The 4xEP version of "The Complete Manhattan Tower" differs from the LP version in several ways. Most notably among these are two exclusions--the first, of the song "Learnin' My Latin" (which is replaced by a spoken link), and the second, of the reprise of "Repeat After Me" (which is simply dropped, although the reprise of "This Close to the Dawn," unbilled on either set, is retained). Some sections (including the aforementioned spoken link) seem to have been different takes from those used on the LP as well (most noticeable in this respect are the very conclusion of side A and the very beginning of side H), but this could be simply due to differences in crossfading. But the fact that there are sections on this set that do not appear on the LP, and sections on the LP that do not appear on this EP set, makes one thing very certain: neither the LP nor the EP set is indeed the "Complete" Manhattan Tower as promoted and titled by Capitol.
