Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits or as from today excellent album tracks). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Soundcloud or other sites. These posts are for the music only.
Today I’ve changed my slant on the hidden gems and decided to start rather than highlighting just singles, I would seek out excellent album tracks that I feel should have been singles (well in my mind that is). I started with a track which I just had as ‘This Is My Jam‘ track and it’s by The Stranglers and is taken from the sadly most ignored album ‘Aural Sculpture‘ which was released in 1984. It features the classic line up, and the album included the singles ‘Skin Deep‘, ‘No Mercy‘ and ‘Let Me Down Easy‘. But this track ‘North Winds’ for me showed them a single unit producing a great sound.
So should this have been a single or not?
