    Ah, one of my favourite Time Bandits singles (but I like every single they released back in the 80s). The band released a couple of excellent well produced 12 inches, and had a fair amount of success worldwide. Too bad Sony Netherlands are neglecting their catalogue, so to date there are no expanded reissues planned. Thanks for this nice surprise Paul. Hope you’ll do some more Time Bandits soon. The band deserves a re-listening.

    Wow Paul what a big surprise! This is one of the 80s singles I love the most. I remember very well when I first heard this song back in 1985 on the german radio station called SWF3. During that time there was a special broadcast from 11 PM until midnight playing only newly released 12″ remixes. They played exactly this version and I promptly fell in love with it. I became a huge fan of the “Time Bandits” collecting almost everything they have released. “Endless road” is my favourite song by them but there are so many other awesome singles. “I’m only shooting love”, “Wildfire” or “Only a fool” just to name a few. Thanks a million Paul. Once again you make me so happy with this excellent crystal clear rip. Have a great weekend. Mine is already great thanks to you.

    Thanks Paul. Was a fairly big hit in Australia back in ’85.
    Can you rip their other hit “Only Shooting Love” down the track.
    Cheers.

    I love the Time Bandits. They were quite successful over here. “Endless Road” is a great song though I prefer the Ben Liebrand remix. “I´m Specialized In You” is my favourite song by them, being such a happy and sweet song. Maybe we will find it here some day 🙂 Until then I will listen to my very own re-edited extension. Yeah, I think it will be a Time Bandits day for me today.
    Haven´t listened to their music for a long time. So thank you, Paul, for reminding us 🙂
