No Little Boy was released on 23rd July 1993. John was unhappy that Couldn’t Love You More had been released. John was in fine voice throughout and Levon Helm, Phil Collins and Andy Sheppard all featured. Some songs were slightly remixed to bring more character to the songs but most songs were completely overhauled. Some of the tracks were deleted and four songs were entirely re- recorded, I Don’t Wanna Know, Sunday’s Child and Bless The Weather featuring John Giblin on bass, and a excellent new version of Just Now featuring Levon Helm on harmony vocals. The end result was a vastly superior album, much more in balance and John was happy.
It was a lot to expect from his fans to buy an album with such a similar content but many did and most prefer John’s reworking of Couldn’t Love You More to the original. However, there was no doubt that John’s credibility had been harmed by the release of two very similar albums. Was John correct to rework the material ? What were Permanent thinking of to release an album without John’s approval ? This was the end of the road for John and Permanent.
