Let me go - Heaven 17

Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group Human League and formed production company British Electric Foundation (BEF). After releasing one LP they recruited their friend Glenn Gregory on vocals to form Heaven 17. 'Let me go' was their last unsuccessful single before they released 'Temptation', a song that would storm the international charts.

I boycotted Heaven 17 as part of a bitter row with my sister, spanning many years. She was putting some of my favourite artists down, and so I felt it was my duty to do the same with her favourites. When I saw Heaven 17 live as part of the Here and Now tour in 2001, I had to change my mind. 'Let me go' is my most recent Heaven 17 purchase; maybe there's more to follow.

My collection: 7" single no. 3472
Found: Empire Records, Den Haag, December 11, 2008
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'Let me go' / 'Let me go (instrumental)'
