Hidden Gems : The Silencers – Wild Mountain Thyme

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.

I know this song has been covered many times, but in my opinion none better and besides it links well with my previous post on JJ Gilmour (one time member of The Silencers). True the band have done many great songs including ‘Painted Moon‘, ‘The Real McCoy‘, ‘I Can Feel It‘ and ‘Bulletproof Heart‘ to name just a few. I know I’m biased as there’s a big connection between me and this band from long ago. But like quite a bands of the time they were ignored by the vast majority of the record UK buying public – bigger in Europe! This was even used by the Scottish Tourist Board for a TV advertisment.

So should it have been a hit or a miss?

Bonus Track – ‘Scottish Rain’
