The "original 12 inch mix" has a drum beat missing in the first bar of the track.
Q: Is there a Bedrock (Digweed & Muir) remix of Blue Monday?
A: There is a re-edit of the Hardfloor mix, with a longer breakdown, originally done by John Digweed. It is not an official mix/edit, nor can it be called a Bedrock remix.

Q: Why is the "original 12 inch mix" shorter on my CD single than on my 12" from '83?
A: [Andrew Morrison] "The Substance version (i.e. the original 12") is the correct version. Four beats in a bar, the rapid fill being between over beats three and four of each bar (as you hear it in other parts of the song). Just count 1-2-3-4 over each version's intro, and you'll hear that the 'International', 'Singles', and 'Blue Monday 95' versions of the original 12" actually have a few beats missing from the very first bar (hence their shorter running times). [editor's note: one beat after the first rapid fill is missing.]
Substance is the correct version. Some bozo must have missed the first beats when remastering it for the 95 re-released (and that version has subsequently featured on various compilations since).
If memory serves, the correct (Substance) version also appears on '24 Hour Party People' soundtrack and 'Retro'."
