I Confess (Dave Allen remix) and I Confess (United States of America remix) are actually based on the same mix. The edit/arrangement is the same, but the USA version is cleaner sounding with subtle panning/stereo positioning and eq differences. I have both on their original 12" releases and never noticed until I started playing this SBS Deluxe edition in the car and realised they were the same! Only took me 35 years...
