Promotional copies of this Maxi (gold foiled stamped on front cover) shipped with a letter dated May 4 1983, xeroxed on Warner Bros. letterhead which reads:
Unless you've been living in Siberia for the last two decades you undoubtedly know who NEIL YOUNG is. At the risk of being redundant we'll refresh your memory of his illustrious history: Once upon a time, before he was an international star and one quarter of one of the most celebrated groups in rock history (does Crosby, Stills and Nash ring a bell?), NEIL was in this little group called Buffalo Springfield, that had this great tune, "Mr. Soul," written by NEIL in 1967. Well, it's now 1983 and YOUNG has reshaped and re-released this classic on his very first Maxi Single. Coupled with a modern dance beat and synthesized vocals, the new "Mr. Soul" reflects the computer age we live in. In addition, YOUNG offers up another extended remixed version of the equally electronic flavored "Sample And Hold," taken from his current LP "Trans." This subtle mid-tempo electro-funk-folk song is hard to classify although it should have no trouble fitting in the modern dance/rock scene as, urban contemporary and modern AOR formats. 0-20105
Also shipping this week Friday, is the AL JARREAU 12" PRO "Boogie Down." It should be in your hands very soon!
