Can anyone with a copy of this record identify whether this is the exact version of Hard Boiled Babe appearing on it?
I got the Light in the Attic version specifically for this track, but the version pressed there has a lame bass line running all the way through it :/ this is the version I got:

Track A9 plays on B1 on my copy of the may 2011 repress
also it seems like most of the tracks end earlier than the original pressing.
