UK pressing of second Kansas Hook single, a tough two-sider with hammond and crunching guitar. Both songs on this single were written by the bass player Julian Burrowes and produced by Tony Atkins. Kansas Hook actually performed on the Casuals' single "Tara Tiger" and on its b side "Nature's Child", a song that appeared also as the b side of "American Jam", a single released by Kansas Hook under the pseudonym American Jam Band.

THE NEW HORIZONS (I Nuovi Orizzonti) - Going Back To The City / Ti Amo Ancora (T-N-H 1975)
I got this obscure Italian single trading some records with my friend Pierpaolo of Rave Up records. I have no idea who The New Horizons were, I can only see the names of the composer, E. Sica and the producer, F. Randone, on the record label.
As the title of the track suggests, the b side is a terrible love ballad but Coming Back To The City is worthy of your attention...
