A gain edited down from the elpee, this time by removing over a minute of instrumental wonder from the middle. “Games People Play” is in line with Turn of a Friendly Card’s theme of gambling, perhaps a reference to the older people who frequent casinos. The b side is an instrumental from the elpee that presumably refers to the tarot card of the same name. Steve Hackett found similar inspiration from tarot for his song, “Ace of Wands.”
