THE RECORDS – “Hearts In Her Eyes” / “So Sorry” (Virgin VS 330) May 1980
The Records “Hearts In Her Eyes” – This band passed me by when I was a kid and too preoccupied with The Jam. They released a couple of albums and a handful of singles that received critical acclaim but didn’t chart.
“Hearts In Her Eyes” was written with The Searchers in mind. The latter had recently reformed and were looking for material to record and this number is just so perfect for the old-time jangle beat band.
The Searchers version was released during October 1979 but The Records took a full six months to release their recording, although it was on their album “Crashes”. The other side “So Sorry” is none LP and is a good enough reason to be on the look out for this single.
The Records material was produced and engineered by the in-demand Mick Glossop who worked with several other Virgin label bands such as The Ruts, The Skids and Public Image Ltd.
