    Hey Paul, I was so hoping that one day you’d post more Flesh For Lulu singles, and that day has finally arrived!! Thank you so much for continuing their discography with your most celebrated rips. I’m not familiar with the extended version of this record but I’m hoping to really get into it. Thanks, once again, for sharing your beautiful work with us.

    What a suprise! One of the very best tracks of the 80s. Many people new to this song will come to appreciate it. For me, after listening to the 2003 remaster cd which has both the 7 inch and 12 inch, I have come to realize I like the single version a lot more than the extended, which is a rare exception.
