Instant Hit- The Blue Nile- I Love This Life

 "I Love This Life" was the debut single for Glasgow based Blue Nile who released it in 1981 on their own label 'Peppermint Records'. The song featured more minimal style, different to the music Blue Nile would record in the later years. The single didn't appear on any of the Blue Nile albums which were released throughout their career.

No way!. I'd forgotten al about his one. I bought this for 20p in the sale rack of an independent local record shop (long since gone). A purchase based purely on liking the cover artwork ! A truly great track by a great band. Don't suppose you could post the b-side -Second Acts ? Thanks for posting, Gareth (in the UK)

Hi, me again ! I've just been through all your posts, this has to be the best mix of New Wave I've seen in a blog ! I have downloaded Leisure Process (WOW!). I wonder if you have heard of another early 80s band - HAINES GANG - they recorded 'So Hot' in 1983 (and nothing else). Best regards, Gareth (in the UK)

Fantastic, thanks very much :O) Thanks for the info regarding the CD release - I had no idea it had been put out on CD - I had forgotten all about this track until I saw your post. Great work, thanks again. Gareth

My old drama teacher in Cumbernauld was friends with the band and lent this single to me and a few others in the class, it is absolutely brilliant :)

Hello,

I'm lucky enough to have an autographed copy of this single - I took it along to a signing the band were doing in Glasgow when they released Hats.

I love the single, but I never really play vinyl any more - would anyone be interested in buying it? I have this autographed along with my copy of their first two albums and a couple of 12 inches.

Thanks much for this. I, too, would love to hear the b-side "The Second Act", but can't find a link for it on your blog. Did I miss it somewhere?
