I am LIVID! Whoever uploaded that cut the whole thing short! The full 
version is 13:41 long - and without the end bit it loses some of its 
essential charm/meaning!

And Gypsy Man is an abomination! Not only is the original 11:45 long but 
it is also recorded at a slower speed whereas the one on YouTube has 
been speeded up and now sounds tinny.

Even The world is a Ghetto is 10:21 long and not the 8:54 on YuToob.

And with no pulseaudio anywhere in sight, I just played the originals of 
the above on MY 5.1 using only alsa.....so there.


There comes a time in the affairs of a man when he has to take the bull by the tail and face the situation.
