Uhm, the mix of WEG is still unavailable elsewhere, the Paninaro mix could
only be found on the ultra-scarce Italian 12" (good luck finding a copy
today!), the mix of Opportunities (Version Latina) is only available on the
also very scarce remix 12" of Opportunities. The Shep Pettibone mix of LCQ
was unavailable to all us Europeans, in fact everyone outside the U.S. -
I'd say that the original Disco-album is a bloody good collection, at
least for us collectors and mix-lovers!
