There is a later (1982?) release using the orange/white Trojan label. These copies didn't have the free 45.

The 6th disc has labels from Them Laugh And A Kiki on both sides, I contacted Trojan about this and they told me all copies are like this.

Some nice rarities on this with a bunch of common things to, is there some rule stating that anything that Trojan release has to include 007?

The past few years has seen a significant surge in demand for ‘skinhead’ or ‘boss’ reggae from the late sixties and early seventies.
Last year, in response to this demand, Trojan released an expanded CD version of the classic ‘Monkey Business’ LP, which originally saw issue as a vinyl LP in 1980, at the height of the 2Tone era. And it is that seminal collection that provides the basis for this set, comprising 20 of the most popular dancefloor fillers from the boss reggae era, performed and produced by some of Jamaica’s greatest talents, spread across ten 7” vinyl singles – the format for which they were originally intended.

Note that sticker reads "Free inside, one copy of Skinhead Moonstomp." Presumably this would have been a bonus 7" of the song by Symarip. Does anyone have any more information about this?
