    I didn’t even know that this was a Japanese single . Thanks Paul for the excellent stuff. Hopefully you’ll put out more ABC ,Thompson Twins etc in the future?

    Another surprise Paul. I’m in the North East being clobbered by snow, so this is a welcome way to thaw my “frozen” mood out. Thanks for the warmth.

    You’re welcome Jeff. I know exacly what you are going through. We had a catastrophic ice storm here in Tulsa in 2007 pretty much the entire city lost power for over a week. It was miserable. I hope it get’s better for you soon. Stay warm!

    Thanks Paul!!

    Do you happen to have any of Poison Arrow singles that feature “Mantrap (The Lounge Sequence)”. Its the instrumental of “Mantrap” (which is itself a slow version of “Poison Arrow”). Its really hard to find. Can’t even find it on youtube.

    Nice surprise. Didn’t know that The Look Of Love Part 3 was ever a B-side. Part 2 is my favorite part, that string arrangement by Anne Dudley – wow!


  7. Anthony Shaw Says:

    Loving the Valentine’s Day themed songs this week Paul, and as always beautifully ripped with stunning artwork.
    Any chance of a re-rip of the Dionne Warwick’s Got a Date 12” with it’s ‘contentious’ cover? That’s ALMOST Valentine’s Day themed isn’t it? Almost??


  8. lordofvhs Says:

    thank you ! have a nice Valentine’s day


  9. Jonathan Says:

    I was thinking about this earlier – can’t imagine why! David Palmer, the drummer, was a few years above me at junior school. I still remember him at the front of the assembly hall playing his snare drum in front of the whole school. Happy Valentine’s Day, Paul.


  10. Jermajesty Says:

    Just when I thought I’d heard every version of Look Of Love!
    This (Part Three) is a cool mix, got a more club (in the 80s sense of the word) feel to it.

    Lexicon Of Love one of my top albums of all time – those lyrics! 😀
