Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Daily Motion, Soundcloud or another site. These posts are for the music only.
Matt Johnson aka The The released one of the best records of the 1980’s in the shape of ‘Soul Mining‘ his first album for Epic Records. Infact the cassette version of it included a whole side of remixes which was worn to death several times by me. Surprisingly it didn’t spawn a hit single though many people thought it did. ‘Uncertain Smile‘, ‘Perfect‘ (only on the cassette and CD versions) and ‘This Is The Day‘ all fell well short of the Top 40. Luckily the next album changed all of that and he went on to release some more grand recordings.
So should it have been a hit or a miss?
