This five track sampler for the Best
of 1990 - 2000 arrived in early October 2002 and featured tracks from
the upcoming compilation album. A double 12" vinyl set and a matching 5"
CD were both released at the same time produced by Island in the UK.
Of note to collectors was that this release featured new edits of Discotheque
(Hexidecimal Mix) and Salome (Zooromancer Mix) which pointed towards the
fact that the versions on the compilation would not necessarily be the
same as what had been previously released.
The CD was released in a card sleeve type of packaging with one internal
sleeve, and an additional external sleeve, similar to other releases for
12" DOUBLE VINYL:
Even Better than the Real Thing (Perfecto Mix) / Discotheque
