BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
“Loveland” and “Cake” are tracks recorded by American new wave band The B-52’s. Both tracks were produced by David Byrne of Talking Heads. Both songs were taken from the EP Mesopotamia. The original Island Records vinyl & cassette release in the UK contained the extended versions of “Loveland” and “Cake”. This was an error, and the discs were quickly recalled and reissued with the correct version of “Cake” however the extended Loveland remained. These versions never appeared on the American release.
In France both songs were issued as a special 12″ promo. As far as I know neither of these mixes have appeared on CD.
