Can we all try and vote on this please - As with all votes your choice is anonymous to me (unless you reply telling us!).

THANKS!

I'll be buying all 3 as he's trying to bolster his pension fund. :p

I don't think thats the reason he's releasing a single.

At the start of this year Hugh had spent 195 weeks on the UK charts. JJ Dave and Jet had 194 weeks.
With the releases of BTC and LBV JJ, Dave and Jet are now on 197 weeks.
This surely is not lost on Hugh. This, I think, is why he's bringing out a single for the first time in 9 years.
I will buy all 3 formats and if the vinyl is cheap [99p] I will get a few singles.

Or it could be that Track Records are willing to release a single to promote the album! And fair play to them (no, I don't work for Track). The lack of singles in recent years has not been down to Hugh not wanting to release one. OBD & Leave Me Alone were all ones that got away...

Don't 'follow' Hugh so....now if John Ellis released a single that would be a different matter!

I think some sort of wine goblet would be more useful for you Griff.

Nope, not me. I LOVE Hugh still, but BEF does nothing for me, glad I didn't have to pay for it.
Guilty and Hi-Fi are brilliant, with loads of singles on them I would have brought, but not 1 song on BEF I am afraid........
Now, Leave Me Alone..........

i've voted - no, i won't be. there is just one main reason - it's unavaible in my country, any 2nd? i don't really like UHS enough, its a good album track but ihmo also an excample of wrong selection. cadiz should be first single, the second one of : 24/7, do right bayou, henry moore

I've voted 'no' but I'm getting BEF for Xmas so if it's tickles my nipples and lights my tights I'll prolly buy the single for historic value.
If Dave was to use a Hammond L100 for just one more gig I'd die content.
