I had asked if anyone could share this track a while back and no one seemed to have it. I just found it in FLAC today and decided I'd share here. From the 1990 "Dick Tracy" CD inspired by the movie. Quite a departure for them, but it IS written by Vince and Andy (performed with acoustic instruments) and is actually pretty charming.

Strange, I have it for years, from that same CD! Probably just overlooked your request... Anyway, thank for sharing, Fred!

On a side note, I once sent you Visage's "Beat Boy" mixes to re-create the UK 7" of it. May I ask did you get around to it or plan to? :) That's the only from from the 1980s that I still miss...

Oh heck, Passing_Stranger, I completely forgot about it! I got a "newer" computer that I've been using but I believe I still have the files you sent me on the other computer. I will check into that today and see if I can do that for you!
