According to the database, commercial 45 copies of Autograph's "Turn up the Radio" run 4:28, while the song is shown with a time of 4:35 on the band's parent LP/CD Sign in Please (RCA 5423). Can anyone shed some light on what accounts for this :07 discrepency in run time between the 45 and LP? (Early fade? Edit? Speed difference?) Chances are, the database will need to be updated to explain this difference.

The 45 runs (4:32) not (4:28) as stated on the record label so the timing difference between the LP and 45 is only :03.

The 45 promo PB-13953 has a 3:46 Short Version and 4:28 Long Version times printed on the label.

Guys, joining us on the Board is the ONE person I know who has more promo 45s/CD singles than I do. Through radio, I have known him for 30 years, although he found the Board on his own. Both his collection and knowledge will be a tremendous asset to the Board. Although he was once a wild DJ, under this name, he has long ago moved on to the engineering side of radio. He is currently very much in demand as one of the top chief engineers in the country, at several different stations. One of them is my alma mater's station, every Wednesday. Smokin' Tom, I will call you Saturday at home, my friend, give you some background on this Board, and catch up on things in general. A warm welcome to you here, sir!

Indeed, welcome, Tom! Jim has been a tremendous resource on this board for information regarding DJ edits, so I imagine you'll have no problems making quick friends on this message board with your vast resources and background. I look forward to more posts from you!

When this song first hit, I bought the 45 and I thought I
remembered it stating it was a special longer mix. I
later bought the LP and I didn't hear much difference, so
I got the rid of the 45.
Since the database shows the LP/45 as being basically the
same version, I figured I recalled wrong about the 45.

I was just on the 45cat database site, and a saw a label
scan of the 45, and it says nothing about the version,
again seeming to confirm I recalled wrong.

BUT, there is also a scan of the picture sleeve, front
and back. On the back of the sleeve it reads "Special
Extended Mix". Aha!

Now I remembered... the intro to the song does indeed
sound extended. The mix is slightly different in the
intro, all the way to about :42 secs, where it sounds
like it splices into the original mix.

So I just played the "DJ 45 Edit" and I notice the guitar
intro before the beat starts is completely different from
the commercial version. It is a 4.5 second intro. The
commercial version has a different 3 sec intro.

So you cannot edit the 45/LP to get the DJ edit. My
theory is that the version on several CD's listed as the
"DJ 45 Edit but :12 longer" may actually be the original
intended LP version.
