I’m a sucker for picture discs and b-sides, so it’s no wonder that I picked this up 208 years ago when it came out. For those of you unfamiliar with “Head Over Heels,” which seems impossible since that song is seriously fucked out, it includes the line “this is my four-leaf clover,” so there you have it. What’s really cool about this disc, though, is the b-side:
I could have picked up “When In Love With A Blind Man” on the flip-side of the regular “Head Over Heels” single, too, but what would be the point of that? No, no. Always go for the rarity.
So how did my keen business mind treat me in the case? Some online retailers try to get around $50.00 for this picture disc, but the prevailing rate seems to be more along the lines of $25.00. Not great, but not too shabby. It’s not hard to find a copy if you want one of your own. Happy hunting.
