http://www.eyeneer.com/video/rock/bonzo-dog-doo-dah-band/in-the-canyons-of-your-mind Different words (spot the diff, more anarchy in the instrumentalism and closer to the offending music rip off noted already). They should have got Elvis P to a straight version of this.

 Which video plays version 2? The video with the turntable or without?

 The original version of 'Canyons' had a melody line that was suspiciously similar to the Doris Day hit "If I Give My Heart To You". Thus... version 2.

 Hawkmarty: I'll ask the question again. Which B-side take is the first? The video I previously posted or this one? They sound similar but are not identical.
I was aware there was a version with no spoken intro.

 I have the large-centred version(someone brought it out to Australia with him/her, then offloaded it to a second-hand record shop, then along comes "this little black duck"(me) and snaps it up.... Nice one! This was a novelty hit here when I was in my first year of high school(I turned 13 in April, that year).

 Both B-side versions can be heard at the United Artists USA linked record.

 United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra plays - Urban Spaceman (But their leader should check his release dates !! )

 I think on both the tracks ( despite Urban Spaceman being from TOTP2 , I think original must have been the same CMP session ) , the record track has been used , rather than a morning session take as there is no variation to the musical tracks at all from the disc. Thats not to say the Bonzo's couldn't do a note perfect reproduction , just I dont see it in their nature given a live or near live opportunity to do so. I think there is a video clip of the guitar solo in Canyons that uses a slight variation in the notes played, possibly done at a much later time.

 Re Deep and Biff's comments - quite so.

 Sweet essence of Giraffe. It was truly a moment of human greatness when Viv reappeared wearing the large papier-mâché head from stage right. He was the student who submitted Godzilla -vs- Oscar Wilde for his Diploma at St Martins.

 The Colour Me Pop performance was a typical BBC setup for the time. The band mimed to the pre-recorded backing track whilst Vivian Stanshall sang live hence it's a different vocal, his burps are different... notice too when he's wearing the large false head - his vocals are more muffled!

 So the Colour Me Pop performance is somewhat different ? ( Intro , and aspects of the 'melody' )

 Yours is the B//2 version then,as they performed it on "Do Not Adjust Your Set". The LP version has no spoken intro, just straight into "In the canyons of your mind..."

 I've got a 3-prong push-out centre with "Bron Music Ltd." on the B-side...

 As can be seen on the last two scans the record with the alternate take on the B side has noticeable differences in typeface and, most useful for identifying purposes, the publisher credit below the side number now reads "Bron Music Ltd." instead of "Bron Mus. Ltd."

 There are 2 versions of this single with different takes of the B side.
The B1 take is as the LP and the B//2 take is as they performed it on "Do Not Adjust Your Set" with a spoken intro. The first take is available with a push-out centre and the large centre hole but I have never seen a copy of the second take with a push-out centre.
