Lovesighs – An Entertainment was No-Man's first mini-album, released in 1992 on the One Little Indian label. It comprised a collection of the band's singles and b-sides from 1990 and 1991.

An ambitious and diverse collection of sensual songs and innovative instrumentals, the album combined influences from dub, dream pop, classical and hip-hop music.

Both "Colours" and "Days In The Trees" were singles of the week in Melody Maker, Sounds and on Channel Four's teletext.

Lovesighs was trailed by a further single "Ocean Song".

"Days in the Trees" shares its main melody with the Porcupine Tree track "Mute" (from 1994's Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape).
