Morrissey and Siouxsie - Interlude (7" single, vinyl rip). 1994.

   This is a majestic '60's lovesong covered by two of the best voices of our time. It was released as a vinyl single in 1994.
   "Interlude was recorded during the recording sessions for Morrissey's "Vauxhall and I" album, and was produced by Morrissey guitarist and musical director Boz Boorer.   The original version of the song was recorded in 1968 by the female singer Timi Yuro as the title track for the film of the same name and it's written by George De La Rue and Hal Shaper.
    Morrissey first contacted Siouxsie in the early 90s with a view to recording a duet with her. In 1993 he sent her a tape with some potential songs he had selected. All were numbers initially sung by female singers like Nancy Sinatra and Dionne Warwick. Siouxsie picked this ballad and Morrissey agreed. 
The sessions went well and Boz Boorer later described his collaboration with Siouxsie as "complete joy".
 "Interlude" was later included on a compilation called "Suedeheaded. The best of Morrissey".  A previously unreleased version of the song, featuring only Morrissey's vocals, is on his 2011 "Very best of" compilation". (from Wikipedia).
  "Two heroes enterwine their voices - Siouxsie's torchily rich, Morrissey's expansively wobbly - for a song about romance that actually doesn't sound doomed." (Spin Magazine).


The artwork in the front sleeve is a vintage photo ("Girl jiving" - 1957) by Roger Mayne and the photo above is the same girl of course - the title is "Girl, Southam Street"(Morrissey has used a lot of his work for concert backdrops, record sleeves and press-adverts).
The record includes two versions of the song. It's ripped from the original vinyl record to wav.
