Here's another BotS between two versions of Cotton Fields, 20/20 Album Version and Single Version.
Cotton Fields arranged mainly by Brian was released on 20/20 at first, but someone in the group might not be satisfied with this version, and released the single version arranged by Al. It became a big hit for the group in some countries such as the UK, Japan, and Australia.
In Japan, I've seen some people who love the single version, and some who hate it. The former say it has some memories with them... because it is one of a few BB songs that made a big hit in 70's. One of the later says the single version is jarring and "vulgar", and he says it's because the lack of Al's talent.
I once said that I prefer album version on PSF, but single version has been growing on me. It's powerful and more entertaining.
Now, which version do you prefer? Looking forward to seeing your interesting views
