Here it comes again - Black

So this is an odd one. I ordered this promotional 7" single because it only had one side - the B-side was reportedly empty. And indeed, although it looks like this side can be played, the only sound on side B is the sound of silence.

On the A-side this single features 'Here it comes again', the second single from Black's 1991 album. But while the commercially available 7" contains the album version of that track, this promotional 7" single features a remix! I knew this remix from a promotional cd-single released in the USA at the time - but this single was made in England! How very confusing. Why would the record company promote a remixed version of a track when it isn't available commercially? Answers on a postcard please...

My collection: 7" single no. 5986
Found: Ebay, received January 29, 2019
Cost: 3 pounds
Tracks: 'Here it comes again [remix]'

  1. I missed that link on the mobile version of the site. Bass sounds higher in the mix, or even a different bass line in parts. Guitar part missing at start (opening notes)? Extra vocals at fade out. Also, his spoken "here it comes" at the oboe(?) solo jarred me (his spoken Scouse accent always sounds so different to his singing voice, but I am a Man Utd fan, lol). Still one of my favourite tracks off of "Black" (along with "This is Life") and an all time top 10 Black song for me....he knew the beautiful heartbeat of melancholy, even if he hated the label. Thanks for the share! E.

  2. Do you have any other Black/CV rarities available on Picosong?
