LaBelle - Lady Marmalade

Postby swinburneivan » Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:26 pm


Have got a bit of confusion with LaBelle - Lady Marmalade.

The 45 label states a running time of 3.14 as does the USA label and the spreadsheet.

However the version downloaded runs at 3.54 yet the tag states 'Original vinyl rip'.

I have timed the 45 and it does indeed run at the shorter time and just wondered if this has now been corrected or if the correct version needs uploading.

Hi Ivan

Thanks - I've just checked the initial files for 1975 and we have the correct version which will be in the 1975 Upgrade post.

I've just moved, so 1975 has been slightly delayed and we still have a lot of B Sides to collect, but I am now getting back on the case. However it may still be a few weeks before we get there.

Update - just checked and it looks like the longer version was a European release. So it is feasible that it is a vinyl rip, just not a UK version.

We have had similar problems with non UK releases (10cc - I'm Not In Love was one) and I will do a check as far as possible to ensure timings are correct. However the label can sometimes be incorrect.
