A Couple of Heavenly Singles

Between 'Le Jardin de Heavenly' (1992) and 'The Decline and Fall of Heavenly' (1994), Amelia Fletcher wrote two catchy non-album singles, largely forgotten, that are, in my mind, as good as anything in the Heavenly canon. The songs were originally released as Sarah 081 and 082, respectively. As usual, K Records came to the rescue on this side of the pond, eventually even combining the two records as a 5-song EP in 1995. I think you're really going to enjoy the vocal interplay between Fletcher and Cathy Rogers on the bouncy "Atta Girl." What's your favorite Fletcher vehicle, Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research or Tender Trap? Is it even possible to choose just one?

Surely Talulah Gosh, simply because of the debut 12": still sounds astonishing to me!

And thanks for the two tunes, looking forward to download them when back from work today!
