Kevin Rowland & Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile) (12″)

So as the party season descends on us I thought I’d dig this well preserved piece of vinyl from 1982. The follow up to the fiddletastic “Come On Eileen” but not as big a hit. This was a cover of a Van Morrison track from 1972 and at the time, like a lot of other impressional youths I did not realise. A three track 12″ the other tracks are “T.S.O.P.” ( think a funkier “Come On Eileen”) and “Let’s Make This Precious” a wonderful track with superb lyrics. Rowland’s voice and ragged gypsy image was unique amongst the make up of the New Romantics and good on him for being different.
