    Is this mega rare or anything, BTW?

    Never heard this one before.
    After listening to both sides, I love the song “Borderline” – great song.
    Somehow I’m not sure if it was good to give us this one just before Christmas since that it sounds for me like a great summer song 🙂

    Anyway, thanks Paul for this great post and your work.

    Wow, what can I say…This is really cool. You win the prize for this one. Never knew this existed. So 70’s. Borderline reminds me of Jackie Blue. And Black Blood reminds me of Last Exit era Sting.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thank you Joey. Ya know I thought the same thing especially “Jackie Blue” glad I wasn’t the only one 🙂

    Jeff Reply:

    Hey Guys,

    Count me in too. I immediately started singing “Jackie Blue” by the Ozark Mountain Band (I believe). Great record and adored the flip-side as well. Great Christmas present!!

  16. Dirk Says:

    Thanks Paul for this unique early gem. Great soul-pop with Annie Lennox almost raw and naked in the voice booth. Long way to There must be an Angel, but i prefer this though 🙂 Somehow i could hear this covered by an american discoshuffle coverband.

    I had no idea this was even a thing. Thank you!

  18. Vermillion Says:

    Thanks Paul! Never owned this one myself as copies were always too expensive. Heard ‘Borderline’ for the first time a few years ago but have never heard the B side before.

  19. Ray in Australia Says:

    Only just listening to “Borderline” now… I love Annie’s voice in this 🙂 Way more confident than I expected her to sound in 1977… fantastic singing 🙂

    DJ Paul, I’m wondering… with your recent Eurythmics post’s, might you be planning on bringing us “Let’s Just Close Our Eyes”, on the b-side of “Love is a Stranger” 12 inch? It is one track that I’ve never managed to find in all these years and your recent upload of “The Walk” 12 inch has sparked my hopes again. That’s if you have it of course 🙂
