As one - Sam Brown

This 12" single represents a discographical mystery within my collection. Sam Brown released several singles from her second album 'April moon', all of which appeared on cd-single. Yet, I've never seen a cd-single for 'As one', just this 12" single with three exquisite B-side tracks. So was there never a cd-single? If you know, let me know.

'As one' was the last single drawn from 'April moon', and was not rewarded with a chart placing. It effectively ended Sam Brown's recording contract with A&M, because when she presented '43 minutes' a good two years later, the company did not want to release it, for fear of its lack of commercial appeal. Fortunately, the album still came out after the contract was ended after some legal wranglings. For '43 minutes' represents Sam's finest work.

My collection: 12" single no. 185
Found: Record Exchange, London, 1993
Cost: 1 pound
Tracks: 'As one', 'Tune with no name (part 2)' / 'Think about your troubles', 'Smile'

  1. Many thanks for this - haven't heard it in years. Like you, I never saw a CD single version either.
