I am assuming none of the music from the original 12" has been cut off to fit a 7" release?
absolutely not. we would not truncate a release to fit it on a different format.
hard to please everyone, when you put something from a 12" on a 7", some people will always want the original format (this is what i personally generally prefer in most circumstances as well).
but then when you put something out on a 12" that could fit on a 7" (like we did with Dave Robinson - Got To Go Thru, keeping the original format), some people bawl that it should have been on the other (cheaper) format.
in the case of this tune, the Uplifters tune was just one side of the original 12" release, and the vocal and dub easily fit on a 7". there is two pressings of the original, one w/ Enforcer - Bad Boy on the other side (also reissued this month!) and one w/ a boring (IMO) Blue Bells tune on the other side. i had no interest in re-releasing the Blue Bells so the natural choice was to just put it on a 7".
