You said it was sick so I looked it up and agreed. Now you say it's funny. So if I say, yeah, it's funny, are you gonna say I'm sick?

I put on Songbook and the click is definitely there.
It is also on the original vinyl, which I have had since its release.
Why the poster says it is NOT on any of his/her "repackaged" CDs is beyond me.
CDs are often re-mastered from the original multi-track recordings, and if the click were on an actual channel, it could have been originally included in the final 2-track mixdown, but eliminated in some CDs, re-mastered later on.

It sounds to me like a "click track" -- an electronic metronome, if you will which sounds in the headphones but is not on the actual tracks.
Well...not usually anyway.

I assume you are talking about the United Artist Collection which I have and I can definitely hear a click on Song for a Winter's Night.

Richard has added this thought today:
Hello again!
Had one additional thought on the clicking sound on SFAWN.
I was practicing Red's lead parts on Miguel from the 1971 London BBC DVD you so kindly provided to me, and I noticed the same sound-- not as regular as SFAWN, but there nonetheless.
As you know, I mixed the sound for that show, and I can assure you there was no metronome, click track or the like.
My best guess is that it was Gord's middle fingernail hitting the pick guard. It is a common occurrence, I have experienced it myself.
I have noticed from recent memory that he had a pad of some sort stuck to the pick guard of his D-18. Perhaps it was for that reason.
Have to ask him for the ultimate answer.
