That's because Hugh Cornwell went solo and he plays this in his own gigs (presumably because he wrote it) with his son and daughter also in the band.

Say him play this when he opened for Blondie a few years back.

I used to like this song mostly for the hook, but this time I realized that the rest of the song is actually the best, most beautiful part.

Not their best work I must say. Solid 8 though.

I love this song every time I hear it. So many memories (fond ones) associated with this version.

I have to admit, I like Tori's version as well...but a very different vibe.

And Golden Brown...LOVE THAT SONG.

Good stuff...this is TGIF music for me.

Thanks, Bill!

Agreed! With Robert Plant singing in a proper British voice, rather than in that weird mid-Atlantic drawl he championed with Led Zepp

They had their share of mellow tunes, especially by the early 1980's.  It would be nice to hear "No Mercy" as well.
