Swans Way – When The Wild Calls (12″)


More well known for their haunting “Soul Train” (which I posted ages ago when I was a blogger not a presser!) This more obscure, unusual, melancholic pop song from 1984 was driven by the double bass of  Rick P Jones and helped by Mike Thorne’s precise production, it even has a trombone solo! B-side “Hangover” is glockenspiel led dance track with some great, treated Double Bass (very Whale-like in places) with those unique Robert Shaw vocals.



One thought on “Swans Way – When The Wild Calls (12″)”

  1. I finally got the hear the whole album The Fugitive Kind just recently and Soul Train now seems to me like just a taste of what beauty lies there.
    When The Wild Calls could easily be one of the stand out tracks of 1984 for me…..
    The instrumental part towards the end is really something else……
