Wikipedia has this blurb in it

"A 1987 reissue of this title as a budget-priced single album omitted "Door to Door" and "Sweet Hitch-Hiker", both of which were originally recorded and released as a trio. A remastered single CD was released by Fantasy Records in 1999 which restored the two missing songs."

Basically they got cut in the 1987 re-release because they had both been recorded after John's brother left the band, the album itself was not recorded in a single session, instead its bits and pieces of their various tour stops in 1971/72.
Houston, This is Aquarius signing off.
