Strange Rumours

Now the builders have gone my hifi, with it's turntable are back. Our record collection is now an combination of four separate collections as my sister and husband was kind enough to give me theirs when they no longer had a record player. So I have been going through the duplicate albums of which the most interesting is Fleetwood Mac's Rumours.

The reason for it being interesting is not that is was and still is an excellent album or that it is one of the very few records that I now have four copies of. The interesting thing is one of those copies is different.

Side two is missing the track ¨You make loving fun¨. Instead it is replaced with ¨Songbird¨ which is then repeated on Side 2. Meanwhile the track listing in the centre of Side A is claims the last track should be ¨You make loving fun¨ while the disk contains ¨Songbird¨. The pressing claims to be "R/S Alsdorf 56344 A2". The other copies two are "56344 A" and one "56345 A4".

Here is a track listing

I wonder if this is a forgery or a mistake?

I'm surprised that google has not found me the answer. So if you have a Rumours LP what tracks does it contain?
