On my promo 45, one side has the same listed and actual (4:40) version found on the commercial 45, but the other side has the title shown as "Fanfare/Chloe", with a listed time of (6:06), but an actual time of (6:03). In the database, his box set has the song presented in this same longer fashion, albeit with a running time of (6:19).

Ah, so I guess it can be said then that the "Fanfare/Chloe" track appearing on Elton John's To Be Continued box set (MCA 10110) is the long DJ version but :13 longer?

"Chloe" happens to be one of my personal favorite ballads from Elton John... I'm still waiting to find a CD release where the previous selection on the disc doesn't bleed into the beginning of the song.

There is a minuscule silent pause between the beginning of "Chloe" and the "Fanfare." If I'm not mistaken, you can easily chop off the fanfare and have the 45 version.

BTW, you do all know that the 45 version of "Kiss the Bride" is on the common import "Very Best of Elton John," don't you? That's the two disc set with the blue-tinted cover.

The LP version on "Too Low for Zero" segues in from the previous track, and has what sounds like a "Four!" countoff on the first drum note, which is not on the 45 version. The LP-length version on US compilations simply cuts that first drum note: "buh-BUH," rather than "buh-buh-BUH" as it is on the single version.

Brian: I know you're talkin' Geffen-era Elton here, but have you ever had any luck finding a 45 version on CD, import or domestic, for "Bite Your Lip?" It hit #28 on Billboard, but it must've been a Cashbox stiff because Pat has no database listing for it. You have proven SO adept at tracking down the elusive "superstar single versions" for Madonna, MJ, Prince, Hall & Oates - who better to ask?

Brian:

I don't have the To Be Continued box set, so I never realized that there is a slight pause in the medley between "Fanfare" and "Chloe". That said, it sounds like what I've been looking for has actually been on CD all along, so thanks for passing along that bit of info, Brian! I've heavily resisted purchasing the To Be Continued set though because I keep waiting and hoping that a more comprehensive box set of Elton John's hit singles will be released someday. I hate how I currently would need to buy over a dozen of his CDs just to get all the Top 40 hits!

I haven't, Jim. The 45 label claims it's a remix, so I don't think you can just fade the LP version to get the 45 version. Though if it is a remix, it's a very slight one.

i agree.....if it IS a remix, it is very slight....i've accepted the lp fade to be pretty darn close to the 45 version....

"Bite Your Lip" is definitely a remix, a damn good one too, by Tom Moulton. It makes the song a little more rockin' by lowering the mix of the congas and punching up the guitars a little bit.

I just reviewed "Bite Your Lip," both the LP and 45 versions, and I agree with Andrew on this one. The 45 is a slight remix, although there doesn't appear to be any new instrumentation. You can tell right from the start, because that first guitar riff is much louder on the 45. Also, the drums are very loud on the LP version, but they are without question farther back in the mix on the 45.
