A whiter shade of Parsons than Iím used to seeing. Melodrama isnít my middle name anyway (Vaughan is) so ballads bounce off me like rubber bullets. (Letís see: Got the references to Procol Harum and 10cc in there? Check.) The A side runs about a minute shorter than the elpee version thanks to a clumsy fade after the second theme (a la 10cc, since we wouldnít invoke Ďem for nothing) is introduced. The B side is the instrumental ďI RobotĒ (both songs are from the album of the same name), which is actually the better song. Itís identical to the elpee version, but nobody bothers with tightening the belt of a B side.
