Sally Warmington Wow! I haven't heard know this song before, it has an amazing groove and it really blossoms in the extended outro - I think the rhythm will be popping up in my head all day! Thank you for sharing this gem with us! :)

James Ingles Aw man yes this is awesome but since I already have the F&J set I’m a bit disappointed it wasn’t something new in my inbox 😆🥲 Favorite track: Don't Break This Rhythm (Full Version).

kiks2019 Was great to have alot of these baides and alt mixes of tracks on the Flotsam compilation and i’m sure there’s more out there. The extended mix of ‘Perspective’ also has a great outro, why it was cut for the album i’ll never know.. same with ‘Slowburn’ from PG1 with that big dramatic intro Favorite track: Don't Break This Rhythm (Full Version).

This full length version of Don’t Break This Rhythm features on the digital compilation Flotsam and Jetsam and prior to this was previously unreleased.

The edited version was the B-side to Sledgehammer single.

In the deep dive video for the i/o song Olive Tree, Peter talks about how on that song the extended outro was one of his favourite moments:

'It was one of my favourite moments for the band to get loose and groove. I write long things anyway, but I always extend the end as very often the band relax when they get to the end of the song and then suddenly the playing becomes something else, so if you've got some groove for them to do their thing then you can have a lot of fun with it.' - pg

Hearing this, immediately brought the extended outro of this song to mind...
