|Credits | Chronology|
The song begins with all the five parts like on the original vinyl record. But, Part III guitar solo was dropped out before the 1st verse. The saxophone on Part V remains the same, but without the machine-like hum that segues into "Welcome To The Machine", instead it uses the wind sound effects from "Wish You Were Here" linking Parts V and VI. The same wind effects are used to bridge "Wish You Were Here" to Part VI of "Diamond" like on the original vinyl record. Part VI is shortened. Parts VIII and IX were also dropped. Finally, the riff that links Parts VII and VIII is repeated several times as the song segues into the introductory passage of clocks of the song "Time".
