An edited version of Midas Man from the album Novella was released as a single in 1977. The single edit is 3:32 compared to the album version's 5:45, and appears for the first time on CD as a bonus track on the 2019 re-issue of Novella from Esoteric Recordings. It's a good song, but as is normally the case with single edits of album tracks, this one offers no real value over and above the full version and will be of interest only for curious fans and collectors. The Esoteric Recordings 3CD expanded and re-mastered version of Novella that comes in a clamshell box is however a simply gorgeous package and the ultimate edition of that excellent album.

The B-side of the single is The Captive Heart, also from Novella. This one is identical to the album version. Both songs are rather low key and therefore not really representative of the range of the album from which they are taken.
