    fabulous – spent ages tracking down this on vinyl only to find it had a horrible scratch through the A-Side, so good to finally hear this properly after all these years!

    The picture disc 12″ contains the same three tracks and the credits for Heart Of The Sun (slash & Burn) include “Mixed by Red Box and Mixmaster Phil Harding”.

    Paul. nice to see Slash & Burn and Vera’s Husbands Mix on here as Cherry Pop failed to include them on the 2008 expanded reissue of The Circle & The Square.

    Keep up the good work!

    In my wildest dreams, I couldn’t imagine all that you possess Paul!! This is such a gift to be sure. I really like this group, but only know a little of their songs. I love coming here because you pull-out-all-the-stops when it comes to lavishing our ears and hearts with phenomenal music. I love the cover of this twelve too, it haunts me!! Nothing quite like the art of the 12-inch. You are a miracle Paul in every way.

    You are luminous like the Sun, Moon & Stars!! Basking in your light!!

    Jeff

    P.S. Thank you again for “Witchcraft” on Halloween. I wish more people commented on that record though. Makes me a bit sad. Sigh…

    Jeff, I know a lot of Paul’s devotees are in the UK (like me) and Book Of Love aren’t really known here…that may go some way to explain the lack of comments. But I and hopefully other UK readers/listeners do download and give the US only hits a spin…sometimes finding a real gem!

    So for second time today I say…

    Paul keep up the good work!
