 The b side is a rare chance to hear Mike on vocals!

 A-side a contender for 'most mentions of an artist's name on the label'. At 5 occurrences it ties with this one.

 Oh no! I was entralled by Beryl a few weeks ago when I revisited her BBC Interview (still on iplayer) from over a year ago. Cutting engineers are a rare breed and this is a desperate loss.

 Waiting to get a haircut yesterday I browsed as one does through the assorted reading matter made available and came across this fascinating Obituary to Beryl Ritchie who pursued a career in disc cutting, one of the few female engineers thus employed at the time. "Tubular Bells" was one of her first pieces of work.

I felt other Caters would enjoy.

 Sadly this single was mostly ignored when it came out but it was an excellent track and is different from the theme on the album.

 Same goes for this one released later than produced.
