This review is for: I Want Your Sex
(1987 CD Single)
I used to have this CD single. Not sure where it went, but I suspect it got sold when I needed some cash years ago. Since that I have now learnt the golden rule, which is: never sell your CD's, you will only want them back again.
Having recently purchased the 2CD edition of George's "Faith
" CD (which I have also reviewed), I felt disatisfied by the fact that Parts 1 & 2 were together, but Part 3 was at the end of the album as a separate track (and even worse, it fades in). So I had to track down the CD single again. I'm glad I did, because as a complete 13 minute suite, this is the way this track should be heard. It was a mistake not to include it on the new edition of "Faith". There was plenty of room to include it. But at least through the power of the marketplace I was able to get it again and for that I am very pleased. It still sounds great. As of the date of this review (September 2012), this is the only place to find the complete uninterrupted 13 minute version... on a CD single from 1987! It is also worth noting that this is a card sleeve single, so worth tracking down the best condition copy you can.
This tracks is on "So80s (So Eighties) 8
" CD, but it is 11 seconds shorter on there. The version on So80s appears to be the original 12" version exactly as it was released on vinyl. So the CD single seems to be slightly longer than the vinyl. I have yet to investigate what that difference is, but will do when I come to review the SO80s CD.
