does anyone here know or even possess the following item:
Does anybody know if the story about this record is true?
"Yes, DJ Junior Vasquez (Sound Factory founder) did an unsolicited remix of the While the Earth Sleeps. He presented the remixes to Deep Forest and Peter Gabriel for possible release. Deep Forest loved it, but Peter flipped out (he doesn't like having his music remixed). Peter wouldn't give his ok for it to be released. He even threatened Junior with a lawsuit if it ever saw the light of day. John Peter and Eddie Baez (two other DJs) somehow got a copy of the remix and were going to bootleg it, but Junior found out and threatened to sue John, because he didn't want Peter Gabriel to sue him for something he didn't do. Quite a few people got copies of the remix through Junior or found one of John's bootlegs.
There are three versions of the remix which have popped up on the Internet at one time or another:
While the Earth Sleeps (Vasquez Mix) 7:29
While the Earth Sleeps (Junior X-Beat Mix) 9:32
While the Earth Sleeps (Vasquez Dub) 5:10"
I mean: it couldn't be worse than an Engelspost Remix.

I think it's funny, that Junior Vasquez did remixes of Angelique Kidjo feat. Peter Gabriel's "Salala".
The man seems to have changed his opinion about Junior Vasquez remixes.
