This contains a different version (not just a different mix) edited together/performed specifically for the US market. This version omits Tony Banks' swelling organ intro, then features a differently mixed instrumental track and alternate vocal from Peter Gabriel. Instead of the prog 'big finish' of the album version, a completely new ending was performed and added/edited in. It features Gabriel singing something like "on the road you're on" over to a fade (apparently this bit was part of another piece they had in the repertoire dating back to 1970 [in rehearsal anyway]).

This take of "Watcher" is very different than the LP version: there is no introduction, and a completely different ending. A remix of this 45 version is on the "Archive" box set.
This version is also availlable on the CD/LP "Reflection - Rock Theatre" (released somewhen in the 70s). It's a complete remake with an alternative strukture, some different guitar riffs and "new" vocals. In the end part before the fade out Peter sings also vocals never heard on the original version.
