Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits or excellent album tracks). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Soundcloud or other sites. These posts are for the music only.
Before Scritti Politti punctured the charts with ‘Wood Beez‘ they had a previous life on Rough Trade records and released a stunning debut album entitled ‘Songs To Remember‘. Today’s selection comes from this album that also included ‘The Sweetest Girl‘, later to be covered by Madness and ‘Jacques Derrida‘ both equally impressive. I don’t think Green Gartside’s voice has ever surpassed this in terms of performance.
So do you think this should have been a hit? I do!
