The originally issued version of "Splash" omitted the introduction and opening bass line (= the first 1:33).

According to the discography from Mosaic MQ5-209/Columbia C3K 65362, the four rejected interludes "are composed fragments with no improvisation and... were not assigned master numbers. Chick Corea plays organ and Herbie Hancock plays electric harpsichord." Frederik Adlers has persuaded me that Hancock is playing a Wurlitzer electric piano and Corea an RMI Electra Piano.
