Another good song from the North of a Miracle Album. The slide show was done using Photo Artmaster classic.

North of a Miracle is the debut solo album by English singer-songwriter Nick Heyward. It was released on 28 October 1983 through Arista Records and spent 10 weeks on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at number 10. The album produced four UK singles, "Whistle Down the Wind", "Take That Situation", "Blue Hat for a Blue Day" and "On a Sunday". In the United States, the album peaked in the Billboard 200 at number 178 in 4 weeks on the chart.

GOOD: North of a Miracle is one of those LPs that stand the test of time. Over the years, I've owned seven different copies; it has been several years since I was last without a copy of one sort or another in my collection. Nick's first album from back in 1983 gets a lovingly restored reissue. Published on September 15, 2005.

One track already makes Nick Heyward's first solo LP after leaving Haircut 100 a must-hear. The breezy "Whistle Down the Wind" is among Heyward's most moving songs, a story of unrequited love with a "hello, hello, hope you're feeling fine" chorus that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Heyward sings the opening lines in a whispery tone, caressing the ears with the sweetness of his voice; when the tempo builds up, the track manages to simultaneously elevate and sadden the listener. Like the Colourfield's Virgins & Philistines, North of a Miracle doesn't seem like a '80s record; its apparent influences - the Beatles, the Walker Brothers, jazz, R&B - are as timeless as the album. Anybody expecting a boyish romp like Haircut 100's "Love Plus One" might be a tad startled. 1 When It Started to Begin Nick Heyward 3:48.

Sound - 8 Ah, Nick Heyward. The next track that follows sounds, oddly like 'Love Plus One'. Or maybe that's just the marimba. Lyrics - 7 Heyward was always one for heartfelt lyrics. Please, my girl, release the story of love' and 'I was so sensitive' show the romantic, sissy side of the singer-songwriter, while the Cyndi Lauper-esque guitar lines makes up for the lyrics that recall a middle school romance.

Nick Heyward’s debut album, ‘North of A Miracle’ was originally released through Arista Records in October 1983. In January 1983, he departed Haircut 100 and headed straight into the studio with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to produce a timeless classic pop album. It was highly acclaimed by both fans and critics upon its original release and is still held in high esteem today, with Uncut magazine calling it an All time classic that fell off the radar.
