    What do you mean by Final single? I remember a song called “Wild (or Wide) River” from the early 90’s (A really great song IMO).

    Excellent choice, Paul! A truly forgotten gem. And I love how songs like this peak so low on one chart and so high on another! I had never heard of the Kent Music Report before. Guess I’ll have to do a little research on it…thanks for the info AND for the great rips of this overlooked song.

    Thank you Dan I am glad that you like this great 12″ I love posting stuff like this so that more people can find out about it. I believe the Kent Music Report is the Australian singles chart.

    Happy Weekend, Paul!
    I know a lot of purists loathed his Abracadabra stint…but I love it! And I also love it that you posted this lesser chart hit of his…used to have the Extended on a mixtape back in 1986! Takes me back!
    And I never knew it was David Cole in the mix! He was doing quite a bit of Rock mixes before he moved on to Freestyle and C+C.
