Like most Roger single edits, this is another good one. The intro is largely cut and much of the instrumental sections are now gone... and you can hardly tell. Quite well done. Still, stick to the album version.

You may not notice at first, but during the first chorus, Roger's vocals aren't double-tracked, so we only hear one layer of his singing instead of the original two, which we hear on the other choruses.

Remixed by Joshua J. Macrae, this is probably the best Queen or Queen related club remixes. It features the typical fast tempo club beat and some neat sound effects. Thankfully, some of the guitars have stayed in as well. Not as good as the album version but at least it's not as bad as the You Don't Fool Me mixes.

Once again, we're given a longer ending to an album track in The Lot. Rather than the original fade out, the synth strings are allowed to play out their final note, adding 8 seconds to the run time. This little change does enhance the song.

The Radio Mix is a reworking of the album version. Produced by Chris Thomas and mixed by Joshua J. Macrae and Chris Thomas, it features some fairly major remixing of the album version. This is not an edit, as it is longer than the original. The Radio Mix has a really different yet familiar sound compared to the album version. Thankfully, Treana Morris' vocals have remained in place too.

Surrender (Original Version) 3:37

Appears on:
Electric Fire CD Acetate
Appearing on a CD acetate, the original version of Surrender features Jonathan Perkins, not Roger Taylor on lead vocals. Treana Morris' vocal parts are the same that appear on the album version. Roger sings the chorus just as it appears on the album version as well.

This version is nearly impossible to spot, but it is there. The last breath at the end is allowed to end before the end of the track, where the original album had a subtle segue into People On Streets.

Surrender (Live At The Cyberbarn) 4:11

Recorded live at Cyberbarn. A good live version of the song. The backing instruments are somewhat subdued and sparce. Roger's lead vocal carries the song (including Treana's parts).

The 2013 remaster of this great live performance is featured on the Roger Taylor boxset, The Lot. This version is slightly different than the one that appeared on the CD single. About a second is shaved off the beginning crowd fade-in of the track.

Another club/dance mix by Joshua J. Macrae. Surprisingly, it is not all that much different from the album version. There is a quicker tempo backbeat and some sampled vocals added. Not bad, but again, I'd stick to the original.

People On Streets (Mashed - Japan CD Version) 3:43
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on:

The Japanese CD release of Electric Fire featured two bonus tracks. People On Streets (Mashed) ended the album, so it features the "One Night Stand" ending instead of London Town.

The original CD had a minor master error, where the first second of this song appeared at the end of Surrender, before cutting off the last breath in that song. Here, the start of song is intact on the track and the end features slightly longer street sound effects.

The DVD that comes included in The Lot boxset features a short instrumental version excerpt from The Whisperers. This little instrumental version sets a really nice mood for the DVD; it also makes you wish for an instrumentals CD of Roger's work!

A very rare, original version of 'Is It Me?' appears on a CD acetate of Electric Fire. At 4:28, it is obvious that the song is over a minute longer; featuring extra verses and chrouses not present on the album. Click here to see the full lyrics of the original version.

Recorded live at Cyberbarn. A very good, rocking version. It doesn't stray much from the album version, which is a good thing. The performance has lots of energy, which comes across well in the recording.

The 2013 remaster of this great live performance is featured on the Roger Taylor boxset, The Lot. This version is slightly different than the one that appeared on the CD single. The fadeout goes a bit longer so you can hear the end of the laughing bit.

A very interesting remix, that is mostly instrumental. Most of the vocals are now gone, with mostly just the chorus vocals remaining. Recommended.

Tonight (The Lot Album Version) 3:47

Appears on:
The Lot
The original CD had a mastering error where, as this song segued into Where Are You Now?, the start of that song is heard at the end of the Tonight track. Here, Tonight finishes both without the segue and without the first second of Where Are You Now?, making it a longer, stand-alone version.

Tonight (Live At The Cyberbarn) 4:20

Recorded live at Cyberbarn. A quieter, more subdued live version. Roger's lead vocals have a minor echo effect added to them. Much more relaxing and peaceful than the album version. Not much has changed though, and it still feels familiar. A well done performance.

As a result of removing the segue between this track and Tonight, as well as correcting the mastering error that cut off the intro and placed it at the end of Tonight, this is the complete, stand-alone version.

A major single edit of the album version. The intro is much shorter and the outro is now gone. It gets the point of the song across very well in much less time.

Like a lot of the other alternate versions on The Lot edition of Electric Fire, this track features a slightly longer ending, with more audible sound effects of London nightlife before it fades out. The other difference is that unlike the original CD, this version doesn't end with Roger yelling "One night stand!" Now, that wasn't part of the song anyway, it was only there as part of the One Night Stand remix contest in 1998.

Keep A Knockin'

A very repetitve song. It is a fun cover with a lot of energy, but one listen is enough. Roger's voice works well for the track. The drumming, piano, and horns all sound great.

The original version of Keep A Knockin' that appeared on the Independent Manchester United Supporter's Associate Edition of the Pressure On CD single was not mastered well. You hear muffled background banter and the bass player grabbing on to his bass' frets. The version that appears on The Lot has been fully remastered and removes the studio banner and the bass noise.

One Night Stand

One Night Stand (1998 Version) 3:36
Written by Roger Taylor
Appears on:
Internet Exclusive Download, Electric Fire CD Acetate
This track first appeared as a Real Media file from Roger Taylor's official website promoting Electric Fire. Because the only way to hear it was to enter the code "one night stand" when prompted and to have it stream via Real Media player, this original release always sounded kind of murky and ran too slow, likely the result of poor Real Media streaming issues, all drawbacks of the technology of the day. In the years that followed, a high quality version has been leaked to the collecting community, sourced from a test pressing "acetate" CD-R and at last fans could hear the song in proper digital clarity. It is the same mix, but runs at the correct speed. The song itself has some nice guitar and a heavy beat which keeps it interesting. Worth finding.

One Night Stand (1998 Version - The Lot Mix) 3:53

Appears on:
The Lot
The Roger Taylor career-spanning box set The Lot features what is called the 1998 version of One Night Stand. However, it is not the original version that appears on the CD-R acetate or as a Real Media download. The Lot Mix is about 17 seconds longer and features added instrumental bits between the vocals in the first verse.
