Leave It on 12 inch single
Leave It on 12 inch single

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

As it’s half term for me and my family this week, I dipped into the archives and found the episode I released almost exactly 5 years ago. It was recorded in my car as I travelled to Nottingham for work. It tells the story of finding a Leave It 12 inch single in a charity shop and includes my thoughts on the item. It’s a bit of a blast from the past!

  • Where did I come across this item?
  • Is it any good?
  • What was the point of 12 inch singles?

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier.

No singles were released from Tales From Topographic Oceans – unless you know differently…so we have skipped right along to Relayer and its single, Soon which had an edit of Sound Chaser on the B side. We also discuss Cruise to the Edge and there’s plenty of other news as well.

  • What does Soon sound like, ripped out of its rightful place in Gates of Delirium?
  • Sound Chaser as a B side? Really?
  • Is there anything else which could have been released?
