TOTO - "Africa"

The actual 45 running time is (4:14), the listed time is "4:23" on the record label. (Columbia 38-03335)

The version that is on "Now That's What I Call Yacht Rock" is an incorrect edit. The correct 45 version starts with the synthesizers and fades out on the second bass riff, while this version starts with 10 seconds of the drums and cowbell and fades out on the first bass riff.

That sounds like the same version that's on
the 2-Disc version of "The Essential Toto"
that I have.

Is that double disc the European import, Dan?

Yes, it's the UK version. I just listened to it and I think it may be an early fade of the Album Version, but not sure. The music fades
out at about 4:21 on it.

Happy Sunday! The incorrect 45 version, as featured on the UK 2-disc
‘Essential Toto’ is an early fade of the album version. I’ve checked it
before. Basically, if you could lop the percussion-and-drums-only intro
off and extend the song by that length, you would have the correct 45
version. I am not sure if what we’re calling the “incorrect” 45 edit was
possibly a UK 45 version or just a goof.

I also thought it might be a UK 45 version, but none of the Discogs listings for the UK 45 show a running time on the label, although Discogs itself
lists the running time as 3:54 on a few of them. Either that or maybe it was someone's attempt to recreate the 45 version. (Maybe they saw the 4:23 run
time on the US 45 and just faded it themselves?). It's interesting that this version runs closer to the stated run time of 4:23 on the US 45 than the
actual US 45 itself.

Is the 4:22 version as featured on
the Rhino CD Billboard Top Hits:
1983
the correct 45 version?

If it actually runs about 4:14 and begins with
synthesizers, it is most likely the correct 45
version.
