The bassline from the B-Boy mix is sampled from "First Impressions" by Shamek Farrah.

Did this 12” ever get to the shops in the uk?
I think I have a vague recollection of seeing it in hmv, and not being very impressed by the disc so chose not to buy it...!

I echo Ciccone's sentiments below. It is incredibly confusing.

I have an original copy I am looking to sell, but my research has been stunted by valuations of fake copies. It's all very unhelpful!

I hate how the price history of certain listings on Discogs are skewed by the selling of cheap fakes which are not distinguished from the genuine official items. This listing for example (Erotica U.K. Picture Disc), should have a selling price history of at least 2,500 USD, but the cheap counterfeit items that are sold through on here mis-represent the real prices of the genuine collectibles. Sellers should not be allowed to sell counterfeit items through Discogs.

I've got a genuine copy, paid £600 for it in '98. Not ready to sell it yet though!

The "Masters @ Work". It's all in the name when it comes to these guys-gorgeously dark mixes are found here! There is a reason that Madonna incorporated the "Kenlou B-Boy Mix" into her live act as the opening number for the "Girlie Show", the mix turns the dark and brooding original into an intoxicating an alluring spectacle, with sensual strings and sophisticated hip hop beats. Shep's album version couldn't be beaten, so the Master's decidedly came up with a highly inventive batch of remixes to compliment it, keeping the essence of the original, while going a bit deeper. On the house-tip, the "Bass Hit Dub" is a knockout, and ooh Luther, those Luther Vandross vocal samples add something special. Madonna's tripped out, barely comprehendible, all but forgotten (until the "Confessions..." tour) alternate chorus flys all around you, while a very deep groovy bass line plays underneath you-too good!😋

Now, with that said, William Ørbit turned in equally intriguing and imaginative mixes that are downright spooky (think of the opening score from "The Shining"), creating a sequel to the remix work he did for "Justify My Love"-no wonder M saught his craft and collaboration for "Ray Of Light".
