I didn't realize until well after Laid had come and gone that James had put out records on Factory, and some pretty good ones at that. Of course, now I am a general fan of James (Wah Wah is particularly good), but at the time I was turned on to their early records by a cover of "Folklore" by Unrest. I think I picked these records up at a record swap or in London (or at a record swap in London), I can't actually remember. But regardless of the circumstances of their procurement, they are great and I hope you enjoy them.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, the first 2 singles by James.

Jimone (Factory)
1. What's The World
2. Fire So Close
3. Folklore

James II (Factory)
1. Hymn From A Village
2. If Things Were Perfect
