Life Rotates In 45 Revolutions Per Minute (Colin Towns: Full Circle and Olivia)


This stunning 45 contains two of the most sublime moments in seventies experimental pop and should be seeked out by any fans of not only FULL CIRCLE, but British music in general.
The main selling point to this very rare 45 is that side A contains an otherwise unreleased edit of the unforgettable main theme from the film. While this edit is only a shadow of the original, it is still exceptionally powerful and is a worthwhile addition to Town's catalogue.
The b-side is the haunting OLIVIA, which is the same version as the album's take. This occasionally pops up on Ebay but, like the full album, is becoming harder and harder to find. A special edition release of the soundtrack would do well to feature this fine edit as one of the bonus tracks.

I would LOVE to own a copy of that 45... the music is one of the main reasons that the film is so wonderful. I should start checking on ebay regularly I suppose!

You've got me really wanting to hear the soundtrack Jeremy! Hopefully it will become easily available in the future. Lately it seems like there are more and more soundtracks being released for rare films that don't even have vhs releases, much less DVD releases.

It really is extraordinary and actually one of my favorite albums...I really hope it gets a re-release soon...
