First single from Gone To EarthThe Mendelsohn remix only on 12″.
A Bird of Prey Vanishes into a Bright Blue Cloudless Sky only on 12″.
It seems that not all 12″ records (VS815-12 have the Mendelsohn remix. The sleeve does not mention the track but does the name of Julian Mendelsohn. On some versions the label does mention the remix track.
