"Do It Again" and "Haitian Divorce" are the standard-length versions we know and love (note to _digger: these songs are the same exact length as the album versions). The fidelity of these two tracks are outstanding, a slight cut above the Robert Ludwig legendary mastering of Steely Dan's Greatest Hits. As for "Dallas" and "Sail The Waterway," the mastering is pretty muffled -- and yet better than any other version I've ever heard, although I've never heard the original 7" single.

As a Steely Dan fan, this is something of a 'must have', as it includes two difficult-to-track-down songs (Dallas & Sail the Waterway). I don't know of many little-known hidden gems from the Dan, so getting two on this EP is a real treat.
Love these songs. Dallas has Jim Hodder on lead vocals, Sail the Waterway is our Man Donald Fagen on the vox. This puppy spins at 45 rpm and sounds really nice. Highly recommended.

Would I be correct in my assumption that this contains the only released vinyl containing the unexpurgated version of 'Do It Again'? I'm sure the LP version wasn't this long... Any info would be gladly received!

This is a five-star review because of the two otherwise-unavailable tracks contained within: "Dallas" and "Sail The Waterway", the A- and B-sides, respectively, of La Dan's first ABC single from 1972. Although "Dallas" is, IMO, a great song (covered beautifully a couple of years later by Poco), it failed to nick the charts, and was not included on their debut Lp, "Can't Buy A Thrill". In fact, since those days, Donald and Walter have expressly disavowed the single, saying they'd rather forget it even existed. In fact, it's amazing that these sides were included on this UK EP, since our boys would have unilaterally vetoed such release if it had been proposed in the States.

While arguably not quite up to the level of the material that eventually was included on their debut Lp, they're still fine songs and a must for any Dan completist.
