Pretty sure this is the Carl Anderson version, check the Murray Head version on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvvD3NO9O0QI've never heard these lyrics before, I've always heard the ones used in the movie (Carl). Same for the other video of Murray Head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVqfZ4KH1I8 so I think the lyrics were rewritten for the movie and that's the lyrics that get covered. So yeah, this should credit MH, and the cover should credit Carl.I think the movie didn't use the actual soundtrack recording as I think it has little tweaks. I might just be confused by all of this ^^
And the widget says "original 1970 concept" ... Pretty sure this is the 1970 original by Murray Head, only the art work here is wrong and MH should at least be co-credited (reported). I will submit the film version for good comparison.
Ok, this has bugged me for quiet some time, eventhough I was the one who added it, I'd like to replace the original with the real "original" recording, but can someone confirm the little research I did on this. The original is the one with Murray Head (which has "for the world is catching fire"). The one we currently have as the original is the movie-version which is sung by Carl Anderson (and has "you have set them all on fire" among many other lyrical differences)
