconds of the GH version, then start at 1:30 of the LP for the rest. That way you end up the crashing finish, and get to skip the rather boring (IMO) early part.

Also...FBG was played in the latter half of the concerts, while BR was part of the early medley.
