There was a singles collectors box released that specifically stated that it would contain 4 7" vinyls

That was indeed extraordinary...and I only know it from the (audience) recording
Has anyone already mentioned the sweet rhythm? Such a great tune for "slow dancing"

A shame, for sure. I think MOS easily could have become a radio favorite, one of those songs where you actually listen all the way through the 7 and a half minutes cause it's so good.

I prefer the album version with 'the stone was semi precious' verse in and the longer instrumental before solo and for the outro, however it was still a nice listen. It would have been interesting to see the reception it got had it been the first single, unfortunately what most of us on here think doesn't always represent great sales or a great chart position these days but it might have given a better impression for the album than boots.
