    There are two entirely different sets of tracks recorded two years apart with entirely different sets of young ladies. The first set has very good vocal perfomances, a simple yet tightly planned and aesthetic arrangement and slick production values. The session with the original Expose was a big hit. This is the single you want. If you don't care about the dub version which is not essential, and you have the compilation album Exposure, STOP! You already have the version that made Expose marketable as a brand name. Once "Expose" had a big hit, anyone could be Expose and sell records.

    The original Expose went away after this single hit the big time. It might help to imagine the new girls strangling the trio that achieved fame for Expose and leaving the corpses to the crows. The changeling Expose, used the dead girls' recording on their album as if it was their own. Following the album they could record their own crap on a stick version of the dead girls' catchy hit and it wouldn't matter how awful and stinky it was. The album cover and the really crappy single would share the same cover and more units of both would sell, although the album version and the new single had nothing in common.

    This 1985 release is the good single. The other one is total garbage compared to the one that actually achieved hit status on its own. Don't be fooled by the ambiguity.
