    It's originally from Lyn Collins "Think", though it could be a sample of the sample

    I don't think it is official. All 12 inch releases of "Abracadabra" I know of used either the album version or single edit.

    Oops, Sorry, thought you were inquiring about an original 12 inch of IKO IKO :cheers:
    Due to popularity or movie/film/commercial use some of these received a new lease on life.
    Baltimora-Tarzan Boy is a good example. 1993 saw a new single and 12 inch remix for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie

    Supertramp "I'm Beggin' You (Mad House Mix)" The greatest Shep Pettibone Mix not actually remixed by Shep Pettibone. Too bad there's no youtube of it!

    I like that one. Paul's go at a bit of disco flamengo style.

    Now, it's not extended much (5:02 v. 3:46). However...

    "African and White" - China Crisis, 1981.

    Yesterday I found this European (Made in Germany) Seal - Crazy CD Maxi. I think it's a great song but in this I was mainly interested because of the metallic red paint job (the picture doesn't do it justice). I looks very shiny and marvellous.

    Anyway, track 1 seems to be a single version, running 4:30 vs the 4:47 minute album version. Track 2, labeled as "Extended Version" is actually a kind of dub mix that runs a bit longer that the album version (5:09 min) but sounds so different I never would have called it "Extended Version". Track 3, called Krazy, is the real extended (remix) version and runs for 6:26 min. Nice.
