The only thing I've never read or heard for definite regarding the whole story behind this production is... When was this actually made and pressed? As I've spoken to others and can vaguely remember hearing it as early at the latter part of 1989 and some think the same. Is it 100% a 1990 release? Unfortunately, these pedantic OCD feelings to confirm things do not always correspond with my old memory anymore!

Any real confirmation from anyone of when this first appeared?

Loved this when it came out (still do). Picked up a copy from Bluebird in Streatham when it first came out.
Good to read the history about it in the post by ian_s.

Dave Angel talking about this in Muzik magazine:
"I recorded the Sweet Dreams remix at home using two tape decks, a couple of turntables and a keyboard. Everything was recorded totally live. I then had 500 one-sided promos pressed up myself with no label details or any other information on it.It just had "XXX Orgy" printed on the centre. I took a few copies into Blackmarket Records and when I wnt back a few weeks later they told me that some A&R men from RCA, The Eurythmics record label, were looking for me. I though "well, what have I got to lose?", so I arranged a meeting. They immediately laid £15,000 on the table, saying that they wanted to release it properly. However, Annie Lennox didn't want it to come out because I think she thought I was just this geezer from the back streets of London, but Dave Stewart was into it, so it got the go-ahead."

This is the version to have, alot rawer than any official release, and features the vocal 'get on the floor...' at the start, then drops the bass riff but played here using a classic old style bass sound. The beat is alot harder too, topped with an almost cheesy sounding organ, played roughly. To give you a comparison, if you remember the DJ Hype mashup of The Fugees 'Ready Or Not' some years ago, it has that feel to it.
