I recently noticed a difference between the mono and stereo versions of the "45 version (edit)" of The Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today.

In the mono version on Rock Classics Of The '60s, the break starts at 2:23 and ends with the "ohhhhhh" at 3:29 (running 1:06). In the stereo version on say Nuggets Vol. 3, the break starts at 2:25 and ends with the "ohhhhhh" at 3:23 (running :58). BUT, the mono version is a bit faster. The mono version indeed has a longer break, and it does sound a bit different to me. the overall length of the mono version being shorter too, can anyone confirm with an actual 45 that this mono version is indeed the mono 45. It would seem then that the stereo 45 edit is just not quite it!

Man, this database has got me pulling my CDs and giving them another, closer listen, discovering stuff I didn't know I had! thanks Pat!

My commercial 45 for this song, which is mono and confirmed as Columbia 44414, happens to be the rarer and shorter of the two 1968 commercial 45 releases. It has a listed time of (3:05), but an actual time of (3:09).

Pat:

The database currently displays a "45 version" comment for each of the song's CD appearances running approximately 4:47 and 3:09. If I may make a suggestion, I'm thinking it might be a bit more helpful for database subscribers if the comments were modified slightly to read "long 45 version" for the 4:47 entries and "short 45 version" for the 3:09 entries. That way, subscribers can more quickly scan down the song's CD listings and find the 45 edit they may be looking for.

Agreed, the 4:47 long single is the most common. And there is a mono version of it on 45.

The song was recorded back in 1966, all 11 minutes and change of it, and a very different recording starting with, instead of the cuckoo, what sounds like a pony whinnying and a clock bell.

The 4:47 version has what sounds like ground-loop hum
towards the end of the song, where the metronome is
slowing down, just before the "euuuh!". I've noticed
later re-creations of this edit don't have it. Was it on
the album?

I don't have the vinyl The Time Has Come LP, but there's no ground-loop hum at all on that portion of the track on my promo copy of the vinyl The Chambers Brothers Greatest Hits LP.

Maybe someone thought the 4:47 single sounded more psychedelicized by throwing in some hum. :)

You know that the metronome is supposed to be imitating a ticking clock, given the first word in the title, "Time". ;

I have a copy that, like Jim's, is Columbia 44414 and listed 3:05, but
listening this weekend, it felt much longer. Sure enough, it appears to
be the long single edit. My copy is too trashed to get a precise timing
but it runs at least 4:40. The deadwax has a machine stamped code:
zsp135996-3c.
