    Cheers Paul, keep ’em Mr Mister 45’s coming, especially those hard-to-get-in-good-quality 12” remixes from their ’87 album “Go On…” (i.e. Stand And Deliver, Something Real and the fab gospel remix of Healing Waters)

    No Remixes for the first two singles which was such a shame! Luckily they relented with the third. And it is a corker!
    80s day-glo fashion and big hair didn’t age well, but 80s music? Always classic!
    Thanks Paul!

    Well, Kyrie got a single version which is different to the album version.
