Introduction Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, for your love is better than wine.
Up until the release of Miss You Nights, most of Cliff's singles were original releases, not being taken from album cuts.
With the trend in single releases changing in the s, most of Cliff's singles from Miss You Nights on were lifted from the albums cuts.
Of course, there are occasional exceptions to this. When the single was lifted from an album, EP or some other project, the singles were quite often alternate versions or edits.
And some of these variations are quite rare, having been ignored by the record companies over the years. And sometimes these variations did get release, but only by accident when the album compiler grabbed the wrong version of the song off the shelf for a given project.
More often than not, the B-sides were unique releases and not album cuts. Again, there are exceptions. Even when the trend changed to culling singles from albums, the B-sides often remained unique to the single; the purpose of this being in part to encourage sales of the single in order to give it a better chart placing.
And, of course, the whole concept of the "B-side" evolved from the days of the 7" single when a single had a primary side the A-side and the other side the B-side.
With the evolution of the single to the one-sided CD and the no-sided download single, the concept of a B-side doesn't really exist anymore, but the term persists to now roughly mean "songs on a single other than the primary title.
For unknown reasons, the following two singles inSilvery Rain and Flying Machine were mono again. And with the release of October 's Sing A Song Of Freedom, all of Cliff's singles afterwards were in stereo except for those rare exceptions when an older song that may never have existed in stereo was put on the B-side, such as 's The Young Ones on the B-side of 's Never Let Go.
With the lack of any big successes for the Real As I Wanna Be singles, Cliff realized that EMI was no longer heavily interested in promoting him or his projects and he severed his ties with them. Perhaps it is ironic that Cliff's very next project, the The Millenium Prayer single on Papillon Records, was a huge success, spending three consecutive weeks at the 1 spot.
The Evolution of Formats: It can be interesting to observe the various formats of singles over the years. Certainly the dominate format for most of Cliff's career is the 7" vinyl single with the very first single in August in this format straight through to the October release of Misunderstood Man.
That's 37 straight years of 7" vinyl releases. In the myriad of formats, there were some that came to be quite common during their era.
Today, the CD single as a format is waning and the download only single is taking over as the most prominent form of single release, with some singles having no physical single at all. In the early s, various collectible releases began hitting the market as a way to boost sales of a single. The first of these is a 7" picture disc of Little Town in November This soon blossomed into a wide variety of collectible releases, including various shaped picture discs, poster covers, gatefold covers, etc.
This was common for many artists during the era with goal being to generate interest in the single as well as generate multiple sales to fans and boost the chart position of the song.
This practice of multiple releases peaked in with the release of the From A Distance single in six different formats.
The practice still continues today with Cliff's latest single, Singing The Blues, having three different formats.a wrongful act other than a breach of contract for which relief may be obtained in the form of damages or an injunction.
