Session Details: 

Jazzdisco and Ruppli list "The Champ" as one track with a single matrix number. Bruyninckx lists them separately with matrix numbers 5104 & 5105 respectively. Allmusic provides a hint as to why it should be a single track, calling it "A six minute jam, released as a two-part single". -JS
