    Great 12in single , my copy has the B side label on the A side - not sure how rare this would be!

      The colours on the 2 labels of my UK 12" are different : red instead of blue on side A and blue instead of red on side B (compared to the labels posted here). Layout is exactly the same.

        A truly magnificent cover version of The Supremes classic, this one. Despite its (typically) 80s linndrum programming appeal for the year 1985, Colourbox delivered a powerful, timeless update, making it a classic all of their own! Grahame's vocals shine with absolute magic, effectively, effortlessly and in stark contrast to the track's hypnotic, tour-de-force arrangement. "The Moon Is Blue" is a mesmerising (and in typical Colourbox fashion - confusingly arranged) song, adding a touch of blues to it, lit with a gothic spark under the blue moon spell.
