Went to 'Action Records' in Preston city centre where they have lots of rare stuff and I found something that I didn't know existed until today.

I checked there catalogue of stuff and under The Divine Comedy was 'I've Been To A Marvellous Party 2x12" Promo' for £5. Brand new and never been played. Shocked

Bought it and a couple of the remixes are very good especially 'Trouser Enthusiasts Formaldehyde Spritzer Mix'.

I've put them on a CD as I don't know how rare it is but as it's vinyl then it will be a play/record once then never again so it stays in mint condition.

The question is, is it that rare? As I've said I didn't know it existed until today.

Let me know if I've uncovered a gem. I'm quite pleased with my find anyway.

I've never heard of 'Trouser Enthusiasts Formaldehyde spritzer mix' before, so I am a bit jealous right now! It certainly sounds intriguing.

There are 4 remixes altogether:

1. Trouser Enthusiasts Formaldehyde Spritzer Mix
2. Sharp South Park Remix
3. Floorgazm Remix
4. Pink Noise Mix

Best ones being 1 & 4.

Like I said is it rare?. I'm sure 'Sponge Monkey' will know.

I couldn't say how rare it is, but it comes up on eBay from time to time. I can't remember how much it usually goes for though.

Damn you Phil. Thanks to those links I've seen loads of live stuff I haven't got.

It's going to take me hours to download them.

Seriously, thanks for that. Very Happy

Not particularly. Keeps coming up cheap these days, got my set for a fiver too. There aren't many in total available, but in the sense of being 'rare' meaning collectable probably not.

I have those, got them a bit after the "release" (if ever there was one) at a collectors shop for a reasonable price.

I've got the 2 x 12" records and also got them "professionally" copied onto a CD by a local firm who does that sort of thing. Problem is, the remixes all suck (unless you like repetitive samples and monotonous drumbeats).

You can get the Sharp Souith Park remix on CD officially, as it appeared on a compilation album called "Club Class Alternative". That CD was really cool as it had some really good remixes of other songs I like - here's a link - http://www.discogs.com/release/157571
