if there's two mixes, it's news to me. the record was remastered from an original copy that someone generously allowed us to use.
everyone involved in this tune was contacted, and despite all remembering the tune and being able to sing the chorus, no one could locate even a copy of the record, let alone the tape.
i hear the differences in the synth line, but it's also hard to really pick up on because the DDS clip is so sped-up (and noisy).
i don't know anyone who owns this tune besides Jeremy from DDS.
if someone does, step up and post the matrix # and i'll compare to the copy we used.
as for the records sounding bad, ear of the beholder. all things considered, they sound good to me, but that's obvious, right?
