Track u81_496a - Candido - Jingo.mp3 seems to just stop at 2.59. The spreadsheet has it timed at 3.10.

Also u81_104a - ABBA - Lay All Your Love On Me.mp3 doesn't sound like the track I remember. It seems to be some sort of disco remix. Can anyone confirm if this is the correct version?

Hi Chartwatcher

Abba - I know what you mean - it does seem to be a bit more dancy than I recall as well.

However I have the Super Trouper album as well as Abba Gold and all three versions are the same.

Three versions - and I wonder where all my disk space is going. :lol:

Cheers

Tel

Only three? :shock:

FWIW Jingo is definitely a short cut. The only other versions I have are the 7.22 extended mix and the album version, over 9 minutes long!. Does anyone out there have a rippable vinyl copy?

Have posted an alternate version of Jingo from an old compilation vinyl album. It comes in a 3.44, so may not be the exact single mix.

Also managed to hear a version of the Abba track on old K-Tel album called Charthits 81 and it does match the version already posted.

Looks like we have another incomplete track.

The running time for u81_379a - The Cure - Charlotte Sometimes is 0:53. Can anyone repost?

Apologies to all. I've just downloaded the track again from a.b.s.1980s.mp3 and it's fine. Must have only partially downloaded it the first time round.
