Here and in the label of the vinyl says that "Pease Porridge" lasts 2:27, however in the normal version of the album this song lasts 5:01. Can someone tell me if it is an error in the text (maybe because the previous song also says, and that it lasts in the normal edition, 2:27)?

AMAZING follow up to 3 feet... way darker, pessimistic, and underrated. Have this 2 LP, with picture cover, but mine has a promo stamp on it.. rarer than the black Cover promo it seems. Finally got it right to spread these songs over 2 LPs..as they squeezed too much on 1 disc on 3 feet high.

as mentioned, this is missing the 'skits' I have this, along with the proper picture sleeve double Promo with Skits intact
