Another version of the 12" is available on the Rodeo Media release "Dance Classics 37 and 38" (taken from vinyl).

The 2011 compilation Phil Harding Club Mixes of the 80s is digitally remastered/restored from the original studio master tape found (higher generation/higher quality) and is without the imperfections.
