    Damn! I thought I'd written about this EP - I love it. This EP is one of the things 4AD excelled in, in the 1980's - creating one-off masterpieces.

    The Some Velvet Morning duet is the perfect track to play when you have a hangover. It soothes, but the edge doesn't go away so easy. Rowland Howard's sneering drawl countered by Lydia's (not exactly typical) sweet and perfectly pitched sarcasm - are wonderful exchanges, supported by strong lyrics and a timeless song.

    If your hangover is terminal you might want to enter the dark tunnel of I Fell in Love with a Ghost. Ahhhh, something to relate to in this dark, dark world!

    On a wider level, this record encouraged me to seek out various interpretations of Some Velvet Morning and the work of Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra - something I don't think I would have paid attention to before. [The works of the pairing of Lee Hazlewood and Nancy, produced a handful of great albums, recently and beautifully repressed on vinyl. For me, their greatness is chronolgical; the first is iconic.]

    Some Velvet morning is one of those songs which taps into elusive aspects of life and can be interpretted in different ways. Some see the song as a druggy piece; I read that Lee wrote the lyrics intending a different meaning entirely . . .
