The above is one of my favourite sleeves and when I was younger and much much skinnier, I always thought it would have made for a great t-shirt. Actually, I still think it would make a great t-shirt.. but I have to accept that it just wouldn’t look stylish at all on me.
It’s from a single released back in 1983, and a copy of the 12″ has been part of my collection all that time. The thing is, I’m not actually all that fond of the 12″ cut as the extra three and a bit minutes beyond the 7″ (and album version) take something away from it. It veers to being a tad self-indulgent. But feel free to disagree:-
mp3 : Paul Haig – Heaven Sent (7″)
mp3 : Paul Haig – Heaven Sent (12″)
While I’m here, I’ll also shove up the b-side which sees Paul’s cover of a Sly Stone song segue effortlessly into one of own songs and between them run to six minutes. It’s passable……
mp3 : Paul Haig – Running Away/Back Home
