3″ heaven – The ‘Flowers In The Dirt’ quartet

4 Nov

I like the logic that a single should be physically smaller than an album. That goes for vinyl and of course that should be the case for cd’s as well, the record companies thought. So during a few years by the late 80ies and early 90ies this cute mini standard was in fashion. (In retrospect most formats seem to have been in fashion during that period by the way.) At least four of Macca’s singles from the 1989 ‘Flowers in The Dirt’ album was released in the baby single format – a format that passed under serveral different names;
• ‘My Brave Face’, “3” CD-single” (CDP 560-2033583)
• ‘This One’, “Maxi CD” (CDP 560-2034463)
• ‘Figure Of Eigth’, “3” Maxi-CD” (CDP 552-2036533)
• ‘Party Party’, “3” CD single” (CD3R 6238)
