4 Sucessos - Brazil 7" Single (4 Track EP)
This is the first in a series of two Brazilian produced Various Artists EPs to feature a song by Kate. A second Various Artists EP was later issued, as were two additional EPs which were marketed exclusively as Kate releases. All 4 EPs can be found on this site.
As with the case with the other releases, this one also comes in a thicker card sleeve. The record labels are also pretty identical to the UK issued ones from that time.
Unfortunately, the labels on this particular copy are in pretty rough shape; they suffer from discolouration, fading and even bleed issues from the paper glue. I had a lot of difficulty taking half decent scans, particularly with the B side. Sometimes older paper labels can prove to be problematic in very specific ways. It doesn't often happen, but I have seen a few examples of this throughout my life. A culmination of different factors can be involved in this happening: defective paper, glue not properly cured, environmental conditions or simply age.
