Window widow - Maarten Peters and the Dream

Being almost bilingual by now, I still don't know exactly if the expression 'Window widow' would be used by an Englishman. I've always thought it was a weird title, but anyway... The track itself is a beautiful ballad with a neat little story of a woman who loses her husband and keeps hoping for his return.

'Window widow' was the last single taken from Maarten Peters' second album 'Burn your boats' (1987), and it was re-recorded especially for this single. As such, it was never released on cd, because many Dutch bands didn't release cd-singles yet. The single didn't chart, which makes it even more collectable, I guess.

My collection: 7" single no. 572
Found: Free Record Shop, Utrecht, 1987
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Window widow' / 'Sunset in Rio'
