Below is a message that Crystl (Dan Chapman Trainer) sent me on FB after I commented in the original thread it was a shame it wasn't the mix everyone thought it was going to be.

Ez bro did you end up purchasing ? So btw I saw your message and just to drop some history on you - this vip I’m releasing is rare as fuck man. It’s THE very first Raw and un touched Dub that I produced in the same day as the tape version everyone is talking about which is exactly the same vip but with a few different edits . I actually made at the time another version which nobody ever heard either which I would of loved to of found too. I personally played the vip dub I’m releasing back then and it’s the dark Crystl vip . As far as I’m concerned- this is it my brother . What some people obviously don’t know as I’ve never spoken about it is that I made several dub demos back then with Pete parsons that day and it just so happens that the ‘tape clip version’ is the one that Dj’s got. That’s it . The vip I’m releasing is THE only one that I found in my old dats and was ecstatic to finally find it as I’d been searching high and low. I stand by what I’m releasing as the original vip because it is and even Dj’s didn’t get this one I’m releasing. :) 👍🏻 hope that helps and thanks for your support

Now I dunno what to think after reading some of the other comments on here! He made out that we're all the privileged ones to be able to have this exclusive mix when the 'tape clip version' as he calls it is clearly a much better tune.

Why no credit for Pete Parsons? He clearly had a major input into most of Crystl's tunes.

Surprised Crystl let something like this be released the way it has. IE by a bunch of two bob c*nts

+1 on shit mastering too... and the unreleased version not the same as the OG one on the tapes from back in the day??

Nice sleeve work though, aside from the hardcore junglism tramp stamps and childish 'haters' quip.

Good luck RubDJ shifting this.Laughable. Doesn't even sound like being remastered (2018!?)

The volume on this repress is too quiet seeing it was supposedly remastered but still good to have a mint copy.

Great little release, well worth getting and you will be able to as its getting a repress so ignore the scalper prices,
