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.
After my ;ast post I hunted down my Skids records and found this singe ‘A Woman In Winter‘ and still couldn’t believe this got anywhere of note in the charts. This was taken from the classic ‘Absolute Game‘ album. In-fact ‘Goodbye Civilian’ also should have done better. Their demise came not long after releasing this album. They did issue two more singles ‘Iona‘ and ‘Fields‘ both of which flew below the radar. Then Richard Jobson went on to form The Armoury Show and Stuart Adamson started Big Country. Most people remember the early punk material but they were more than that really. You’ll see I’ve also added the demo version, it’s great comparing them both.
So should this have been a hit or a miss?
