The playback could be controlled via keyboard, making it possible to hear distinct parts of the track separately. This version contains the "take my hand" vocal sample also used in "You Could Feel The Sky".
  • "Seven Forty Seven" was released in 2009 on Warp20 (Unheard) as the first track. This version contains an eerie element that also appears in "R35TT A06", but here it is much clearer and slightly faster.
  • It has been documented by fans that the vinyl version of "Seven Forty Seven" can be played at both 33 1/3 and 45 rpm, revealing different elements of the song in each version played.
  • "Seven Forty Seven" is likely in reference to the Boeing 747 aircraft, which was first entered into service in 1970. Many themes of BoC's music involve references to air travel and the 1970's.
