Very cool! So Blues Away was to be the 4th single from I Say?? I wonder if we could ever get that confirmed from Vince, Andy or Mute.

I'm trying to picture an alternate offshoot universe where Blues Away was released as a single with that artwork... and I suppose it works. I think All Through The Years or So The Story Goes would work well with the wintry artwork too, though I just can't see how any of those 3 would have been a strong single - and I suppose Mute didn't either at the time.

I still wonder why the Always video was set in winter, when the artwork was so unabashedly spring-y (and the song itself always feels "warm" to me). I don't mean to knock the video, because it is a good one, but it seems like they should have kept the spring theme.

Me, I'm good with Mike's recollection. I have more doubt that V&A would remember than the guy commissioned to do the artwork for it. ;)

Still, did it get to a stage that a 7" version was done, or even a remix? That's tantalizing, but with FMTM and other releases, one wonders if we'd have heard such tracks by now.

All the FaceBook posts about this album being 25 years old,here’s a tribute to all the artwork which was just perfection all round and that logo has still yet to be beaten.

Its possible but the Blue Savannah remix Vince was working on a while back makes you wonder.

Yeah I responded to the Tweet asking if it's going to be a double 'A' side with his remix of Blue Savannah we heard about many moons ago.

I think some people are getting excited that it's related to a forthcoming deluxe edition of I Say, I Say, I Say, but we thought that about his Blue Savannah remix and Wild! deluxe, but it never saw the light of day with that

Didn't he also once announce that he was remixing Turns The Love To Anger? There's been no further news on that either so far.

I wonder if a remix album is on the cards.

Another possibility: maybe sometimes Vince likes to just remix an old track for his own fun and entertainment! He just tells us about it. Like, you know, when he tells us about a pie he's making or something. We never get to actually eat any of it.

Of course, he did hint that the Blue Savannah remix was for something BMG had planned, so...
