House of thorns - Fiat Lux

While I was not impressed with the 7" single of 'House of thorns' by Fiat Lux (see it here), this 12" single pleases me more. It features a remix of the title track plus two B-side tracks.

The remix of 'House of thorns' makes it sound less like a demo and more like a track that could actually be danceable. The first B-side, 'Threes company' appears on the 7" single too, but the second B-side, 'Sally free and easy' is a bonus, and a good one at that: it's a modern version of a folk song written in the 1950's by Cyril Tawney. It's how Enya would sound if she was a bit more experimental.

My collection: 12" single no. 409
Found: Record Exchange, London, 2000
Cost: 50p
Tracks: 'House of thorns [remix]' / 'Threes company', 'Sally free and easy'
