Does anyone know what the differences are between the 1981 and 1982 7" of African & White? The latter is supposed to be remixed but I can't hear anything obvious.

There are two b sides for "No More Blue horizons" and they often get confused. There is "Watching Over Burning Fields", a long instrumental track lasting 6:22 and there is No Ordinary Lover, an actual song lasting 3:03. Both tracks are totally unrelated to each other however the chorus of No Ordinary Lover is "Watching over Burning Fields". To make matters even more confusing the 2 CD collection has these tracks swapped over by mistake so some people end up thinking No Ordinary Lover exists in an extended version.

Here is the correct information for the 12":

A No More Blue Horizons (Fool, Fool, Fool) 5:02
B1 No Ordinary Lover 3:03
B2 Watching Over Burning Fields 6:22

All three are on the 2017 deluxe edition.

However there is actually another mix of No Ordinary Lover and this was released on the CD Compilation Methods of Dance.

I concur. I have both and the 1982 12" is definitely remixed. It's easy to tell that but the Inevitable 7" sounds to me exactly like the album version. I should rip them to my editor for forensic analysis and report back with my findings. When I have the time… HAH!
