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.
On the day I am off to see Big Country play my home town of Corby, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their second album, ‘Steeltown‘. Coincidently the title track was written about my town. So it’s quite apt I use this song today. Sadly there won’t be no Stuart Adamson, but I’m sure they’ll play just as admirably. Both Bruce Watson and Mark Brzezicki survive from the original band. On bass which pleased me was founding member of fellow Scottish band Simple Minds, one Derek Forbes (still the hottest around).
So does this song still stand the test of time?
