Brian, there is also a US 12" with a "short version" and printed time of 4:10. Since Roscoe says he found the correct version on a 12" single, I'm wondering if the 4:10 is just a misprint.

As for the location of the master tape for the original
45, just a reminder for a scenario i've witnessed over
and over again.
If you have the 45, take a look at the label and see who
MFG and/or distributed it. I don't recall for this Tabu
release but i think it was CBS. A common occurence is
the 45 master is still tucked away in a CBS---> now
Sony/BMG vault.   
I'm pretty sure if someone went looking, armed with the
matrix# from the single, they would find it there.

Every case is different. But that would be the first
place i would look. But at this late date i really don't
see this happening.

Does the US 45-rpm disc have that elongated "Take your tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime" as it enters an instrumental bridge? Maybe that's on my LP, but I can't remember.

I would like to hear the US 45-rpm disc if possible.

No, that vocal is on the long version but not the US 45.

11 years + of posts, including many by our most distinguished, seasoned
experts, and I believe I finally have some answers to the *one* big 80's hit
that has continued to confound us here on the Board, since its inception,
and had been truly unique in its ability to successfully elude me, for
decades, on a U.S. promo 45.

Well, no longer. I have *finally* found one. And I have additionally picked
up a promo 12" single, with added insights gleaned from it. Aaron has
just finished reviewing two of the four total versions. The third one is the
same as the stock 45, and the fourth, a listed (7:47), actual (7:48) promo
12" "long version", still awaits further analysis. So here goes, complete
with Aaron's analysis/findings:

Now I know why that (3:15) version always sounded "right" to me: Because
it was the one I played frequently on-air as a current. A listed & actual
(3:15) length is included as the "short version" of my Tabu 5522 promo
45. (Deadwax "ZS9-5522-3AD"). Aaron has confirmed that it matches the
(3:15) version found on the "Greatest Hits" CD. This same mix also
appears on the "Billboard Top Hits 1980" and "Disco Years, Vol. 5", V/A
CDs, but they both fade out approx. :15 seconds later than the (3:15)
promo 45 does, at around (3:30).

The "long version" of my promo 45 is the same listed & actual (3:51)
version that appears on all U.S. stock 45s. (Deadwax "ZS9-5522-5AD").

Now to my promo 12" single. Mine (Tabu 758) has a white label, but a
Tabu 5523 black label "Dance Music" promo 12" also exists. (Both 12"ers
include the exact same contents.) The "short version" has a listed (4:10),
actual (4:09) version. (Deadwax "XSS-167326-1D"). Aaron has confirmed
two things here: 1) That this version is the same as the (3:51) stock/DJ 45
long v, except that it continues on for another :18 seconds, and, 2) That
this specific length version has yet to appear anywhere on a domestic CD.

Aaron's summary:
-US 45 mix appears in lengths of (3:51) (45) and (4:09) (12"), differing
only by a longer fadeout.

-US promo 45 mix appears on CD in lengths of (3:15) (DJ 45) and (3:30)
(although there has never been an "official" (3:30) 1980 release), again
differing only by a longer fadeout.

-The main way to spot these two mixes easily is the presence or absence
of "clinking glasses" in different places throughout the song. For instance,
on the intro of the US 45 mix, you hear what sounds like someone tapping
a fork against a Coca-Cola bottle. This can also be heard on the long LP
version, although the album version has other differences, too. This "glass
clinking" sound is completely absent from the short, (3:15) promo 45 mix.
Also important to note is that neither of the 45 mixes contains the "Let's
Do It" chant that is found on the LP version.

The "long version" side of my promo 12" has a listed time of (7:47) and an
actual time of (7:48). (Deadwax "XSS -167325-1D"). Pat currently shows 4
CDs as including the"LP Version", with run times between (7:35) and
(7:40). I am going to shoot out the (7:48) promo 12" long version to Pat,
to see if it could be a possible match for the longest current version in his
db, a (7:46) "remix" found on the Club Epic V/A CD.

Yes Jim, the Club Epic cd is the long 12" single version.

     The EU box release, The Tabu Anthology, (2014 Tabu/Demon
TABUBOX0003) has the US commercial version (3:51). This box also has
eight of the band's LPs, an extra disc of 7" mixes and a disc of 12" mixes. I
matched the single version listed on the box with my US commercial version,
and they match!

I believe Aaron determined that was a 45 dub. Unless
they found a tape between the pre-release download of the
"Take Your Time" single and the release of the box set.
But the downloads were the kickoff to the remaster
campaign.

I suspect that this single version's master tapes are on
a 45 RPM job reel spliced in with the releases near it.
Most record companies had their single masters spliced
on a large phono reel for ease of mastering and storage.
So, if someone at Sony can come up with some master
numbers around the Tabu single, maybe that job reel can
be located.

Did we ever determine what the difference is between the LP version and the 12" single version?

Is it just the length of the fade?
