17. THE TELL TALE HEARTS - 'Too Many Lovers'/'Promise' (Kavern 7 Records K7-003) 1987
This 45 was the last official release by the original line-up of The Tell Tale Hearts. Only Eric Bacher was missing, he was replaced on lead guitar by ex Crawdaddy Peter Meisner. The latter only ever recorded these two songs with the band which were taped at Swinging Studios, Dulzura in December 1986.
'Too Many Lovers' is a wild rendition of a '66 R'n'B stomper by English band The Scorpions although they were based in Holland. The flip is a Ray Brandes original titled 'Promise' that harks back to the sonic prowess of 'The Now Sound of The Tell Tale Hearts' EP released in 1985.
