Phill--you are correct.  I was misinformed.  It is the promo that lacks 
that mix.  I did pick up the official release and it has the extended 
mix.  And I have to agree with Daniel:

I do think that the extended mix of SEB needs something more though--it 
is very much in an 80's style, but still a little short for my liking.  
I think it needs another 2 or 3 minutes worth of goodness.  I also 
think that the substituted synth line should have been left in there--I 
think it's one of the best assets of the shorter mix.  Ah well...

And for that "dub mix" of Here...boring.  It's not a dub, it's really 
an instrumental.
