Notes:
The US version of 'The White Room' was strongly edited for its official commercial release. It has a total playing time of 39:39, and it contains 9 tracks. The original UK version presents the first five tracks ('What Time Is Love?' through 'Last Train To Trancentral') as a kind of 'mini-concert' with sampled crowd noise from, among other places, U2's 'Rattle And Hum'. All five tracks are segued and mixed. It has a total playing time printed of 45:05, but in reality it's only 43:54. It lists 9 songs, but only has 8 indexed. The US version eliminates the crowd noise, with some tracks ending very abruptly. This is probably as the crowd noise was sampled from a Doors album and hence the obvious copyright problems. The US edition also has the single mix of 'Last Train To Trancentral' instead of the mellower UK album version, edits 'No More Tears' down from 9:24 to 6:42, and adds a little more wind noise at the end of the closing 'Justified And Ancient'. The Japanese version follows the US format, with some more samples apparently removed due to copyright issues. In addition, it includes three extra tracks.

I bought this album for 1$ at a red cross store. It was in perfect shape. This album is so good. If it would have cost me like 20$ is would still buy it.

I picked this version of the album up October 2018 in HMV for £15. I don't know if other HMV shops are getting copies, I was just in total disbelief at seeing a The KLF CD in HMV, 26 years after they deleted their catalogue in the UK. It's the American version by Arista, which I haven't heard before, and also has a bunch of Justified and Ancient remixes on it. If anyone's interested in checking this version out, pop round to the shops and you might find it!

I have a 69 minute MP3 version of this album but it has no track list as it was from a Russian website and came in one track format.
I was not familiar with the original so have nothing to compare it to.
Does anyone know which version I have?

I have a different version of this CD with the same catalog number. It is split correctly into 9 tracks, however track 5 is
Last Train To Trancentral (Live From The Lost Continent - Radio Edit) with a runtime of 3:43

Growing up in Canada I of course got to know the US tracklisting quite well, and didn't even realize until about 10 years later that there were different versions. Although I enjoyed the album tremendously, particularly the first 1/2, I always felt it was lacking something and didn't really 'flow' well. After hearing the UK version with the crowd noise years later it all made sense.

Actually i'm surprised they took it out at all for copyright reasons - I can't imagine anyone being able to identify what album they stole it from if it's just generic cheering...

BTW for fans of Last Train To Trancentral, check out the fantastic remix / re-edit that Joseph Watt of Razormaid did on this Gridlock issue. He took the best parts of the best 4 versions (Iron Horse / UK LP Mix / Live From The Lost Continent / 808 Bass) and spliced them together magnificently. Sounds like it should have been conceived that way from the start!!

I've never found this an entertaining listen. Where some find diversity I hear only pastiche. Contrary to what has become popular belief, KLF didn't have much influence at all on the underground dance music scene. If you ever did hear White Room at someone's pad after a good night out, it was probably because no one could be bothered to put any tunes on the decks, and in 15 minutes everyone would be sound asleep. Buy yourself Aqua Regia's "Age Of Aqueous" or Bleep's "North Pole By Submarine" if you want to hear some good dance/acid/techno. The White Room is simply an pop album based around the genres of the time. A classic of music it most definitely isn't. KLF will be remembered alongside comedy groups like The Barron Knights, which is as it should be.

To those familiar with the original version (original if the rare movie soundtrack is discounted) the absence of 'stadium' ambience makes the first five tracks here seem to start and stop abruptly. Still, this version has plenty to recommend it. 'What Time Is Love' kicks in more promptly and 'Church of The KLF' offers a better chill out when isolated from the powerful mixes around it. And while 'No More Tears' has a light and lovely groove, the nine and a half minutes of the previous version was a bit excessive amid the other cuts on this album. The newer version of 'Last Train to Trancentral' included here is a certified classic but I do miss the LP mix that it replaced.

Arguably there are 4 versions of the album, in increasing order of vagueness they are;
1. US/Canada release with short single versions of 3AM and Last Train, no crowd noise; has shorter “make it rain” and “no more tears” but the slightly longer “justified and ancient”
2. Japan release with no crowd noise, short 3AM, long WTIL? & Last Train but all commercial release versions; has shorter “make it rain” and “no more tears” but the slightly longer “justified and ancient” and a clutch of extra tracks available elsewhere
3. Main rest-of-world/Europe release with crowd noise and LP versions of the Stadium House Trilogy; has long “make it rain” and “no more tears” but the slightly shorter “justified and ancient”. I am including the Ltd Picture edition in this as it is the same album but with a clutch of extra tracks available elsewhere
4. The French version with interesting timings that would suggest an overall shorter first side/half.
.
From here on things are very vague; the COMA version has even odder timings but is overall the same length as the rest-of-world/Europe release.
And then there are the hokey LP home recording timings such as JAMSLP 3681
There are also alt versions of Make it Rain and No More Tears with different timings floating about; 3:51 and 8:58 respectively, which may well be the Euro versions without the crowd noise or other samples in that were used as US promo material.

By any measure though it is a great album, and despite other comments the Europe version is much much better!

Just sayin’
