They Reminisce Over You is a classic. Even Straighten It Out is pretty good although the remix is not good. Stick to A1. Seems like in Hip Hop the remix is usually mediocre.

Digging in the crate tip: Sometimes the hot remixes are b-sides on other single promos. The b3 Vibes mix is only on the promo (eventually comes out on the Japan only Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - Unreleased Joints release in 1996), uplifting but also super chill Roy Ayers styles vibes and it's the cut really worth seeking out (102 BPM). It gets live with some cutting and scratching to bring the track out. The b1 They Reminisce Over You Remix is a not terrible re-interpretation of T.R.O.Y. Maybe not as essential as the original but listenable. The A side Straighten It Out is also listenable in a car or headphones situation but more underground and not really a dancefloor friendly jam. b3 is where it's at.
