Various, 1977 (Not UK)

IGTB: Heartbreaker
  • UK?
  • US promo release
  • US release
  • Dutch release
  • Australia promo release

  • Not the same as Dave Lambert's "Heartbreaker", but a song of the same name penned for his space opera concept album by Wil Malone, and recorded by a galaxy of stars under the name of the Intergalactic Touring Band. Dave Cousins appears on this track only, taking the lead vocal, and the song is pretty good.

    UK Release?

    The album came out on the Charisma label in the UK, and different singles seem to have been picked:
    "Love Station"/"Space Commando" (CB 306, 1977)
    "Starship Jingle"/"Reaching Out" (CB 307, 1977)

    Never seen a UK version of "Heartbreaker" - anyone have one?
