Does anyone else have a copy of this with two A-side labels?

This is essentially an alternate version of "Little Fluffy Clouds (Inner Master Mix)"; it has a different beat and a few other slightly different elements, but much of the rest of it is the same. I suppose this implies it's a Coldcut remix, but no credits are given. It has a vaguely un(der)finished feel to it, which is possibly why the "Inner Master" version was released instead.

Note: unfortunately, the file as shared has digital skips at 3:31 and 5:09.

Contact me if you will sell or swap, it is the Fluffapella I want as I already have the other 2 DT versions. MP3 or wav is fine.

Trackology:
Ignoring the cataloguing and re-releases there are basically three sets/versions;
The UK ver and remix (numbered versions c/w Into the fourth...)
The US ver and remix (named versions by Coldcut) annoying spread over 2 near identical 12" and cd
and the later US/Island mixes.
<
Confusingly the short version/main mix is called both the "Dance Mix MK I Edit" and the "Seven Inch Mk 1"

This double pack is bangin. Danny T and others translates the seminal Orb "fluffy clouds" samples and noises into deep house and drum & Bass modes. The Pal Joey remix has really grown on me. floaty synths and trigger samples at 105 bpm. The one true parker breaks mix really creative goes through phases that are straight up jungle. Danny T brings his best game. The detour mix is club friendly 125 BPM dark broody house. Overall everyone uses the samples in new exciting ways and that's what a remix should be about.

I don't know much about this type of music but I can tell you that I think "Little Fluffy Clouds (Dance MK II)" is a great Ambient-ish track. I like how catchy it is and how it carries you through the whole song. I can never get tired of this single.

Anyone else have a problem fitting this record on the platter? The center hole is too tight.
Is it just the 1993 re-issue that is like that?
