The regular version of the song El Condor Pasa, by Simon & Garfunkel, has a length of 3:06, but on the wiki page it is reported that there is a longer version of length 4:20. On youtube there is a version of length 4:16, which I suppose is the long one cited on Wikipedia. However, I have been looking for the original release containing this long version, on discogs, Spotify, and many other databases, but did not find it.

Does somebody know something about it?


Comparing the soundwaves of the original version and of the long edit, it's easy to see that the latter is just a homemade edit. In fact, in the long edit, the chorus is repeated two additional times: once after the first verse, and once after the third one.
