One of the greatest SAW moments. The definition of 80's Hi-NRG disco.

Has anyone seen a copy of the 12'' of this with a different colour combo ?
Where the black stripes down either side are, on the front...on at least one copy they were pink.
There's a guy in Reading, UK has a copy.
I've never seen another one since.

I don't know who owned the actual record but I was in a house in Reading and had a look through 'the lodgers' music collection.
There was a copy of this 12'' [the performance mix, I think] which was exactly the same as the regular one only the stripes down the edges on the front were pink.
The purple tops the guys wear on the back were the same shade of pink too.
Anyone ever seen another ?

Don't know if anyone knows this but a friend of mind,a dj in canada told me of a 12" version that he basically never heard of again but he though was quite unique,it was played on late night radio in Canada and he remembers distinctly it having the roar of a motorcycle motor through out the mix and similar to the performance mix and murder mix but different again it was around 8:52 in length,very curious if anyone has crossed it during Mixing/Djing
