The Orb 'A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld'

It's all been a bit guitary round here recently. Not that that's a bad thing but to balance it up a bit here's some wonderful ambient house from The Orb. There were myriad versions of this, including the first batch of singles that included Minnie Ripperton's vocal sample (subsequently removed by lawyers), and versions across 7", 12" and cd that stretched from three minutes thirty four seconds to nineteen minutes seven seconds, and also different mixes and remixes. There were Peel Session versions and the lovely Aubrey Mixes (the Aubrey Mixes album was deleted on the day it was released). This version is five minutes twelve seconds long, and from a dance compilation album. I'm not entirely sure which version it is off the top of my head, and I'm resisting the trainspotter tendencies within me to figure it out. Surely if this ambient house business is going to work we can't get all twitchy over versions and mixes can we? I'm sure someone can enlighten us.
Edit- OK. I defeated myself. It's the Why Is Six Scared Of Seven? Mix.

Tonight at the deathly parents' party I watched small cumuli scutter acros a sunsetting sky - 'Oh look', I said, 'Little fluffy clouds! I know exactly what to play next!!'

'What?' they said.
