Care - Whatever Possessed You (UK 12 Inch / 1984)

01) Whatever Possessed You @ 4:30
02) Besides One @ 2:04
03) Besides Two @ 1:45
04) Besides Three @ 1:55
05) Besides Four @ 1:59

A superb 12 inch from 1984 by the band Care. Care consisted mainly of  singer extraodinaire Paul Simpson  (The Wild Swans) and well known producer Ian Broudie (The Lightning Seeds). This is highly sought after by fans. Lucky for me, I picked up a mint copy from a used record bin for 1$. This was way before I'd ever heard of the band Care and years before the release of any Wild Swans or Lightning Seeds material.

I took the time to enhance these direct 12 inch recordings for the best possible sound. Re-EQ'ed and aplified slightly. All art was photographed & retouched.

Altered Images - Bring Me Closer (UK 12 Inch / 1983)

01) Bring Me Closer (Extended Mix) @ 6:15
02) Surprise Me @ 2:58

Firstly, I want to thank Jonny G from the blog  Vinyl Dreams  for doing the recording and original posting of this 12 inch. I merely cleaned up the vinyl a bit (a great recording to begin with) and added all the art from my original 12 inch.

Fiction Factory - Feels Like Heaven (UK 12 Inch / 1983)

01) Feels Like Heaven (Album Version) 3:33
02) Everyone But You (B-Side) 3:30
03) This Is (B-Side) 3:03

Bonus Track

04) Feels Like Heaven (Extended Version) 5:48


Track 1-3 was taken from this 12 Inch
Track 4 was extracted from the  2 CD release 'Dance Classics (Pop Edition) Vol. 7'

Obviously the sticker on the front of this 12 inch is incorrect. I'm uncertain who's to blame. I've decided to include the extended mix in this post just because I was disappointed when I found out that it wasn't included. So there you go...the ever elusive 12 Inch version. I'll post more info regarding this post at a later date.
