"Fire and Rain", the original track, also appeared later on the MFP (Music For Pleasure) budget label in the UK on the same compilation re-titled THIS GUY'S IN LOVE WITH YOU.
I remember seeing this particular Lp in a Drug store which sold imports and even occasional bootlegs along with regular Lps and unfortunately I was in grade school and had a limited allowance and it would have been a worthy purchase for fire and rain fortunately I was able to get a pristine copy of the single in 84 for a quarter and thankfully I preserved it to tape and now it's on one of my CDR MIX DISCS I'm so glad I taped all the 45s I later lost because at least I still have the music in some form."Fire and Rain", the original track, also appeared later on the MFP (Music For Pleasure) budget label in the UK on the same compilation re-titled THIS GUY'S IN LOVE WITH YOU.
We've previously discussed that these UK albums were the only stereo source for "Fire and Rain", even though the stereo is not all that wide to begin with. It's all rather "mono-ish".
Sounds like a HAP. Version of Lost treasures. That would be nice but I would say "Don't Hold Your Breath"! Just saying.I wonder if Herb and Randy would ever consider releasing an EP (on HAP) of all of these non-album tracks, plus perhaps the two alternate tracks from NOCHE DE AMOR.... also a few remixes... (hint, hint... )
I managed to track down a CD copy of "The Lady In my Life", only this one's on a maxi-single from W. Germany of "I Need You". It has four tracks:I do have "Lady In My Life" on one of those 3" CD singles as the so-called 'B' side to "I Need You".
It's over a year later, but since catching Harry in a mistake is such a rare pleasure, I feel compelled to point out that "Whistle Song" DID make it onto CD.... it was on Lost Treasures.It remains a non-album track along with:
The You In Me
The Lady In My Life
