Verve All in the Mind EP

When Verve put out the All in the Mind single (I should really call it an EP because of the importance of the songs here), it was as if the whole flaccid music scene of the early 1990s needed to be blown up. And Verve blew through it without a care in the world.

A better song than U2 could have done, All in the Mind hits with the kind of mastery no one was attempting at the time. One Way to Go and Man Called Sun are two of the greatest B-sides ever. You could rotate them around and any one of these tracks could have led off the EP.

I love the design, and the feel of this sleeve. I think the text disappears at the bottom, but the rest of the sleeve is so well done.
