As far as I know the extended version of Taco's "Puttin' On The Ritz" is only on one or two official compilation CDs but the sound is awful (probably sourced from vinyl). So here is my re-creation, edited from my own Taco "After Eight" CD (Germany issue) ( https://www.discogs.com/Taco-After-Eight/release/836706 ) in FLAC:

Taco - "Puttin' On The Ritz (Extended Version)" 6:07

The only adjustment I made other than the editing was to normalize the audio (increasing the volume to it's maximum without clipping).
Embedded artwork taken from the Burning The Ground blog - Thanks DJPaulT :-)

BTW - Can anyone supply me with a rip of the USA "Cheek To Cheek" 7" version or the "Singin' In the Rain" Canadian 7"? I'd like to re-create those edits but can't find any trustworthy source online. The 1982 USA 7" lists "Cheek To Cheek" as 3:30 but the 1983 "Puttin' On The Ritz" b/w "Cheek To Cheek" USA 7" reissue lists it as 3:39Plenty of videos uploaded on YouTube but most are from TV appearances so it's hard to say if they are the actual edited versions released on those singles.
