This date from the album notes is most likely wrong. It reports that this is the same as the standard issue but it is definitely a different performance. Prominent cough on CD at 2:51 missing. It also seems to be a different performance from the broadcast. It is wonderfully played and seems to have some nice phrasing and shaping not in the RCA release. Most likely from different takes.
