EVERLASTING LOVE: THE REMIX
The famous producer Mike Hurst and Lynton Guest have remixed "Everlasting Love". It will be released in England on 30 January 2004. Says Lynton: "We have tried to keep it recognisably the original yet also recognisably new. I have put a new synth bass on it and we have made a number of subtle changes." Signed pre-release promo copies of "Everlasting Love: The Remix" are now available for a limited time.
