After a bit more listening and analysis, I believe things went
something like this:

1) Original mix was how it exists on the DCC (cold ending to jam, edit
into 4/4-3/4 section):

jam (complete) -> [edit] -> 4/4-3/4 -> 4/4-4/4 -> "It is a cold winter..."

2) A decision was made to shorten the jam. An edit piece/crossfade was
created by fading out the jam early while simultaneously starting up
the 4/4-4/4 section (the one between the 4/4-3/4 section and "It is a
cold winter...").
3) The extended jam was edited out and the edit piece/crossfade put in
its place. Doing this effectively repeated the 4/4-4/4 section:

jam (fades) -> 4/4-4/4 (copy) -> [edit] -> 4/4-3/4 -> 4/4-4/4
(original) -> "It is a cold winter..."

The DCC just removed the edit piece/crossfade and put the original
long jam back in its place.

Those Were The Days essentially took that and recreated the extra copy
of the 4/4-4/4 section as found on the edit piece/crossfade.

Hopefully that makes sense...
