The Promotion (single version)

On the Top of the Pops album, the two parts of The Promotion are presented as separate tracks. They segue seamlessly on the 7" record, but sadly not on the digital album.

The version on this single stitches together the two parts as one digital track (with a few bonus seconds added to the end) for a better listening experience.
