Single Notes By dltourhistory

The fourth single from 'Slang' was released in November 1996. 'Breathe A Sigh' the second ballad from the album narrowly missed out on a UK Top 40 chart entry. This was mostly due to no promo video being made. The addition of six live tracks helped sell many CDs among collectors and long term fans.

The live material was recorded on the US and Canadian leg of the tour. The only officially released live material from the 1996 tour. The UK/US Promo CDs included a 3:50 radio edit version of the song. This was the last UK CD single to feature "LEPCD" as part of the catalogue number. Also the last UK single to be released on Cassette.

Inner Sleeve Notes UK CD1/2

"Tracks 2, 3 & 4 were recorded live direct to DAT during our 1996 tour to support "Slang". No remixing was done to the original tracks, but we liked the sound & vibe, and thought you'd like a little taste of what's to come on our upcoming European tour. See ya' on the road!."
