ORIGINALLY:

On the 7", the 'A' side was taken from The Love That Whirls album,
and on the 12" it appeared in an extended version, clocking in at 6'30".


The 'B' sides were both non-album tracks from The Love That Whirls sessions.

NOTES:

Flaming Desire was the second single released to support The Love That Whirls album.  The single was issued
in 2 formats commercially (7" and 12"), and as a 7" promo featuring an exclusive radio edit.  The 7" sleeves for the commercial and promo copies are identical.  The 12" version included an exclusive extended remix of "Flaming Desire" and an additional non-album cut, "The Burning Question".


The single was promoted by a short promo video that Nelson directed, made on a shoe string budget and featured his then wife Jan.  Stills from this video would later feature on the sleeve of the Chimera mini-album.



PAST RELEASES:


The B-sides were both included on The Two Fold Aspect of Everything comp (out of print).

 

 

CURRENT AVAILABILITY:

B/B1 was added to the remastered 2005 CD of The Love That Whirls, and The Practice of Everyday Life box (2011). The album is still in print.  The box set is out of print in physical form, but available as a digital download from major online retailers.
