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.
Keeping up the theme of Kitchenware Records demise, I thought I would mention The Kane Gang who remarkably only had a couple of bona fide hits with ‘Closest Thing To Heaven‘ and ‘Respect Yourself‘. That did actually surprise me as I thought ‘Gun Law‘ and ‘Motortown‘ had broke into the Top 40. They were soulful purveyors from the North East and also released other gems such as ‘Brother Brother‘ and ‘Don’t Look Any Further‘. Still their debut album ‘The Bad And Lowdown World Of The Kane Gang‘ should be in everyone’s collection.
So should this have been a hit or a miss?
