Mine, the 1996 released 'repress' says:
31R001 A-01-1-1

Note: This was defo a 1995 release

Track title is actually: Chillin' Out (94)

Track orders also seem to be incorrect! In spite of what the label says, Chillin' Out (94) is the A side track! (on the repress at least - maybe the 95 release has it on the B side?)

It is possible an earlier release of this was made, with the alternate mix, but I would imagine it was only ever TP only.

Right, can we get to the bottom of this once & for all?

Two full releases of this record.

1995: grey & white "31 records" label and matching house sleeve, as currently seen in the database http://www.rolldabea..._records/31r001
a: technology.
aa: chillin' out ('94)

I don't have this version but a friend at the time did, released around the same time as Skanna - Find Me if I remember rightly... as far as I always thought, this has the same expected version of "Chillin' Out" with the opening piano melody and You Ain't Heard Nuttin Yet think break / FMCD#1 variant in it. I also remember from hearing earlier on Kool FM for the first time that summer.

1996: more familiar pink, red & white "31 RECORDS" label and matching house sleeve,

This is the one I have, which I purchased slightly after Randall played it on his 26.06.96 Kiss show, which I was surprised about as it was an 'old' tune to me, so why was he playing it (obviously, as it was being reissued). My copy also still has the Fat Cat sales sticker & hand written blurb on it, which confirms from that time as their store on Earlham St, Covent Garden shut in 1997. As far as I was concerned, it was exactly the same tracks as the earlier press, just a revamped art/design for the sleeve & labels

Though, the track details on label are wrong, and is actually "Chillin' Out" on the a-side / logo side. It's 45rpm and is stamped (ie. an EMI pressing)
31R001 A-01-1-1
31R001 AA-01-1-1

Just doing a rough timing at ±0%, its ~7m20s long and it's the one that starts with the piano melody, with the same break as described above, as heard on the Doc Scott Artcore 2 mix cd

Now I'm seeing all this suggestion that one version has one version of it and the other the other, that the normal expected version is actually the 'deleted mix' and even on discogs that the later release is from 1998 but as far as I am aware this is all nonsense so what is going on??

What adds more to the confusion is someone has added the run-outs 31R001 A-2-1-1 b/w 31R001 AA-2-1-1 to the later version, and, presently, has a duration of 6:35, though looks like that was inherited from draft from the older one... though someone has since updated that to have duration 7:26, which corresponds to mine.
