I must be the only one who can’t stand their country material. It almost always came off sounding contrived to my ears, especially when they went all out with the more commercial tracks like Sweet, Sweet Smile. Give me the more subtle, nuanced lilt of Two Sides or When It’s Gone any day.
These are the EP's I have:
- Close To You (Australia; X 11749) with Close to you, All I can do / Ticket to ride, Don't be afraid
- Hurting Each Other (Mexico; EPAM-012) with Hurting each other, One love / (A place to) Hideaway, Saturday
- 4 Sucessos (Brazil; S7 AMD 10029) with Please Mr. Postman, Sing / Bless the beasts and children, Top of the world
I have cover images but I couldn't figure out how to post them.
Japan has given some beautiful releases, unlike any other countries... EPs being no exception! The most luxurious looking ones are the Super Compact 800 "Best Hits" Series (Only 5 EPs were released as far as I'm aware) and they have a lovely gold lettering and design... But I also like the Love Sounds "Oh Series" gatefold ones of Superstar, Sing and Top of the World.
