Different versions of songs.

Hi I was thinking about all the different versions of songs that were released as singles. For example

Ticket to Ride..
Close to You....

I listen to them a lot but without directly comparing I wouldn’t have a clue! If there is a thread discussing this, could anyone point me in the right direction please?

The most obvious place I can think of is the Carpenters Recording Resource, which lists the single versions of each song and how they differ from the album equivalents.

Song Listing – Alphabetical

This is a good example:

Can’t Smile Without You

Thanks for that. I can follow it but was thinking a simple list....

Ticket to Ride - original album, RPO, etc

I’m just so un knowledgeable about music it’s embarrassing !!
