    The cover is by Peter Blake. Reminds me a lot of Balthus.

      Picked this up for 15 euros at a Rotterdam recordshop recently. When I first played it, I thought my amp was still turned off. And then the music started to come on slowly and quietly. No noise, no clicks, no crackle. One of the best pressings I ever came along. The dynamics are off the scale. And I also love the extended version of Taking the Veil, wich for a long time I didn't even know existed. Wel done, you eighties record manufacturers. And well done David for making this magical music.

          I know, it's unbeliveable but Taking the veil were also released as a single CD! ! ! ! ! ! It must be an ultrarare item which I have never seen any sign of (not even in any official discographies or listings) apart from my trip once to the Virgin Megastore in London in ca. 1991. There was a large sell out of D.S. related issues only on mini-CD single format. I've bought the Forbidden colors, Pop song, Rain Tree Crow - Black water, and also Ghosts and Art of parties from Japan and I've missed to buy the rest because the Taking the veil I already had on maxi single and I never thought the CD-single will be an ultrarare item. Believe it or not that's the same with the Silver Moon single CD but it had only album version tracks, so I decided not to spend the money for it! ! ! ! ! I saw them both and that was the faliure of my collector-life.
