4.7 Why are there two CD singles of "Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah"? (The Wedding Present Songs and albums)

David Gedge: "The single came in 4 formats...the 12", Cassette
and CD1 all featured 4 songs recorded in Seattle with Steve
Fisk--pretty straightforward. A week later we brought out a
second CD which was essentially the title track and three
recordings from our John Peel session of earlier this year. I
imagined that this would be fine because it was essentially
similar to the Strange Fruit things we used to bring out. There
*was* a fourth Peel Session track--Him Or Me (What's It Gonna
Be?) but since we already had a superior version (Fisk-produced,
on CD1) we felt that duplication would be unnecessary. Also,
Spangle and Gazebo are completely different from the Watusi
versions.

"However, there has been some annoyance that the Peel Session
stuff wasn't available on good ol' vinyl, and I'm sorry about
that. We'll think twice about repeating the idea! The version
of Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah on the first week's releases had the
false starts edited off but we decided to leave them on CD2 to
make it a bit different! The voice you can hear is that of the
very handsome engineer John Goodmanson and not Steve Fisk.
