The Radio One Sessions CDs were very limited and sell for stupid money now.
So a few Radio One Sessions!
A combination of tracks recorded for the Saturday Live session in January 1985 and a Janice Long Session in September 1985.
A Severe Bout of Career Insecurity – MacKenzie song. No full studio recording exists only this Radio One Session.
Kites – A cover of the Simon Dupree and The Big Sound song. Billy had already recorded a stonking version with Alan Rankine as 39 Lyon Street and a version on the flipside of the 12” of “Breakfast”.
The Crying Game – Dave Berry’s 1964 hit given the Associates 1984 treatment. Performed first as part of an acoustic, pared-down set at Ronnie Scott’s.
The Girl That Took Me – A slowed down version of their flop single “Take Me To The Girl”. A wonderful camp, tongue in cheek dedication to Janice Long as well.
This Flame – Another MacKenzie song with no full studio recording and only exists on this Radio One Session.
