Background Information

This 2017 compilation was released by New State Entertainment in Europe. There are two versions of this release, a continuous mix version, found on the 3-CD set, and also available as a digital download, as well as an unmixed version, available as a digital download.

On the 3-CD set, the tracks are minimally mixed with the ones that come before and after them on the CD. In this version of the album, “Beautiful Day (The Perfecto Mix)” is 06:25 in length.

Digitally you could purchase the album as unmixed tracks, where “Beautiful Day (The Perfecto Mix)” is the full length extended version at 09:12 in length. Included with the downloads are the three full mixes, but not broken into individual tracks, and in this case, the version of “Beautiful Day (The Perfecto Mix)” is the same as what is featured on the CD above.

As part of the continuous mix, some elements of “Beautiful Day” can be heard mixed into the prior track, this is less than 15 seconds, and consists mostly of an early start to the beat for “Beautiful Day”. There is little evidence that “Beautiful Day” continues into the track that follows it in the mix.

An added bonus on the second disc of this set is the track, “Skin On Skin” (Orange Mix) by Grace. This is an instrumental version of Oakenfold’s remix of “Lemon” done for U2. On the unmixed digital version this runs 07:57 in length, and on the mixed version found on CD, this song is 04:02 in length. Oakenfold remixed U2’s “Lemon” in 1993 but he went a little further with the track. He took the instrumental version of the mix that he had done for U2, sped it up slightly and started using it in his sets under the name “Orange.” He asked for permission to use it and to release it. U2 agreed and Oakenfold brought in vocalist Dominique Atkins, and they recorded lyrics for the song, now known as “Skin On Skin,” and released the song under the band name, Grace. It is the instrumental version of the song that is included here without the vocals by Atkins.
