I was a fan back in the days. I am looking for a version of the track " Do you love too much" for many years now. Can you help?

Just got "On A Mission" a few days ago on CD. They're extremely hard to come by. I owned the recording once before and hopefully will keep this one. I also have "From The Heart", which is quite easy to find.

I also played On a Mission back until the groove ran thin ;)
I love her slightly grainy voice.. still stands out from other mainstream singers...
