Yes, I have the original 45 version. Send me a message, and we'll compare.

Aaron:

Glad I posted this info for anyone thinking that just because it's a 45, it MAY not be the proper version. Unfortunately, when I purchased it, there was no image to compare. So, beware, a Canadian issue of this song could be the same length...3:15.

Yeah, I think this is the reason the 3:15 version keeps popping up on comps -- it was the 45 version everywhere except the U.S.

my commercial 45 issued as tabu 5522 states the run time on the label as 3:51 and does indeed run that length.....this 45 run time info has not been added to the db yet....thx aaron for creating the true 45 version for me years ago.....

Question for Aaron though, how did you "create" the true 45 version? I thought there were some mixing / percussion differences that only occurred on the 45?
I saw in a post that the first 1:20 of the 45 is on cd...is any more of it?
I'm confused! :-D

He didn't -- it was just a straight 45 dub. Ed is remembering wrong. Unless Aaron later did another version that I don't know about.

it's possible it's a vinyl clean up.....but it sounds too clean to be that....but i guess we'll have to wait until aaron surfaces to get the final determination.....

Just saw this, any way you could forward me a copy so I could compare to my TM Century version?

Will do. I'm pretty sure TM used the Rhino Top Hits disc as their source, but it's been several years since I compared my GoldDisc to the Rhino version.

A friend sent me his vinyl dub a few years ago. It sounds pretty good, better than my own copy would have back then (my copy got pretty worn, and cue burned.)

For those who are wanting to compare versions, there is a clip on
YouTube of S.O.S. Band doing a lip sync of this song on Soul Train. I
believe it's the 45 version which is used and it's fairly decent sound
quality.

Edsel in the UK is releasing a Deluxe Epanded Edition of
S.O.S. Band's debut album in early April. No track listing
to be found yet, but let's keep our fingers crossed that it
will have the US single version of "Take Your Time (Do It
Right)." But I'm not really getting my hopes up.

I checked my single. It is the 3:15 version and it's the version I remember on the radio from the summer of 1980. I remember some borderline Buffalo, NY stations playing the 3:15 version though, so I'm not sure I remember the US "Hit" version (not even from syndicated countdown shows like Casey's or Dick Clark's)

Brian was just able to download a digital-only release of the US single
version, which has been made available overseas. Don't get too
excited, though. We have both determined it is a vinyl dub, and frankly,
it's not even as good as the one I've personally done. It's also not
available in lossless on the overseas download site. It appears that this
will be the same version (vinyl dub) on the upcoming expanded CD that
Brian mentions above.

Since the earlier posts are confusing about which mix is which, here is
what I've been able to conclude:

- US single version runs 3:51 and is a UNIQUE MIX not found
anywhere else except the US 45
- The "long version" (probably the same on both the LP and 12" but I
cannot confirm) has the additional "let's do it" chant on the intro and is
mixed differently than the US 45
- The 3:30 version on Billboard Top Hits 1980 is a different mix from
both the US 45 and long version, as it is missing the "let's do it" chant,
but it is also missing some additional percussion found on the 45 and
long versions.
- The 3:14 version on Greatest Hits is also missing the additional
percussion and might be the same mix as the Billboard disc (I haven't
confirmed this), just shorter.

Well that's a drag. I guess the U.S. single master must
truly be lost or majorly misfiled somewhere. Given the
ever-dwindling market for CD reissues like this, I
suspect that this release was probably the last chance
for a good-sounding CD release of the 45 version.

I'm not surprised that their needledrop doesn't sound
very good. I had several pressings of this 45, all with
vinyl distortion or surface noise. I finally acquired a
12 inch single with the 45 version and it sounds quite
nice.

If the 45 version is a bonus track on the upcoming "S.O.S." CD, it must be the same version that is available on the new single download. A missing tape is the most likely explanation for this, as well as for all previous CD appearances being a different version.

Anyone own the U.S. or British 12-inch? There is a (listed) 4:10 version on there called "Short Version." It's not impossible that that could be a longer versoin of the 45 version. It's also not impossible that it could show up on one of the Tabu reissues, either on the "S.O.S." CD or the boxed set later in the year.
