Issued as a promotional 12" by Atlantic (DSKO 144). As to the above query: (1) same songs as the commercial release pictured above, (2) no distinction as to side, either on the label or in the embossed catalog number on the out tracks and (3) "...Dancer" is 6:06 and "...Family" 8:04, confirmed by us.

As we do not maintain in our archives commercial releases which are identical in every respect to the promotional release except number, we are unable to offer any further information on the issues that you have raised. Hope the above has been at least marginally helpful.

according to other sources, the time listed for side a and b are correct, however, the tracks are reversed with side A being We Are Family and Side B is He's The Greatest Dancer. IF someone actually has this yellow/black 12" vinyl, perhaps they can play it to see who is correct. The side with the DK4710 is side A and the He's The Greatest Dancer is the name of the single no that it is necessarily on that side.
