Good value on this 4 tracker from Mr. Cole with 4 different versions of his previous hits, 2 being live renditions.
Released in 1986 and helping promote the album, “Easy Pieces” and the classic “Rattlesnakes” to the American audience.
The lead track gets a remix by Mark Saunders (before Bomb The Bass) in a very sympathetic remix to this slightly obscure classic – reminds me of a quieter Pixies. (It only got to number 38 in 1986 in the UK Chart)
“Lost Weekend” gets a typical Langer / Winstanley extended mix (not really that long but very different)
The live tracks are brilliant showcasing Cole’s guitar work, especially on “Forest Fire.”
