Forever autumn - Justin Hayward

In 1989 the Jeff Wayne epic 'War of the worlds' was re-released, including for the first time on the cd format. To promote this, two singles were re-released as well: 'The eve of the war' (a re-release I'm still looking for) and 'Forever autumn'.

It's almost needless to say that these re-releases were not a commercial success. 'Forever autumn' did not reprise its 1978 chart success at all. But at least it's a pretty new sleeve and a nice collector's item for fans of 'The war of the worlds'.

My collection: 7" single no. 935
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, July 7, 1989
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Forever autumn' / 'Thunder child'
