Tracklisting on the Japanese website says: "Bring In The Barrel"!
Is this a version with different lyrics? Laughing

At least it isn't 'Roll Out The Barrel' - allthough it might be amusing to hear a prog version of that! Wink

I hope they won't do the same mistake (CATH was cut in the middle, leaving only half the track on the cd) ! Wink

They exchanged the album version into the 7" edit (without any further notice). This is what you can sadly experience quite often on japanese releases.

Got the japanese package today. After a quick listening I can confirm a great (flat) mastering with enough dynamic headroom.BLITW contains the original full length version of calling all the heroes and the 7" edit as bonus track. TAG has bonus live version of screaming on the beaches which is stated as "live at the Marquee". My guess is that it was recorded directly from the desk because it doesn't sound very polished, but energetic.

I seem to remember a live version of this song on a limited edition gatefold 7" of Whole New World. I still have it (IB anorak that I am). I'd wager it's the same one.
