I have no idea what the OP is talking about. The instrumental isn't a remix, it's a rerecording, and there are no remixes that I know of, only edits.

There were remixes done for the facedown maxi...I'm assuming it's one of these, clocks in at over five mins

Princevault mentions 2 such remixes indeed, I wasn't aware of this. AFAIK they were not circulating so far, though: u may have discovered a brand new leak biggrin biggrin

Very likely the remixer is prince himself, since Pvault mentions no remixer.

What's it like, how does it differ from the released version?

Its better IMO. more of a chilled out late 90's RnB feel

It shares the "drops" sound with the Instrumental NPGMC version!

It's the same as the instuments remix but with vocals. A friend of mine taped off the radio in St. Louis Mo. on magic 108.

U might not like the taste, but I'm still going to stick your face in this Funk

In the late 90's I bought what looked like a promo maxi single of Facedown - only to find out when I got home it was a homemade bootleg. I bought it from some crappy now defunct record store. It had the Holy River Remix on it. So I've heard it. I didn't keep the cd, I assumed this was some fan done remix at the time.

So it's been out on a limited boot CD print for 15+ years except it somehow never made it to Work It 2.0 and other collection, hence the fact that none of us had heard it before.

Wow!

I don't know I just remember a small crappy record store and buying a cd I thought was legit and thinking it turned out to be some fan made crap and throwing it away. I remember hearing the remix though. The shop was a hole in the wall one man run record store who just sold stuff be personally liked. He went out of business pretty quickly, I remember one day just seeing the store empty.

So this is a full vocal version? And it's apparently a Prince sanctioned remix? It's good? Damn. Assuming it's good, I hope this gets released someday. On a special deluxe edition of Emancipation. Let me pause while I laugh to death.
