There is a cut on the promo copies, namely "10 Commandments On Vietnam", that isn't going to be on the released version.

There's a track from it on the current fRoots Radio podcast - http://www.frootsmag.com/radio/playlists/12/08/

(And just possibly some other stuff you might like as well)

I've got two promo/review copies and it's not on either of them. At only 38 mins the album I have does feel like something might be 'missing' though. Perhaps the extra track is only on US promo copies?

And for those old-fashioned types who still prefer physical CDs to new-fangled f-roots downloads,there is a track on the free covermount CD with the new issue of Uncut.

I now have a copy of the US promo. The track is on there and has quite a powerful message. Allegedly it's been withdrawn because it samples a speech by Matin Luther King's widow Coretta and who ever control's matters on their behalf has refused it's use.
