Say what you will about the music, to each their own. The actual sound quality of this pressing is excellent. I found a copy in VG+/EX shape and it has almost no surface noise and no skips. No one DJd my copy.

There is a Master Room pressing of this in existence too, sort of a promo, I saw Carl Cox use one.

Richards answer to Rhubarb & custard, Charly etc etc Aphex fans that take themselves to seriously should kinda like the (Ghost Mix) though but its basically a break and some typical Afx spooky chords with a pacman sample.
Choci & Finn mixes are decent enough 91/92 style remixes.

Wanted to try B-Side at 33 (yes I know it's supposed to play at 45) and it sound surprisingly good !

I don't agree the Choci and Mickey Finn mixes are stand-out tracks. The only thing they're doing is mashing up the original in a very strange way, I can't imagine someone could dance to this beats or enjoy listening them. Perhaps this release doesn't offer high quality Afx, but it's worth buying for the title track. The Caustic Window bassline mixed with the pacman sounds (Richard is a arcadefreak as you know) works pretty good. Recommended for Old School sets or just to remember the good old days.

Just average a record. Why? Lack of soul, lack of depth, lack of labour (a good laugh it is however!). Highly overrated these days although mainly found in the sales bins 10 years ago. Sought after because this is Aphex Twin. Food for speculants (what's new?), AFX collectors or (real!) hardcore dj's (RIP) only.

A little known release from the Aphex Twin. Both the Choci and Mickey Finn mixes are the stand out tracks here, being decent early hardcore tracks. And yes despite the label both tracks should be played at 45 not 33.
