+   A unique, slightly different mix/edit.
++  Released with a red/purple sleeve and a blue/yellow sleeve.
+++ Not confirmed if the tracks are the regular UK remixes or not.
*   In fact "Touched by the Hand of Dub".
**  Actually "Blue Monday 1988 (dub version)".
*** Actually 12" version of the original "Blue Monday"

Q: Can I find the DJ Only Mix anywhere else than on the UK 12" promo?
A: Yes, actually the DJ Only Mix is the same mix as the Dub Version.

Q: Did 808 State remix Blue Monday?
A: 808 State did record "Blue Monday" and "Confusion" in 1988, they did not remix the tracks. Originally "Blue Monday" was called "So Hot" because of Gerald Simpson's voice. The tracks, "Blue Monday (so hot mix)" and "Confusion (acid house mix)", were released on 12" by Rephlex (CAT 806 EP) in 2004.
