    Red-hot gospel soul from 1983, only ever issued as a white-label test-pressing; never before released commercially. Backed with some classic early-eighties soul vibes on the flip from The Helen Hollins Singers.

    Marking his 40th recording, Nick Cave, alongside the Bad Seeds, release the wonderful, reflective and very poignant, 'Ghosteen' album.
