    I don't know, didn't hear/find one yet. Krazy is extended, but also a remix, as it includes an additional bass synth part and drum/percussion parts. Making it sound more aggressive than the original.

  6. Here are some of the extended mixes I've been enjoying recently:

    Grace Jones - Slave To The Rhythm (Blooded)
    The Buggles - I Am A Camera (12" Mix)
    Queen - Scandal (12" Version)
    The Art of Noise - Peter Gunn (The Twang Mix)

    I noticed that someone else mentioned the same mix of Slave To The Rhythm... What a phenomenal track!

    I have all the Queen 12 inch versions. My avatar says it all really. I even have the first official extended version which is Staying Power remixed
    by John Luongo. This version is only available on the US promo vinyl single from 1982. I have the cd single of Scandal which features this powerfull remix and a lovely non album b-side.

    Since I recenyly got back into collecting vinyl again, I find the 12" singles more interesting than the albums.

    I know that feeling. I have not many albums on vinyl but hundreds of 12 inch singles with all them special versions on. Many of them never released on CD.

    Yep. When I got rid of all my LPs in the 90's, I kept my 12" and 7" singles. I'm glad I did.

    It like an addiction these. It's hard to stay away from the local record shops to buy a few 12 inch beauties. I'm glad the prices are still low for these babies.

    Recently went to a local record show & the only 12 inch singles that I was interested in that had higher prices (US$15-25) were the Queen ones.

    So here's a bit of a funny story. I did not find out until recently that there are two different 12" mixes for Irene Cara's "Breakdance". The song reached #8 on the Billboard Top 40 in 1984. The "Extended Remix" version on the U.S. 12" single appeared as a bonus track on the 1997 remaster of the What A Feeling album released in Canada. That mix seems to be the one used in most countries.

    On Discogs I saw a Dutch 12" single with a "Long Version" running six minutes, also released in Spain. I knew I had a vinyl copy of the song but assumed it was the U.S. release. To my surprise, I have the Dutch 12" single! So here is my needledrop of the "Long Version". :)

    It wasn't a big hit, here. Can't remember ever hearing it. Funny, the bass synth sounds like Queen's Invisible Man.

    It wasn't a big hit here either. Only Flashdance and Fame hit the charts.
