    Paul, do you know if the double 7″ of this release features unique versions of Heaven & Here Come Cowboys? They are both listed as “US Single Mixes” but they could just be the normal versions. Any idea?

    Hi Ross I don’t have that double 7″ so I am not sure but looking at the track lengths on other releases they look about the same. Maybe someone who has it will chime in and let us both know.

    Thanks Paul! I’m guessing they are not new versions as well. If anyone knows, I’d love to hear.

    And thanks again Paul. This site is such a valuable resource for 80s music lovers.

    Great song. Great band. Richard Butler still sounds great. Looks the album art inspired the look for the mobile site which looks awesome.
