I was wondering if anyone could provide a good sounding file of Mariah Carey's "Can't Let Go" in it's single version mix (Edit).

I'd really appreciate it!! :)

Now, why didn't I know, after all these years, that the US single was an edit? Not sure if it's a different mix, but fortunately I do have the edit version on an import of "I'll Be There."

There's a mix difference as well. Toward the end, some of the screechy high singing has been mixed out.

The beginning of the 45 version is different from the LP version too.

I never really think about variations for her recordings as for the most part, the original LP mixes were used for single releases. Other early Mariah variations include:

- a promotional Edit of "I Don't Wanna Cry", commercial release uses the full LP version

- the single mix of "Someday" is the dramatically different New 7" Jackswing by Shep Pettibone

- "Make It Happen" was released in [choppy] edited form

- The aforementioned "I'll Be There" single version


I have "Someday" and "Make It Happen" if anyone needs help with either of them. :)

There were 45s for both the LP version and the New 7" Jackswing versions of Someday, which was unusual for 1991...

Drat! I came awfully close to replicating the 45 version, but as noted above, Mariah's high vocals in the last few seconds are removed for the 45.

Here are instructions for creating an almost-right version of the 45, in case you want to come close (timings from Emotions CD):

Remove the first 26 seconds of the LP version.
Keep 0:26.0-0:58.5.
Remove the 16 beats from 0:58.5-1:10.3.
Keep 1:10.3-4:27.7 (end).
Unfortunately, the mix difference shows up at 4:05 in the LP version, to the end. High, squeaky vocals removed for the single.

Your mixdown would have an edit at 0:33 and would have a mix difference with the LP starting at 3:28.

Rats.

By the way, the US 45 has a printed time of 3:49. My copy of the single version from the TM Century library runs 3:49.

To finally upgrade from my cassingle and mp3, I purchased an "I'll Be There" CD single that was supposed to contain the Edit version of "Can't Let Go" and after weeks of waiting for it to arrive, I was burned by a seller who used the wrong cat #/description. (This has happened multiple times this year alone and from a variety of different sellers and sites. Ridiculous!)

Anyway, if anyone can help out it be a great help!

I swear I heard a version of this song on the radio that opens with Piano (or keyboard, maybe?) but I've never seen it on any CD.
Basically, if you took the first 24 seconds off the intro of the single version, you would have what I remember hearing. I made an
MP3 of it years ago from the single version. Anyone else remember hearing it that way on the radio, or for anyone here who worked
in radio at the time, do you remember playing it that way? I suppose it could have been just an in-house edit.

Yes that was the version Benny Brown played on the R&R Top 40 which was broadcast in the UK.

Thanks, at least I'm not the only one who remembers it that way! So I guess if that shorter edit was played in the UK, it must be floating around
somewhere on a TM Century or some similar kind of promo disc. The running time would be somewhere around 3 1/2 minutes, and none of the CD Single
configurations I saw on Discogs have that length, not even the US promo.

Possibly, but not necessarily (it's not listed on the TM Studios master spreadsheet). That piano makes for a natural cue point for stations that want to play a shorter version, so this would be pretty easy to do without an official edit. This actually reminds me that I've been meaning to start a thread about songs that are almost always cued past a certain point on the radio...
