Default Question about Three Dog Night's LIAR (instrumental the last tune strings solo)

It's been mentioned a lot of times, but many DUnhille ABC singles were
different edits, takes and mixes than the same songs as found on
stereo LPs.

LIAR seems to have three instrumental parts that were either
subsituted, remixed or edited differently:
the intro (LP: keeps a guitar backing, single: has strings right
before the vocal)

the midsection (LP:repeats the aforementioned intro, single: has a
flute solo; both versions have this section's sharp guitar "stings" to
the tune of the chorus)

most of all the ending (LP: a organ solo; singlergan, sax, and
guitar freakouts..)

I bet those were just edited in different places besides the editing
(halfing, to be precise!) of the 2nd and 3rd chorus and the last part
of the midsection and the shorter fade...

BTW thanks to his 1965 solo ROSES AND RAINBOW I know WHICH Three Dog
Nighter does vocals, Danny Hutton, and he in point of fact sound
EXACTLY like the grown up (and then-PARTRIDGE FAMILY scamp) Danny
Bonaduce ('s KYSR/STAR 89/7 FM's Jamie (White) and Danny
(Bonaduce) show).

(Still having trouble telling Chuck 'n' Cory apart, and I was
actjually AROUND then).

Default Question about Three Dog Night's LIAR

I saw Chuck Negron in concert here in Las Vegas two weeks ago and found
myself wondering what songs he didn't sing lead on, on the records. The only
hits he left out of the concert were "Try a Little Tenderness" which he
mentioned was sung by Cory, and "Black and White", which wasn't even
mentioned. I've always thought Chuck didn't sing lead on "Mama Told Me Not
To Come", which he did include in the show. The whole thing left me
wondering who sang lead on each of their hits.

Default Question about Three Dog Night's LIAR (instrumental them)

Yes, that's very true. In most cases, only the mono single mix was the one
played on most radio stations. The stereo mix was the one released on the
album, and my memory is that they didn't often do a stereo single mix for a
lot of the hits from this era (late 60s/early 70s).

In the case of "Liar," the mono single mix is on the "Celebrate: The Three
Dog Night Story 1965-1975" CD, and there's an interesting extended stereo mix
on the Time-Life "Sounds of the Seventies - 1971: Take Two" CD. You'd have
to compare them back and forth, preferably in a recording studio on a digital
audio workstation, to really determine the precise differences. Sometimes,
they're fairly radical: totally different instrumental backing, different
vocal takes, etc., but often it's just a mix difference, with some
instruments and vocals sounding louder (or softer) than others.

This kind of thing is discussed frequently on Mike Callahan's BOTH SIDES NOW
