    I love when you give your fans so much pleasure Paul!! I love reading the missives of gratitude and heart-felt praise. I love this post too!! I can’t wait to hear the live version of “This City Never Sleeps” one of the most atmospheric songs these guys did. And I love how this song was featured in the film “9 1/2 Weeks.” Who can forget that erotic scene with Kim Basinger!?! Great love making song!! And Paul, their “Paint A Rumour” is an ultimate fave of mine. So hypnotic and trance inducing. Exotic and erotic in its own right too!! Thanks for preserving these vinyl memories. I am really, really impressed by you.

    Panting!!!!

    One of my dream rips, thanks, Paul! I bought this 12″ at the time, and am amazed this full-length version has never been released on CD! The track may be an icy electro-ballad, but it’s intriguing how the ‘doo-wop’ backing vox hinted at the r’n’b sound they preferred on subsequent albums (such as ‘Thorn in My Side’).

    Enjoying finding your blog again after about 5 or more years absence.

    I believe the credits for the string arranger should read Michael KAMEN instead of KAYMAN. It seems an obvious spelling error. I am confident I am correct in this assumption. His credits are too impeccable for it to be anyone else.

    Michael Kamen was originally a member of the US Band The New York Rock & Roll Ensemble , who did 3 LPs for ATCO in late 60s/ early 70s before moving to Columbia for their final two LPs. They also appeared on the S/T to Zachariah on ABC Records ab out that time. After the band dissolved, Kamen did one more LP solo for ATCO circa 1972.

    I met him first in the spring of 1970 when he played with TNYRRE at my college. First time I ever got stoned was with him. Next saw him in 1972 in the waning years of the band after they lost their lead singer anbd were playing small clubs between their contracts with ATCO & Columbia.

    Being a Julliard graduate (as were at least two other members of the band where they originally began)he was soon to compose a concerto I heard premiere back in 1972 locally in concert with The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and the TNYRRE. it would then appear as two longer movements with Eric Clapton playing guitar in his 24 Night stands that he did in London in the 1980s. He was then to appear doing the String arrangements for Pink Floyd on The Wall, and soon to score all 4 of the Lethal Weapon movies with Eric Clapton, David Sanborn, Randy Crawford and others in attendance. That lead to him being asked to score Kevin Costner’s Robin: Prince of Theives soundtrack and composing the number one hit, Everything I Do, I Do For You sung by Bryan Adams.

    Next he was the conductor/arranger?composer of the orchestra that accopanied Mettalica on their clqassical fusion LP. He did one solo CD in the nineties (sorry don’t have the title) featuring his orchestral music (on Warner Brothers, like the Lethal Weapon soundtracks) and on one more multiartist compilation of composers in the mid 90s.

    Incidently, you might remember me under my old name Duncan before I started transition in 2014. We spoke of me selling some 12″ singles from my collection to you. Are you still interested? I see spaces here I could fill…and I would be happy to let them go to you because I would be sure I am selling to someone I KNOW could appreciate them. I would be happy to see them reappear on this blog. Please let me know. BTW, I have a 12″ remix of Sweet Dreams that is incredible, an extended mix that runs 9? or 11 minutes long as I recall. I found it in cheapo bins and snatched it right away. Doesn’t seem to be RCA based but then I haven’t looked closely at it for a few years…in my storage with all the other vinyl.
