I have the 2:52 version on the UK 12" (it's just an early fade I think) so it does exist and I assume it is on some 7" pressings. The ones in the six pack have the full version though :)

I'm gonna say those US mixes of "Dancing..." and "One Small Day" are mastered a bit faster than the original 12".

Which tracks are from vinyl. I'm assuming most of the ones from the US 12"s yes? :)

Yes, I noticed that "Alone Without You" error right away :P Not sure why they put "Soul On My Boots (Single Version)" on here as it is the same as the LP mix isn't it? Do you know if the Airplay Remix that's listed here: http://www.45cat.com/record/a4573 ... See full review

Not the early fading 7" version of "Peanuts" on here, the full LP mix instead. Pretty predictable that that would happen really :P

Pretty sure it's the only way to get "Modern Dancing", "Utter Space" and "Security" on CD still. That's really the reason I wanted one. Maybe because it was the very early days of CD. This came out when most discs were still only being manufactured in ... See full review

That's the inner sleeve of this version: https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Domino-Dancing/release/1565754
I remember that some of them were distributed without the outer sleeve by mistake. I was working at Our Price when this came out and we got a ... See full review

Does this play the correct tracks?. The tracklisting makes me think it's the same as the double LP promo from a few years ago which has the wrong versions of "Can You Still Love Me?" and "Everybody's On The Run".

The LP version is on the original 1984 CD pressing (and probably the spectrum re-issue). The 2008 Edsel 2 CD version uses the single version which is actually a bit longer. For some reason they just faded it early on the LP.

So, on the "Remains Of The Day" vinyl, you get the Sarah Cracknell vocal version of "Kiss And Make Up" but when you download the digital tracks you get the Original 12" Mix with Donna Savage singing. A little error I guess.

If 3:47 is the correct duration for "Only After Dark", then it's not the single edit (which is about 3:15). Looks like the album version is on here. Another mistake on a re-issue. Surprise :P

A-Side is the 4:30 version from the A-Side of the original 12" (The original 7" mix was only 3:30 in length).
B-Side is the 5:19 version that features on most formats of the "Warrior" single and not the album mix on "9".

Did someone find a few boxes of this in a warehouse all of a sudden? It seems loads of copies appeared for sale at once which makes me think it's a bootleg. Would be an odd thing to bootleg though!
