Does the CD version of Enjoy "Further Over The Edge" (with vocal fragments) exist anywhere on vinyl?

This pressing sounds amazing - guess they used the DMM masters for this one (as the catalogue number would suggest)

It seems that Universal are now selling this title as CDR in Europe (now means 2016). Bought at Saturn retailer, factory sealed.

BPM are simply too slow to be classified as drum n bass. From the era it was produced and the breaks and rhymes I'd be tempted to classify it as trip-hop. British DJ's doing the mixes too..

Terrific album. I have the 2008 One Little Indian double 45rpm vinyl version. But classified as drum n bass? Gtfo

As Bjork (from what I gathered) intended, this is less of a "remix" album and more of a "remake" album. Hyperballad sounded really great with a string quartet, I Miss You was good with a different temp and tune, and My Spine, as an original track, is great.

This is incorrect. Track A3 on the reissue is Enjoy (Further Over The Edge Mix). It is not the Hyperballad version that appears on the original One Little Indian pressing.

This LP is intriguing, as track A3 seems to be identical to the 'Enjoy (Further Over the Edge Mix)' that appears on the CD edition of the album, apart from its containing vocal fragments from 'Hyperballad' instead of 'Enjoy'. There was an 'Over the Edge Mix' of 'Hyperballad' that was featured on 'It's Oh So Quiet' CD1, but this is clearly not the same mix.

Also, the way the vinyl is pressed is FINE. Pressing it loud enough to fill two (or, ridiculously, three) vinyls would have led to lots of distortion, as on the practically unlistenable vinyl pressing of Vespertine. If it's too quiet, turn the bloody thing up. You'll notice that the louder tracks are cut in more space anyway: on visual inspection, A3 appears to be about twice the length of A2.

There's so much crappy remixes that exist on Bjork's tracks... but here, each remix give something new to the tracks.
Almost every track has a unique style and listening to those gems is a pure pleasure giving Bjork's voice a new dimension. Tracks 2, 3 & 8 are priceless.

This is one of the best remix albums ever. Bjork's music is a muse for so many musicians. Her voice, words, and passion make people push their musical abilities to the next level. To explore the boundaries they might not have traveled too without her motivation. My only complaint about this release is that the pressing is very low and I wish it was a 2 or 3 LP instead of just 1.
