It was as recently as 15 April 2018 when I featured the eighth solo single by Paul Haig:-
Released in Sepember 1984, the production is credited to B-Music/Dojo; in other words Bernard Sumner and Donald Johnson. How many of you wanted to shout out ‘Confusion’ just before Paul’s vocals kicked in?
The b-side is also worth a listen for a number of reasons – it’s a fun and fast-tempo cover of a Suicide classic that was produced by Alan Rankine.
The same b-side as had appeared on Big Blue World (featured in Part 7 of the series) and so it won’t be re-posted.
As for the a-side, the April post featured the 7″ version as released here in the UK. The sleeve at the top of this posting is that of the 12″ Belgian release on Les Disques Du Crépuscule and here’s the two tracks:-
mp3 : Paul Haig – The Only Truth (extended)
mp3 : Paul Haig – The Only Truth (instrumental)
The latter is a particular joy, especially if you’ve any fondness for mid 80s era New Order.
