'Aint no doubt' was way better than it had any right to be.

'Cowboy Dreams' we writted by Paddy off Prefab Sprout - was 'Croc Shoes' also?

Voted for Big River '96, a Jon Kelly remix strikes me as gilding the lily.

I believe I watched the TV series of which Crocodile Shoes was the titular song, but can remember nothing about it except Jimmy Nail was in it.

Thread q:

At which point? Probably when he agreed to do "Morons from Outer Space", that was when he realised.

lol bless you nick b

crocodile shoes 2 was the first album i chose/asked for iirc after being dazzled by 'country boy' on live and kicking in about 1996. blue roses still occasionally gets in my head, even tho i always hated it.
