Do any proper digitals of this actually exist? Instead of the vinyl rip.

Go Sheep must be a derailing of Autechre's Basscadet (Tazmx). Go Sheep is like Tazmx played at half speed.

Is "Go Sheep" here an edit of the original version of the 12" pressing (27 seconds shorter)?

The cover pays homage to some of the graf kings who were active in Manchester in the 80s and 90s. There are some real legends on there.

One of Autechre's Gescom collective's finest moments - three tracks that straddled the duo's period between dance floor accessibility and MSP-inspired electronic geekery, The Sounds of Machines updates Kraftwerk's legacy with stunningly original results that haven't aged in the 10 years since it was produced.
'Puzl' sounds like 'Metal on Metal', all hissing machinery and otherworldy percussion. 'Go Sumo' is possibly the group's most listener-friendly outing to date, a shimmering electro track, while 'Go Sheep' takes the former track's main melody and twists it round slo-mo midnight dub kickdrums.

The clear vinyl version of Sounds of Machines does not actually exist, despite being listed in some discographies...

Puzl makes judicious use of Cybotron's Clear (it also inspired the name of the label), a seminal tune from back in the day that many believe kicked off the whole electronic music shebang in the first place. Thank you, Juan Atkins.
