H ere are two candidates for the expanded reissue of More Songs (whenever that happens): the single edit of “Take Me To The River” (trimmed to a tight 3 minutes 36 seconds) and an alternative version of “Thank You For Sending Me An Angel” featuring acoustic guitars and Eno’s delicious marzipan touches. Both are better than their elpee counterparts; “River” because it cuts out Byrne’s scratching and puts the emphasis back on Harrison’s marvelous keyboards, “Angel” because it’s more cuddly and less obnoxious than the first go ‘round. The UK single featured “Found A Job” on the flip side, while a double 7-inch added “Love->Building On Fire” and “Psycho Killer” back to back. On a different note, it’s interesting how new wave initially declared itself through revisions of older songs: “Take Me To The River,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Money (That’s What I Want),” “Tainted Love.” I wonder if that’s common to all new movements, a sort of manifesto period.
