Just over two weeks ago, I posted Pure, the debut single by The Lightning Seeds. It went down well with most of you, and I was particularly struck by the comment left behind by Echorich:-
Pure is a great song, but I have always been partial to Joy. Broudie’s writing partner on some of the early tracks was Lotus Eater, Peter Coyle – a genius move really. Broudie would bring on heavyweight songwriter (IMO) Terry Hall to collaborate on the brilliant Sense single and album. As an artist he was a very, very smart producer…
Which led me to dig out my lesser-played 12″ early Lightning Seeds single.
And to write up this post on Friday 15 October with my thoughts on Pure, its-b-sides and a further track on Cloudcuckooland, the debut album by the band.
The stupid thing was that I forgot to post the links.

My head has been hanging in shame for a week.
