The captain of her heart - Double

I've always liked the track 'The captain of her heart' by the band Double. I bought the single as soon as it was released, but I never really thought there was a 12" single. When I found it a decade later, I was interested to find that there was a 'full version' of the track.

This full version adds an impressive 35 seconds to the track, which I have to agree ain't much. But I took it home anyway.

My collection: 12" single no. 434
Found: House of Rhythm, London, 1997
Cost: 1 pound
Tracks: 'The captain of her heart (full version)' / 'Your prayer takes me off part 2 (dub)'

The captain of her heart - Double

There aren't that many Swiss bands that achieved international success, but Double managed it in 1985 with their single 'The captain of her heart'. It reached number 8 in the UK singles chart. Furthermore, it was a top 10 hit in the Dominican Republic, Italy, Canada, France, Norway and Germany. Interesting enough, it only reached number 11 in Switzerland.

The band consisted of Kurt Maloo and Felix Haug. The sleeve of this single pictures four members, but I couldn't find information about the additional two...

My collection: 7" single no. 368
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, 1985
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'The captain of her heart' / 'Your prayer takes me off part 2'
