The mix of "This Is Not A Love Song" appears to be unique to the release. It's not the 'Remixed Version' from the 1983 12" single/1988 CD single. It can best be described as a dub of the album version - minimal vocals, with heavy emphasis on the horns, and added saxophone.

I would point out that the "Body" 12" mix here is different from the one on the "Seattle" 12" (which clocks in at just over 5 minutes). They're both mixed by Eric E.T. Thorngren.

Further investigation would show THIS 12" mix is actually the US 7" mix as featured on the US 7" for "The Body"
