Can't find a thread on this, but the database states 45 version and stereo
LP mix (among other labels) for the track. What gives it its "stereo LP
mix" distinction, also, what LP did it first appear on? I can't find it
having appeared on an LP until several years later.

This song peaked in 3/69. Both my stock 45 and both sides of my promo
45 feature mono mixes. David, it did first appear on an album of his 11
months later, in 2/1970: the "Ain't It Funky" LP. This is noted to be an
album full of instrumentals. Five months later, in 7/70, the song in
question appears again, on his "It's A New Day So Let A Man Come In"
album.

I don't own either of these LPs. Pat does currently include specific db
notations for both a 1970 re-recording and a "stereo LP version". Closer
analysis will need to be done, to determine which db versions might
match up with which 1970 LP versions, if any.

I think you've brought us down this road a time or two before, David, as
to when exactly "the statute of limitations" ends, between when a current
45 release becomes a hit, and how soon an album must follow to qualify
as its "parent LP". Assuming for argument's sake, that the "stereo LP
version" is from that 7/70 LP, I agree that a gap of a year and 4 months is
an unusually long one, for our normal purposes. But if the version found
there is simply the stereo debut for a basically similar-sounding take,
likely recorded at the time of the hit and only now being issued, I suppose
it's more in the spirit of "original version" vs "later re-recording," although
I have no strong feeling either way.

It is well known that Brown never concerned himself much with albums,
and this case could be as simple as JB deciding in mid-1970 that his LP
was a song short, so now was the time to finally offer up a stereo mix of
his early 1969 hit, which had been "sitting in the can" for the better part
of a year and a half.....

thanks, Jim. The BSN website discography notates the song on that LP
as "version 3", so Mike C obviously thought it was also different
somehow from the mono 45, but I don't know how.
