Something a fan just told me - the 7" version of Play to Win is just the album version. The so called 7" mix on the compilations was an unreleased/alternative version.

Love the booklet.

They are still giving out replacements discs.

I've already listened to the tracks, so i'm good on those.

Where did you buy from. I still need this and the Edsel note is great news.

This synchs with my research too.

Discogs for the win:
7168376-130 Heaven 17 - Play To Win (The • Virgin • Years) (Box, Comp + CD, Album, RE + CD, Album, RE + C... yello99
100.0% positive (97) £50.00 10-Nov-20 11:38 AM


That was the cheapest I could find. There is a copy for US$60 , which isn't bad either. But you will have to contact the
seller directly, as he is not using the Discogs marketplace to sell it.

I checked EBAY/AMAZON, and a whole bunch of mass market direct-resellers, and they were either out of stock, or even
more pricey.

So discogs is more reliable. It turns out the guy that had, also had the replacement discs too, so technically, I don't
need another copy of them, but whatever, I didn't know that at the time, so I'll end up with a 2nd set I guess.
