A forgotten single from “Quartet” from March 1983 and an attempt to regain their glory with “Vienna” Version 2.0. Accompanied by a risque video and a middle section that just goes on that little too long. I forgotten it was produced by legendary producer George Martin.
“Reap The Wild Wind” is a live version from the Hammersmith Odeon gig from Dec. 1982. With The Messengers on full on backing vocals duty (sounding a bit like they were from the West Country than Glasgow on the title) and the rolling bass of Chris Cross.
Oh no, I remember hearing the B-side “Break Your Back” and thinking what the ****? Warren Cann out doing Herbie Hancock, Ultravox had gone all Street? Electro beats and Cann’s whispered lyrics
