BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Swear” was a 1980s pop song originally recorded by Tim Scott (McConnell) and released by Sire Records in 1983. The following year Sheena Easton covered the song for her 1984 album A Private Heaven. It reached #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    Thanks, Paul! This was always one of my favorites from A Private Heaven, and I was disappointed that the Dance Mix was omitted from the CD re-issue. Did you know it was actually a cover? To my knowledge, first recorded by Tim Scott in 1983.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi you’re welcome Christian. Yeah I knew it was a cover it’s mentioned in the description above. I also have the Tim Scott 12″ which has the LP and edit versions. I will have to dig it out and see if it’s in good enough condition for a possible future post.

  7. Ramone Says:

    I LOVED LOVED LOVED the album ..(Sheenas BEST album) and I did buy the 12″ single to complete the collection but I didnt play it much. This single disappointed me .. perhaps it was the rap/speaking/screaming combo that put me off. Too much happening in this single. There were many other single choices to give us !

    This is a different 12″ than what Sheena got us used to, and I love it for that! Of course I own it like most of her 80ies 12inches, I am very confident about the sound quality it now has and I’m excited to push the “download” button. Paul please continue the “Sheena” project. Swear!

    DjPaulT, thank you for this post. I actually liked this song so much better than Sugar Walls. Couldn’t think why it failed to chart in the Top 20.

    Would you have the Ice Out In The Rain remix? That is pretty rare.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Macha where can I find that remix? Is it on the 7″?

    [Reply]

    Macha Reply:

    Hi DjPaulT, I heard an mp3 of it, floating about on the Internet. I think it appears on a Sheena compilation disc, 20 Great Love Songs. But I didn’t know there was a remix for it in the first place. Was hoping you’d have it, as you have such a vast library.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Macha the only thing I could find was a 7″ release from the Netherlands but i’m not sure if it’s a remix. I did also see that CD compilation you mentioned.

    This is the 7″ release on Discogs if anyone can tell me if it has the remix I would appreciate it.
