It was never a question of liking versions or not, but about the obsession with extended versions in the reissue market when issuing classic albums or making single artist compilations (the want for it that Jah Bill gave expression for). Like single artists albums containing ten ordinary tracks more than often wasn´t boring enough. The latter of course a matter of preferences. Personally I always go for the 45, rather than the 12 inch, in the cases where the latter is available at all. And when it is version time, just flip it over or pulling out the version from another record.
