…Just following the previous steps, this is the original 12 inch that came out in 1983 but this time covered by Ivo’s project , This Mortal Coïl. In fact, a meeting between several artists on the 4AD label. If i’m right, it seems that only two tracks are avalaible again through cd reissues, and i think that « Sixteen (Reprise) » is just avalaible here, on that vinyl. Maybe i’m wrong, so comments are here … After two decades, anecdotik i think !

This is fantastic. Thanks so much for putting this up. The sixteen Days-Gathering Dust side has never been out on CD as far as I know. I've had the vinyl for many years and what a treat to be able to put on CD. Could I make a request? The 7" version of It'll End In Tears? I would love to get that. Thanks again.

Hi Anonymous,

Sorry, i don't own this "masterpiece". But like you i'm pretty curious about the 7" version of "It'll End In Tears"...
