4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Warren Stalley on 1 Aug. 2002
Format: Audio CD
Both Reason for Living singles are really a good excuse to hear tracks that didn't make it on to the North Star album. They are not however throwaway or insignificant. This cd1 contains Winter Haven High and Rainy Greys and Blues as additional tracks. Reason for Living is a great single with a sly humour when it opens with the first chords of Born to Run. It is lifted straight from the North Star album and if the extra tracks weren't so good I would advise against buying this cd. But what comes next justifies the price of the cd single. Rainy Greys And Blues is in the vein of Over My Head but here Roddy's voice aches with emotion startling you like ice cold water. What I love about this track is the music doesn't swamp Roddy's voice which gets better as years go by. Winter Haven High is a ballad of stormy weather and longing for shelter. To sum up I would say if you've got the North Star album and love it then the cd singles for Reason for Living are well worth purchasing.

Another release from Aztec Camera's mastermind 8 Sept. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This single only adds fuel to the fiery hollering of "Where's a B-sides collection, Roddy?" As with most of Aztec Camera's singles output, the flipsides are more interesting and emotional than the A-side. Winter Haven High is a touching, yearning ballad of unity and strength. Rainy Greys and Blues is a low-keyed song of devotion, quite possibly one of Roddy's best set of lyrics since the first album. At the chorus he sings, "I wish I could be you/and you could walk a while in my shoes/the love you've given me would free you/and wash away those rainy greys and blues."
Just two beautiful songs that any Aztec Camera/Roddy Frame fan won't want to miss.

Two Essential Tracks for Roddy Frame Fans 14 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The two new, mellow tracks on this disc are right at home with my North Star favorites "Hymn to Grace" and "Autumn Flower".
"Rainy Greys and Blues" wraps Roddy's amazing lyrics around a beautifully simple core of bass, piano, and cymbal. If you like pieces like "Song for a Friend" or "Mattress of Wire", you need this single more than you need oxygen.
"Winter Haven High" has a bit more vocal intensity and complex instrumentation. Once again, anyone else would sound like they were just showing off their poetic prowess with lyrics like these. Combined with Roddy's moving performance, though, they only help make a song in which you notice something new each time you hear it.

worth the cost! 10 Mar. 2003

Format: Audio CD
Brilliant single and worth it for Winter Haven High alone. Don't know how that got left off the CD.
