Much of Gang of Four's catalog is missing in the U.S.

Some weeks ago I suggested some Spotify changes in the "List of songs to be added to AM 2017" topic and added the songs in the collaborative list there. I repeat my post here:
Neopard wrote:I have added 17 songs to the collaborative list. I think they are better versions. They are:
The Stone Roses | Fools Gold (9:54 12’’ version instead of a 5:24 version)
The Tornados | Telstar (original version instead of a re-recorded version)
Donna Summer | Love to Love You Baby (16:48 full-length version instead of a 3:23 version)
The Specials | Gangsters (original version instead of a re-recorded version)
The Surfaris | Wipe Out (original version instead of another version)
George Gershwin | Rhapsody in Blue (version with Paul Whiteman Orchestra instead of a solo piano version)
The Allman Brothers Band | Whipping Post (live at Fillmore East version instead of the studio version. According to Wikipedia: "It was this recording that garnered "Whipping Post" spots on both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list and Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".")
The Skatalites | Guns of Navarone (probably original version instead of a live version)
