Other People’s Hearts (B.Sides 1988-1989)

Other People’s Hearts (B.Sides 1988-1989) front cover

The latest in an excellent run of Kirsty compilations was released (750 copies only) on 29th August 2020.  All the B-sides from the ‘Kite’ releases are here and it’s a great 180g pressing on clear vinyl.  This was a Record Store Day exclusive, and sold out quickly.

Yes, you’re got all these songs already but it’s well packaged, well sequenced and well transferred and the clear vinyl is gorgeous!

This is the first appearance on vinyl for ‘Please Help Me I’m Falling’, ‘La Fôret de Mimosas’ and ‘Am I Right?’.

Is it worth the money?  Definitely!

The vinyl sounds terrific and happy to say that our lab testing agrees, scoring a dynamic range value of 10 overall with every track scoring high up the individual lists.  Basically, the higher it places the more faithful it is to the original sound.

It has since been reissued on 140g black vinyl, just need to find some time to give that its own page but fundamentally it is the same release in a different colour.  It was released on 19th February 2021 — Cat no.  DEMREC864 and barcode 5014797904873.
