Love's been a little bit hard on me - Juice Newton

'Love's been a little bit hard on me' was released in 1982. It reached number 7 on the US Billboard Hot 100 during the summer of that year. I bought the single because I liked the song, while it met with disapproval of my sister, with whom I had an almost shared record collection at the time. Suffice to say that she was rather shocked that I came home with this one...

My collection: 7" single no. 135
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1982
Cost: 3,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Love's been a little bit hard on me' / 'Ever true'

Queen of hearts - Juice Newton

Juice Newton was born as Judith Kay Cohen on February 18, 1952 in Lakehurst, New Jersey (USA). During the first half of the Seventies she was part of a band called Juice Newton and Silver Spur, but this band broke up after two albums. In 1977, Juice Newton embarked on a solo career.

'Queen of hearts' first appeared on Dave Edmunds' album 'Repeat when necessary' in 1979. Recorded two years later, Juice Newton's version sold more than one million copies in the USA and peaked at number 20 in the Dutch Top 40. The song is also featured prominently in Oliver Stone's 1986 movie 'Salvador'.

My collection: 7" single no. 3133
Found: July 24, 1999
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Queen of hearts' / 'Angel of the morning'
