  1. Did this one myself the other day, funnily enough. I have a remix 12″, too that I’ve not done yet. Anyone want a rip of it?

  2. It is. It’s not as good as this version, if my memory serves me right, but OK. I have a couple of other TCC 12″ers, too…

My username on discogs is simonali if anyone wants to look at what I have, but my collection list is far from complete…
