This review is from: The Sound of Bread (Audio CD)WTF, have waited 20 years for this to be released on CD, at last (I said) when I saw it on the shelf in Virgin this week. Just playing now and noticed the other reviews saying that there's a track missing off the original listing 'Aubrey' Thinking that the obvious reason for this must be that the original line up took the running time for this CD beyone the 79 min max. BUT NO! It's only 57 mins so why this great track (14) has been replaced with a 2 min pile of tosh. Totally wreckes the experience of this album from the original. I'd rather keep my Vinyl copy (with pops & clicks) or my tape copy (with hiss) than this gleaming CD version with classic tunes removed and poo tracks inserted (for no reason). Did somebody press the wrong buttons in the mastering studio for this release. DOH! I know other reviews tend to quibble endlessly over track selections for 'Greatest Hits' types but this is on a par with sending out a new release of 'Bat out of hell' or 'Dark side of the moon' and changing the order of tracks then adding some 'Drum'n'bass' just to nark the public for no reason. If David Gates is reading this, then David, sack your management.

I also have an original vinyl copy of this album and it contained "Just Like Yesterday" and omits "Aubrey". A friend who I used to work with had a copy of the vinyl like yourself with "Aubrey" and not "J L Y". For a while after we were at odds as to what version came first- We did notice that my copy of the LP came with a nice "textured" feel sleeve and his had a standard "smooth" finish.
In seeing for sale second hand originals over the years, the originals are always advertised as having "textured" sleeves and the track "Just Like Yesterday". I've taken it for granted that my LP was the original and the "Aubrey" version was the later pressing although I'm still not sure why Electra changed the track listing!

On the subject of the track listing change, I had a copy of this album on vinyl which contains "Aubrey" but not "Just Like Yesterday". My partner has the same album but her's contains "JLY" and not "Aubrey". We both bought the albums around late 70's/early 80's (can't remember precisely when) before we knew each other. So the change happened donkeys years ago, not sure which came first. I always used to presumed one might be an American release or something like that. Anyway, in response to "tone-deaf", I think JLY is far from "a pile of tosh", it's actually a great track (as is Aubrey).
