Sheila E. (1986) Love On A Blue Train JAP 7″

Very Brief:
In February of 1987, Sheila E.’s third album was released and was simply titled ‘Sheila E.’. In late 1986, the first single from that album became available but, only in Japan. “Love On A Blue Train” was never released in the US or elsewhere, making this little record a bit hard-to-find. But, find it I did! Just like “The Future” 7″ that I posted last week, this record is the only place collectors have been able to obtain the Single Edit version of “Love On A Blue Train” as it was not included on the ‘The Glamorous Club Dance EP‘ 12″ or CD that was released in conjunction with this 7″ single. Instead, the EP contained the 7:37 Full Version. Although the song is credited on the label as Produced, Written and Arranged by Sheila E., it is known that Prince co-wrote the song as well as played all instruments, except where noted.
