Most CD's out there that have the Extended Mix seem to be sourced from a vinyl rip. I've listened to almost all discs out there containing it and I've found that this 1990 compilation from A&M has the best sounding version for those interested in obtaining it.
found a clean copy of the 12 damn good sounding
