  1. Thanx for this one. I don't suppose you have the Texas Fever mini album at all?
    Great little blog/ but an aside to your Teardrops post, there was an American version that came out with the original photo of the band on the cover but had an extra song on it, from memory it was 'Suffocate' but it was a different version than was eventually released in the UK and on top of that a number of trax were different mixes as well. I ended up buying the bloody album 3 times being a bit of a fan. have added you to my blog list.

  2. Thanks Mona- Texas Fever? I think I can manage that))
