    Paul, here is the beauty of your site! I am a Culture Club fan, but I guess more of the casual fan. Here, you make available singles, one (meaning I) am not readily familiar with. I am excited to hear this song. So looking forward to “experience” the magic you infuse these rips with. Very excited. I see there are some edits here. Looking forward to that too. Many, many thanks!

    You’re welcome Jeff. This was the follow up to “Move Away” and was only released in North America it didn’t do much though. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

    Thank you so much for posting this! Sadly this was left off the “So80s” 12″ collection.

    … along with half the dynamic range of the tracks included. I sold my shitty sounding copy for peanuts, and I rarely sell anything. 🙁

    Thanks, Paul. This is totally new to me.
