Oddly, this song has only been issued on one domestic CD, "A Good Thing Lost", which contains the original Canadian version in
stereo and the American Version in mono. Basically the guitars and other instruments were completely re-done for the American
version. In the U.S. the American version was released in mono on the 45 and in stereo on the "Which Way You Goin' Billy"
album.

So, why was the American version issued in mono on that CD? To me, it sounds like it could be a vinyl dub, but maybe it's just
naturally raspy. it's possible that Terry Jacks couldn't find a stereo master for the American version. Or, he didn't like it.

But I did notice a significant mix difference between the mono 45 and the stereo album. At the end of the song on the mono 45,
after her final "That's Where I Went Wrong" Susan's ahhhhhhhhs are at a good level, just like elsewhere in the song. However,
on the stereo LP mix, you can barely hear her. She IS there, so I don't know if the differences merit a "version" notation, but
it sounds like there is a 45 mix and and LP mix. Also the presentation of the guitars sounds more carefully mixed on the 45
than the LP.

As far as I know, the stereo American LP mix has never made it digital.

Which version is on the stereo side of the
promotional 45? I'd assume it's the same
as the American album mix, but one never
knows.
