Alan Rankine – The Sandman (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 5th December 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

-DjPaulT Recommended 12″

“The Sandman” is the debut solo single by Scottish musician and record producer Alan Rankine best known as keyboardist/guitarist for the new wave band Associates, which he co-founded with Billy Mackenzie in the late 1970s.

“The Sandman” was taken from Rankine’s second studio album “She Loves Me Not”. A very underrated track “The Sandman” failed to chart and ends up as one of my recommended 12″ singles.
