T his unique and rare 3” CD release was the Japanese version of UK 7” vinyl.

The original CD idea was for 3” and 5” CDs to be the counterparts of 7” and 12” vinyls, respectively. But this concept was quickly abandoned as the 3” CDs turned out to be pretty inconvenient to keep in stores and on shelves. In most of the markets smaller CDs ended up being used as rare promos and special issues, but in Japan many of the Pet Shop Boys singles were still released in this format.

G erman Being remixed CD is, as a couple of other German Pet Shop Boys CDs those days—the exact equivalent of British 12” vinyl; so exact its artwork even included the original UK catalogue number.

This release was unique to this market, hence such big market value nowadays. But it is somewhat justified, because even today this CD is the only digital source of the two We all feel better in the dark remixes—Disco 2 remix album (where the latter appeared in edited form) doesn’t count, as it was originally mixed from vinyl.
