Great but I've Got Mine - No 7 inch edit included in this Labour of Love Deluxe Edition (2015-2017) Why? 7 inch still not on CD

I've Got Mine - No 7 inch edit included in this Labour of Love Deluxe Edition (2015-2017) - Why - 7 inch still not on CD I think!
But this is a great re-release although it took a couple more years to appear on amazon UK after I originally ordered in 2015, then to be have the release cancelled... it seems some CDs were around, very strange, anyone know the facts re the delay to 2017, if so please comment - Thanks
The 12 inch mix is here, thats good.
.
I've Got Mine - No 7 inch edit - Interesting release from UB40 not on any album release. The single mix has not been released on CD, not on any greatest hits, even when you think you have located it on UB40-Red-Red-Wine-The-Essential on amazon.
But then it's an edit of the extended version but longer than the 7 inch.
It's released on the UB40-Labour-Of-Love Deluxe (2015-2017)(3CD) but it is the extended version... but in reality the 12 inch goes into a dub instrumental, so the single is 3:11, so fade out the 12 inch from say 2:58 - 3:11 and that is the single mix/edit. Why Universal/Virgin/DEP did not add the edit to one of the 3 discs on this Deluxe release is a mystery to me, loads of time/space that could be used on any of the 3 discs..
If you locate a single edit on a CD release, write in the comments - Thanks

Enjoy. I didn't know many of artists but I collect extended mixes and love discovering new to me, but old music.
Buy at the right price. There is a box set for volumes 1-10 and 11-20

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Singles and a Good Album, My Man Is On His Way (1978) has a good groove + Excellent 12 Inch Mix - Vinyl Sourced CD?, 14 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Young & Restless (Audio CD)
Interesting release, some good tracks here and a 12 inch mix. The remaster sounds OK to me. Retta is new to me, Expansion Records usually put out good stuff so I gave the CD a go.
Retta is the Wife of Al Goodman of the group the The Moments and Al wrote some of the tracks on this release, plus was an Engineer [Recording] and Produced it - not bad!.
(Sending Out An) S.O.S. reached a UK peak of #28 in 1975, the other two singles flopped but maybe they are Northern Soul Classics, you decide.
My Man Is On His Way (1978) has a good groove and there also a bonus 12 inch mix included.
Retta was in The Devotions (2).
Cheers

Album 6.5/10 stars
Singles released 8/10

Update;
After a few more plays this album becomes a grower, so i move to Album 7.5/10
Playing on the headphones I think I'm picking up some slight distortion on the ballads especially which indicates the source is a near mint vinyl.
I would be interested in other reviewers comments on source.

Tata is a great singer and I must admit I discovered her while watching 20 Feet from Stardom and then via the soundtrack, a bit late maybe but at least I made it. This is a great album, buy and enjoy 4/5.
