Just finished reviewing the brand new Mary J. Blige cd titled "Reflections - A Retrospective" and have a couple of questions that I need some help answering. First, for the song "Be Happy" I notice that :07 of the opening ocean sound effects are missing on this cd so can anyone tell me if this is the 45 version? And for the song "No More Drama", it shows up on this cd in a (4:26) edit so where did this version come from?

The 12-inch vinyl single of 'Be Happy' is also the full LP version. A 7-inch vinyl single was not issued.

Speaking of "Be Happy", does anyone know if a short radio edit was ever serviced to radio stations for this song? I would think the 5:47 45/LP version run time would be deemed too lengthy for many stations.

I've never seen a 4:26 edit of this. The only one I have is the [Radio Edit] which clocks in at 4:06.
