Texas ‎– I Don’t Want A Lover (CD SINGLE)

Bringing the late ’80’s theme to a close with this Classic.

From January 1989 and the breakthrough hit for Texas (via Glasgow, Scotland)

The line-up was Bass; – John McElhone (Altered Images, Hipsway, Drums – Stuart Kerr (Gun, Friends Again, Love And Money) Guitars – Ally McErlaine, Sharleen Spiteri (who also did lead vocals) So quite a lot of experience in the band.

Big, rocky production from Tim Palmer and lots of signature slide guitar. I forgot it has a bass synth line. This was from their debut album, “Southside”

The additional tracks include the acoustic “All In Vain” – which features more bluesy Slide guitar and the organ led, acoustic strum “Believe Me” – quality tracks.

  1. It’s funny. I was all in on Texas. John McElhone from Altered Images was a plus, but it might have been down to simply the band’s Scottish origins that was enough for me. Bought all of the singles. Got the album…then nothing more. I understand that the band are still a going concern, but i’ve not heard it.
