Thomas Lang – The Happy Man (12″)


Liverpool pop pinup, Thomas Lang, never quite made it to the pop superstardom he deserved. He had a very distinct, jazzy music style and this was his most successful single. Piano and Saxophone prominiently in the mix this shows pretenders like Matt Bianco how it’s done. Ex OMD keyboardist , David Hughes was producer, mixer and co-writer. This was a rerecorded version that appeared on the album “Scallywag Jaz” (which is worth checking out). Four solid tracks on here, including a brilliant cover of “Sons Of” made famous by Jacques Brel.

Lang is still doing stuff now , he owns Parr Street studios in the city centre.
