BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989
*I had originally posted this 12″ on the old blogger site. After getting several requests for it to be included this Halloween. I decided to re-rip the vinyl, I am also pleased to be able to offer it in flac format for the first time. Enjoy!
“Witchcraft” was the third single released from Book Of Love’s 1988 album “Lullaby”. The song failed to chart in the US or UK.
Female names included as part of the back cover artwork (Enchantra, Hagatha, Clara, Endora, and Esmeralda) come from the song’s refrain itself, which in turn is a direct reference to some of the witch characters from the television show “Bewitched.” Point of interest: of the witches named in the song’s refrain, all are named as a part of the back cover art except Tabitha.
