I have a copy with duration of "Mainline" listed at 5:25, and it is actually the LP version with the long intro cut out and goes right into the first verse of vocals.....timed at 5:25. Has a slightly different typeset than the others on here. Runout etchings on "Mainline" side are S DSC-132-SA-1A-RE FW TC.......it is a true edited version.
a lot of times back then they would print the wrong time on a label i have the dramatics come inside which was the b side of shake it well they put the lp time on it instead of the actuall 45 time length the lp was around 6:and the 45 was about 3 1/2 : the mistakes they made back then i even have a 45 with the wrong artist on the b side side effect on the a side and labelle on the b side it must have been a mixup a the pressing plant
