 thankyou for the information stereotom it be very unlikely the full stereo mix would have been wiped

 Stereo mix is of the first United Artists release for the single, which was edited down from the full length version. The 2nd United Artists single replaced one lyric and was never mixed to stereo.

Chances of a stereo mix existing of the full track are zero. That session tape was one that got purged in the 1973 EMI vault cleanout.

 They could never do a song like this these days! Record Collector heard a stereo mix but edited down to less than 3 minutes? That means there's got to be the full version in stereo lurking out there.... somewhere! Probably stowed away in EMI's archives at Hayes, Middlesex.
