B-Sides
« on: May 18, 2011, 11:01:45 AM »
I was an avid record collector as a lad & one of the joys of buying a single was discovering a gem of a song on the b-side. Some artist put throwaway tracks on the b-side of singles or instrumental versions of the a-side. I always felt cheated when this happened. Fortunately TV Smith has always included first class material for his b-sdes. So what is your favourite? Just a bit of fun. I have stopped at Cheap as I don't think cd b-sides have the same magic. My choice would be We Who Wait as it is a classic Adverts song & not included on any album.  :)

The single that never was for me - Bored Teenagers.

I must agree with what you said above Nick, I too like to be beside the B-side!

Flip(side)ing heck!  ;)

Much as I love We Who Wait and Back From The Dead, it's always been Bored Teenagers for me.
