Sheena Easton – Eternity (Shep Pettibone Mix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th March 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

A. Front

Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one on November 17, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Eternity” was the first and only single released from Sheena Easton’s eighth studio album “No Sound But Heart”, the album’s original U.S. release was canceled, but the album was issued in Canada and Mexico. The album was eventually reissued in 1999 by the One Way Records label, marking the first time it has been officially available in the United States.

‘Eternity” was written and produced by Prince and remixed by Shep Pettibone. Prince also plays guitar on the track under the alias Freddie “The Phantom”. The single failed to chart and was Easton’s final release on the EMI label, where she had started her career. She subsequently moved to MCA Records the following year in 1988.

The b-side “Shockwave” is a non-lp track written by Narada Michael Walden and guitarist Jesse Johnson.
