In 1994 a third single from Wide-Eyed And Ignorant was planned. The Spinster single made it all the way to the 'proof' stage before being cancelled at the last moment by the record company. An image of this sleeve is in the booklet for 'The Way We Were'. The songs (all recorded in studio) were to be Spinster / Angeline / I Want To Be Allowed To Love You / I'll Make It Up To You. Recorded around the same time were the songs Easy Way Out / Senses / There Is No Time which all remain unreleased.
