Hothouse Flowers – Love Don’t Work This Way (12″)

Different from the album, but in a good way ? Fred had argued against the fact and included the album version for a comparison. A forgotten gem of a track from ’87 that I thought must have been a cover.

It was produced by Flood and engineered by Dublin’s Pat McCarthy

“See-Line Woman” gets a live cover, originally written by George Houston Bass in 1933! Recorded allegedly in 1986/1987 in the Top Hat in Dun Laoghaire , Dublin. Extended and as funky as hell. A Festival tune.

“Freedom” keeps that live feel, funky and soulful. A great sax solo from Leo Barnes. Such a very, very underrated band.’t+Work+This+Way+(1987+12”).rar/file
