Is This Desire? Lyrics. Joseph walked on and on the sunset Went down and down coldness Cooled their desire and Dawn said "Let's build a fire" The sun dressed the trees in green And Joe said "Dawn I feel like a king" And Dawn's neck and her feet were bare Sweetness in her golden hair Said "I'm not scared" Turned to her. and smiled Secrets in his eyes Sweetness of desire

Britain's five-foot queenie of the gothic-blues, PJ Harvey, returns on September 28 with a new album she's calling Is This Desire? The heavily embargoed album - Polly's first solo project in three years - is a more varied work than its predecessors, with hip hop, jazz and lush orchestration all cropping up among the twelve tracks. Most of the material was written in 1996 during what Harvey identifies as "an incredibly low patch," which she finally left behind only five months ago. A reluctant interviewee, she's recently spoken to the ultra-hip UK style magazine. Harvey has long since abandoned London and returned to the Dorset countryside where she was raised. She claims to have few friends that post-date her success and has been single for some time. A little romance wouldn't go amiss," she admits.

Count Basie(CD Album)Classic Tracks-vg+. Harvey as usual and sounds better. The of her previous plates known ingredients are all present: its flexible, occasionally distorted voice and by her nomination and ' heavy ' texts often ominous songs.

Who should I write to make a reissue of this album ? I do not want to give my money to clowns.
felt boot
dammit when's Polly going to reissue her stuff :( .
Im for once a lucky guy :) Does not stick on my Thorens 150 with 1,5 gr and the same anti skate. Pickup Audio Technica AT95E
Same! I have the same cartridge as you too. Just got this, by far my most expensive record I've bought and I was SO worried about this
I was looking for a very large rez version of this cover and kept finding versions where heavy sharpening was applied to her face, making it look like she has lizard skin. Remembering from oh so long ago that the images were a bit blurry, I thought I would pop over here to see, thinking perhaps Paolo Roversi shot the cover—his exquisite work is known for that out-of-focus effect—but it turns out "Images (All) - PJ Harvey"Pleasantly surprised!! PJ is ALL TALENT!
Some copies of this LP and a few other rare ones on the PJ Harvey webstore today
how much were they selling them for? so mad I missed this! The only vinyl of hers I don't have.....
Nice! I grabbed this one, went back for the others but they were snatched up, still pretty happy though!
Stil, I was fast enough to snatch a copy of this one + Uh Huh Her & Stories !Right now I am a very happy man :)
Never mind, gone very quickly, need more words for review
I find the pressing flaw with this album is actually part of its charm. I know that sounds like a massive concession because I would never want an album with a pressing flaw but it's such a sonically shifting album from track to track there is something exciting about resetting the skate on the turntable and wondering if the needle will hit the groove in a certain way which will allow it to play through. Sometimes it does and sometimes it does not. I KNOW it sounds corny but I feel I have a special relationship with this album in particular, because of the flaw. It is demanding, like the album itself. It commands your attention and you have to have a relationship with it in order to "get" through it. You can't just play it passively and I love it for that, however unintentional. Stupid maybe, but the flaw doesn't stop me enjoying it. I would not buy a repress for anything because of this.
Ha Ha! Yes it does, but I am sure it will be reissued at some point and I certainly wouldn't pay the prices being offered for an original if I didn't own it already.
Very well put! The unavailability of any alternate pressing also helps with my acceptance of this flaw :)
Bought it the week of release, returned to shop for replacement twice and all three copies had the same issue. Bought another copy recently and was told it played fine however it didn't and had a refund. So yes, it was a pressing fault. Therefore Island records need to re-press this please!! If your copy plays ok , keep it and treasure it, it's worth a fortune!!
Yeah, I agree, same problem: needle sticks in the middle of "no girl so sweet" and sometimes in the middle of "the river".
Bought my copy on the week of release, and it played fine throughout for years before it began to stick in the middle of "no girl so sweet". Probably a combination of faulty pressing and violent groove modulation at that point which causes the needle to "jump". I've found that cheaper spherical stylii tracking a bit heavier can help overcome this issue, in addition to easing off the anti-skating on the tonearm.
ah, what? reissue please...
haven't played this album in a long time, and lo and behold, there's the stylus sticking near the middle of "no girl so sweet". oh well.
how is there no official(or unofficial)repress of this yet: such a great album...it definitely needs one so more people can (affordably)own it on vinyl.
I've spoken to a few people on different forums. All have had the same problem. some are worse than others. I've noticed that if you lighten the tracking weight of your stylus, it will play. bit annoying but chance are, if you want an original pressing of this album (and it's pretty scarce) you'll have to settle for this flaw.
Mine plays through fine...I must be blessed. Arguably her best album too.
I have the same problem. When I (unintentionally) played the record on a 1210 with a lowered tone arm, it didn't skip, but as soon as I put the arm into a proper position, it skipped again. It's a shame, because it is a great track.
This is so good to know, I always thought my copy was defective. I was going to take it back for a replacement but then I moved away from home and just thought I'll have to deal with it. Even though the record and sleeve looked mint years later I thought it was worth replacing the vinyl so I could have a perfect copy. At least now I won't have to do that :-) Thanks!
HiI've bought two copies of this on vinyl and both have had flaws whereby the stylus sticks half way through 'no girl so sweet' the vinyl looked mint on both copies but there clearly seems to be some sort of pressing fault. Does anyone else have this same problem or come across it?
I Have found stylus profile determines the trackability of this 'fault'. A very small microline stylus would not track (sits lower in groove?). An elliptical type from the same manufacturer sailed through 2 out of 3 attempts. I think maybe an obstruction in bottom of groove which may explain some tracking at a lighter playing weight. However the elliptical cartridge has a higher optimum tracking force than the microline I use.
Try to lighten the weight of your stylus. see if it will play through. mine did.
Mine does this as well. My vinyl is near perfect looking and it skips mid way through No Girl too.
Swift Summer
do you know where I can purchase this on vinyl?
Yes! I have had the same problem on 2 out of 3 copies I have come across. One copy was especially bad, but the other one stopped doing it after I changed my stylus. But it is always in the exact same place. "She said--She said--She said--she said--" that's what it sounds like. :PSo I definitely think it is some kind of pressing issue.
