Yes, and the 45t. is more expensive than the original and some people buy. BUT WHY?

the quality of the 7" is really poor compared to the OG 12" , i've sold my copy and kept the 12"

One of those tracks that you know from when you were a teenager but never knew the name and when you found out you just never stop playing it...stone cold classic. A true one hit wonder from this producer, but what a wonder it was.

The best remix album ever? It is fascinating to see how the electronic artists used the base material to re-envision the original tune.

Yes, it's basically the same track eight times in a row, but no, it never gets boring. It helps that the original 'Tried by 12' is three minutes of glorious hip hop, with rapper Des' arresting delivery, a catchy koto loop, and a nice sparse beat. It helps even more that the remixes are great: the stand-outs are Squarepusher's dubby, confined chop-up, the Herbaliser's swinging funk, and Trapazoid's raw, scary glitch.
