This is a very nice release. Great packaging with good sounding records. The best part, for me, is that the instrumental version seems to be a full version including a cold ending. After that you get 1-2 seconds of studio chatter which is hardly audible. This might be the closest we will get to any Police archive release (minus the 1986 Sting demo of De De Do Do De Da Da Da and the alt.mix of Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic on the 'Classics' surround sound compilation).

This is a lovely little purchase for hardened police fans of old as it has the original release and the nice rock mix with the twin guitar by andy and an instrumental too. So well worth paying half what i paid on rsd day!
