Side 2 Label: AL9-8432 SB


At the end of the print run of these records and cassettes, Arista
replaced the original version of "Daydream Believer"
with the updated '80s version (AS1-9532) found on this page.

Sealed copies (or still in the shrink wrap) with the green rectangle sticker
shown below should have the LP with the updated song.


Updated Daydream Believer Remix

Side 2 Label: "AL9-8432 SB-RE1"


Sometimes the side 2 label is no different, but the run-off groove or dead wax
will have "RE-1" scratched into it; this will confirm this LP has the updated version of the song.
