And, as I discovered last week when I finally got around to replacing my tape with the CD, entirely a figment of the record company's imagination:
The original vinyl LP faded out "Marquee Moon" to 9:58 because of space limitations. All CD issues have featured the full-length version of the song, clocking in at 10:40.And the original version just isn't as good! Verlaine sings the first verse again, they do a little flourish, the song ends. Whee. And all these years, I thought the band had actually managed to do something cool with the conventional fade-out.
