Track A5 'Showdown' is missed in this issue

Several seconds of silence have been inserted between A2 ('Bluebird Is Dead') and A3 ('Oh No Not Susan'), which is inconsistent with the original (1973) album master. Similarly, silence has been inserted between B1 ('Daybreaker') and B2 ('Ma-Ma-Ma Belle'). The interlude that normally links B1 and B2 remains attached to B1, but is detached from B2.

The version of B2 ('Ma-Ma-Ma Belle') is an edit of the 1973 UK single version and the 1973 album version. Specifically, the single version is heard until the coda, at which point it switches to the album version so as to eliminate the single's fade-out and maintain the 1973 album's hard-edit to B3 ('Dreaming Of 4000').
