** After the release of their only album, "Beginning Here and Travelling Outward” (Bam Caruso, 1987), The Palace of Light decided to change their name and press a promo single, drawing on the material recorded since the Palace Of Light album. They settled on Mabel Joy as the band name and chose Catherine and Books for the single, and decided to call their label Hummingbird. It was 1991. Some 7 inches were pressed up. But the single was never properly released. Some copies were sent out for review, and to radio stations, but there was no distribution and it was never sold in shops. So, this single release by Spring Records is something of an anomaly, as it is a reissue of something that wasn’t really issued in the first place. The single got a couple of reviews, and maybe even some radio play, but it didn’t really achieve anything. Mabel Joy pressed on, and in 1994 returned to Bam Caruso for an album, Wish I Was, before splitting up.

** Después de la edición de su único ábum, "Beginning Here and Travelling Outward" (Bam Caruso, 1987), The Palace of Light reaparecieron en 1991 con un single autoeditado que contenía dos perlas del calibre de “Catherine” y “Books”, tal vez lo mejor que llegarían a grabar. Curiosamente el single nunca se llegó a distribuir y sólo unas pocas copias llegaron hasta alguna emisora de radio. Aunque las canciones habían sido grabadas por The Palace of Light antes de su disolución, el single se editó bajo el nombre de Mabel Joy que el grupo adoptaría para grabar el disco “Wish I Was” publicado en 1993 por Bam Caruso. Spring Records tiene el orgullo de rescatar ahora esta joya del olvido y darle una nueva oportunidad, sólo por el placer de re-descubrir estas maravillosas canciones.
