Long alternate mix of the album track without additional percussion and with a completely different second half of the mix. As the vocals continue throughout the whole song but are repeated at the end it seems some vocals of Bob were looped to create this mix.

This is not a version what could be suggested by the title “Part Two”. In fact an extension to say the second part of the extended 12-inch mix starting with a fade in. Only with this extension the track runs longer as on the album.
USA 7-inch release: Island 1979, a-side: Wake Up And Live (Matrix: XAA0165S) / b-side: Wake Up And Live (Part Two) (Matrix: XAA9166S) (2,45)

Wake Up And Live (Long Album Mix)

“Wake Up And Live” and “Wake Up And Live (Part Two)” mixed together to have an extended mix of the album track. The running time is shorter as the sum of both parts´ running times because of an overlap during the fade-in and fade-out.
Previously unreleased in this mix. First released in two parts in 1979.
Island CD release: Rebel Music Definitive Remasters, 2002 (6,39)

Blackman Redemption Version

This track is titled “Version” on the label of the 7-inch but I think the proper title is “Blackman Redemption Version”. The bongos are added to this version so that it also could be called “bongo version”. Basically instrumental featuring some lead and harmony vocals and some echo.
