Altered Images had signalled they were calling it a day but ensured that all touring dates would be honoured, including their first ever gigs in North America. The record label decided it would be fitting to release one last song from Bite and so, in October 1983, this was released on 7″, 12″ and pic disc:-
mp3 : Altered Images – Change Of Heart
It was the third single from the Mike Chapman sessions to be released as a 45 which meant that only Another Lost Look from those sessions hadn’t seen light of day via that format, although you will recall that an alternative version of said song had been put on the b-side of single #9 Love To Stay. But hang on, what’s this on the b-side of this latest single?
mp3 : Altered Images – Another Lost Look
There was absolutely no incentive to buy this single on 7″. The two songs had been available for more than four months. So what about the 12″?
Eh……there’s no extended or dance mix, the b-side is the same….and to rub salt into the wounds the label put the 7″ versions of Happy Birthday and I Could Be Happy onto it.
Absolutely pointless. So it is no surprise that the single didn’t chart.
And that dear readers, concludes a look back at the ten singles released by Altered Images between March 1981 and October 1983. Collectively, they delivered three Top 10 placings, six Top 40 placings and a total of 60 weeks in the Top 75.
