Slide on over this way, would yah?
So this is another jewel from the vinyl collection, although it seems it was released later on CD, though no longer in print. Hipsway released two albums, the first in 1986, from which this track comes. Their second, Scratch the Surface, was released in 1989. They were a band that I wanted to like more, but the reality of their album just didn't support the desire. Most of it lacked emotion, sounding as if they really didn't put any love into their work.
It wasn't so much that they were bad, it was more that they were flat, their music never really rose above tepid. There are moments there, though, when you hear something more, maybe there is something there...but it was never fully realized.

The bass player, John McElhone, was in Altered Images before Hipsway and later went on to join Texas.
