Maid in Heaven

Be-Bop Deluxe

single - 20 June 1975

Maid in Heaven cover

TRACKS:

A)  Maid In Heaven
B)  Lights

ORIGINALLY:

 

"Maid in Heaven" was lifted directly off the Futurama album, whereas "Lights" was the same version of the non-album cut that had appeared as the 'B' side of the previous single.

NOTES:

Maid in Heaven was the fourth Be Bop Deluxe single issued during the band's existence.  The single was issued in a generic record company sleeve.  UK Promo copies exist with the words "Demo Record Not For Sale" and a large 'A' printed on the label.  US Mono/Stereo promo copies were pressed to encourage airplay on both AM and FM radio.


PAST RELEASES:

 

Both tracks would be included on The Best of and the Rest of Be Bop Deluxe double album (1978), and the Singles As and Bs compilation (1981).  "Lights" would appear on CD as a bonus track added to Drastic Plastic (1991).

CURRENT AVAILABILITY:
 

The single is long deleted, but both tracks can be found on the Futurist Manifesto 1974-1978 box set (2012) - both in physical form and as a digital download.
