I absolutely love this record, being a long-haired carpenter who chops wood to put food on the table. :grinning:
Got introduced to this from Lovefingers’ Fingertracks Vol 1 Comp. :+1:

I’m using the Chanson term loosely in this thread, but this deserves a place here - a towering track by Cher produced by Phil Spector with the big Wall of Sound/Wrecking Crew treatment - astounding!

An unbeatable melancholy tour de force by Liam Hayes recorded in 1994 but sounding like a lost Surf’s Up era Brian Wilson number.

Recommend this gem from Gavin James. Year unknown.

One of the great “lost” singles of the early 80s, Roy White & Steve Torch’s Parade was a sparkling blend of Scott Walker vocals and sublime wall-of-sound orchestration.

Both ex-members of Pink Military, the pair had been in various Liverpool punk bands in the late 70’s. They released 4 singles, this being the second produced by Paul Buckmeister and featured the Sid Sax Orchestra.

Despite heaps of critical acclaim only the single ‘Parade’ managed any impression on the charts making number 54 in 1982.

A forgotten classic and a hit that never was.
