The purpose of this blog is to try to catalogue those unusual items which span the length of time, some not everyone will see or even know exist. And this means that it won’t always be in chronological order (I apologise) as some things just surface, or others have been in box for a number of years tucked away like little hidden gems + this band never stop so its hard to keep up…!
But we are off to a good start with the new album Jump on Board (available to buy over at official www.texas.uk.com), and everything is up to to date on the promo front before we get caught up in the mayhem of tour dates and travelling. And with that, its time to start stepping back in time and loading the rest of the ensemble archive as a kind of homage (i think?) to a truly great band.
This weeks featured promo CD is from 1999 and was the 3rd single taken from the album the Hush, which had already gone double platinum by then.
The fifth studio album, the Hush debuted at no.1 and stayed in the album charts for 43 whopping weeks!
When we are together eventually peaked at no.12 in the singles chart in Nov which was a travesty as its one of the highlights of a live TEXAS gig & a funk-tastic pop anthem.
…anyway I digress, so this promo CD which was snaffled from a well know radio station is presented in a jewel CD case (not the usual cardboard sleeve) with 1 title track (the dance mixes were then part of the actual multi disc release – which we will load later)
