And So Is Love - UK CD Single

One of two UK CD single releases for And So Is Love. This one I'm showing you came in a standard sized jewel case with three different prints from 'The Line, The Cross and the Curve'. The other version of the single came in one of those very slim jewel cases and didn't feature any prints. I never bothered buying the other version at the time because both versions featured the exact same artwork and song tracks.

The remixes aren't bad... if you're into that sort of thing. I'm personally not a fan of most remixes for any artist. If a song can be remixed into something almost as beautiful as the song itself, such as the Organon Mix of Cloudbusting, then I'm totally cool with it. But if a song is remixed using repetitive beats and loop samples, or runs on for ten minutes or more, then it's an annoying pile of rubbish in my book. Sorry, but that's how I feel about it.

One small thing about the CD sleeve that irritates me to no extent is that it stains extremely easily with your fingerprints, and they are nearly impossible to wipe off without ruining it further. It's just as bad as the paper used by the Kate Bush Club for their magazine issue of The Red Shoes.

I believe that this is the only UK CD single put out during The Red Shoes era that didn't get a picture disc release.
