Cosmos - Play To Win

Greetings, most knowledgable Jedis
I've just got both Play To Win 12"s off eBay, and ripped them into the computer, but I'm not entirely sure I've done it at the right speed.
I did them at regular 33, but they sound dead slow and come in at about 10:30.
But at 45 they sound rediculous. Anyone know the 'optimum' speed of length for them?
Also, the B-sides are listed as
Spiritcatcher Locked Grooves
and
Morrocan Jack Locked Grooves
Are these just the same versions from other releases?
Dumb question alert:
What does 'Locked Grooves' mean anyway?

Thanks for any help

The locked grooves be basically a stripped down beat of the original track which, through some vinyl jiggery-pokery, just loop continuously. it's a handy dj ting really.

I reckon they should come in at 7.53, or at least they did when i copied mine to CD.
I'm sure Tom would agree it's not the most profound of tracks, but i love it when that bass line kicks it towards the end... :D
And yes Spiritcatcher and Morrocan Jack are from previous releases, but still do it for me! I remember the first time i ever went to Fabric and he was djing and started with Morrocan Jack; first time i'd heard it. Awesome. Sadly, it has been the only time i've ever heard him play one of his own tunes!!! I've been to see him many times and have enjoyed the sets but am always left disapointed; what could be better than hearing him play his own music?????

er, maybe actually releasing his own music.......??? :wink:

Cheers Inky
I've re-ripped them at 45 rpm now, but it's all gone a bit chipmunk, so I shifted them to minus 8 and I much prefer them like that.
Vinyl's now up on eBay if anyone's interested:

Does one of these records contains the version of Play to Win that Tom plays in his 13-05-2001 essential mix ?
I can place a sample if you don't know what I mean.

Just checked the mix (which I probably downloaded off of you - cheers), it's the same song, but the version in the mix does sound a bit different. Do you know if there was a tracklisting for the mix? And did it say what the mix was called? The two I'm selling are called the Club Mix and the Carnival Sax Mix
