Don' t know if this song ever was remastered, but after dowloading a few copies of this song, every one was kind of muffled with the different musical elements of the song garbled together. What I'm requesting may not exist, I don't know, but any input would be appreciated.

A couple of years ago I uploaded all their stuff. Have to check if it is muffled. Never received any complains btw.
Here are the album and single version:

I, and several others on this forum, also approached Cherry Red for a remastered re-release. Sofar they have showed no interest.

Thank you for these. I'll give them a listen when i get onto my laptop. That's too bad they never remastered their material. This song is too good to be heard with poor audio quality.

Wow, what a spectacular increase in audio quality compared to anything you can find on SS. Thank you so much.

You wouldn't by any chance have the extended version timing in at around 5:11 would you?
