18. THE TELL TALE HEARTS - "Take A Look Inside" / "I'm Ready" (Nevermore Records) 1990
This was the last Tell Tale Hearts single to be released and it's a fitting way to go out with two sides of purist endeavour. By now the line-up hardly resembled the original band with only Mike Stax and Bill Calhoun remaining. No one appears to have been able to fill lead guitar duties and the licks were provided by associate Carl Rusk.
My copy of the record is a 'test pressing' and has the date 3rd March 1990 written on the label. It took me a fair few years to track down a copy so I don't think that many were pressed.
Paul Carsola (drums)
Mike Stax (bass)
Bill Calhoun (lead vocals/harp)
