On the Hard To Find 45's on CD Vol. 3 CD, the version of Cyril Stapleton's 'The Children's Marching Song' is the same recording as the 45, but on the CD it fades in a few seconds sooner and fades out much later.

Paul on my 45 (London 1851, matrix number DRF-25278-T-2) the introduction fades in exactly at the same point as on the cd Hard To Find Oldies Vol. 3 but you are right, the ending on the cd is :21 longer than the 45.

I believe ERIC Records' excuse for that was to show that they were able to get the song from the original session tape, rather than a disc dub (im assuming the song had been on cd in the past dubbed from a 45?).

Live in stereo.

Does anyone have "The Children's Marching Song" on an original LP release? I'm curious to know what's the LP run time.

Our reason for not fading the song where the 45 faded was that the stereo mix provided virtually the entire song. I remember being irritated as a child when the song faded after "This old man, he played seven." IMHO, that was an illogical place to fade the song, particularly when they included the instrumental bridge, and I suggested to Bill Buster that anyone who wanted it to fade where the 45 faded could do so themselves. To provide LESS than what was on the 45 would have been to cheat the customer. To provide MORE gives the customer options. He agreed, and so we used the full-length stereo master. I don't believe it was ever issued on vinyl, at least I've never found it on a vinyl LP.

10 years later...

Is the first time stereo issue of this on the 1999 Eric CD "Hard To Find 45s On
CD (Volume 3) The Mid Fifties"? Can't seem to find an LP it was on.

Also, I found a link to a mono version, that doesn't fade in the same way as our
stereo version - it starts louder. How did the 45 start?
