JERRY HARRISON - MAN WITH A GUN

Hello and welcome back.... Love this track, you don't hear it very often.

I found it on a CD i have called '80s The Lost Hits'.
U.S musician 'Jerry Harrison' is best known as Synth and Guitarist for 80s band 'Talking Heads'

From 1988, Man with a Gun was from the album 'Casual Gods'... I particularly love the synth that goes side to side, adds a real atmosphere to the track.. Enjoy

THE COOL NOTES - HOUSE OF LOVE

Hello and welcome back... I found it!!! After 25 year of searching for this particular song, i finally found it.... Let me explain.

In 1989 i had a car accident and was recovering in hospital for 4 months so i had a lot of time to listen to the radio, catch up on daytime soaps.. ect.

An album that came my way was called '1989 Hot House Hits' and had a collection of various dance tracks... it was a pretty good album. Fast forward a year my tape got stuck in a tape deck and it was lost forever.
Trying to track down a song that all i could remember was a guy saying 'This aught to be a song'.. that was it, even google couldn't find it UNTIL...

Yesterday while searching for some old tapes on Ebay, i recognized the album cover and thought 'That looks familiar'.. it was my beloved album and the 25year search was over.
                                                           

Released on Public Records in 1988, The Cool Notes were a U.K band (south London).
The track 'House of Love' was a single/ 12" only as well as B side to the track 'Magic Lover.. doesn't seem to be on any albums that i can find.

Such an awesome song, so glad i found it...
