This is the rarer vesrion (as far as I can tell) of the B&P 12"s with the edit and More Beats mixes of the original replaced by by That Greedy Beat. A less dense effort than B&P this track is still very good stuff but never seems to have the punch on it's own that the A-side manages. It's best used in the mix as heard on the 70 Minutes Of Madness JDJ mix CD.

Probably the best cut-up Coldcut have ever done. Featuring: the break from Led Zep's When The Levee Breaks; wah-wah guitar from Afique's House of The Rising Funk; Scratched up Vivaldi; Tom Baker as Doctor Who "Alright. Just One More Time" and much, much more. The Mo' Bass Remix is the extended workout where the edit is more concise. Finally More beats just leaves the Led Zep break with the occasional James Brown sample for fun. Never tired of this in 15 years.
