Gaijin has set me off on a bit of an audit. There is a spreadsheet!

Yes. Someone has shared it on YouTube:

The Wea 87 tape that I referred to has been dug up and I realise that I had my facts about Driven wrong. There is a version (#2) that is 5'15. No Synth, no car, no internal edits. The issue with the WEA tape transfer that was shared some time ago is it's in mono and very noisy. Difficult to trust s...

I haven't tracked down the source of this version - even though it's been 'available' on P2P for many years.
It's on the Sampler 410.

There's also the Canadian LP that lists shorter track lengths but I assume that's a misprint. Though I haven't heard it.

I feel as though I've heard that "rough mix" and can't recall anything interesting about it. Perhaps Elon would be interested in loaning their copy to me so we can get a good transfer of it and know for sure?

The SAM-410 promo sounds promising. I've put in an offer for a copy on Discogs.

If it's the same pre-FM transfer shared on the 80/85 group then it's the same transfer available officially.

They broadcast the Manics yesterday by all accounts, so fingers crossed :)
Appears to be broadcasting from the festival now. Hopefully someone will capture the Sisters' set if it's aired!
