Not Released in the UK


On this day in 1993 the Super Black Market Clash album was released, thirteen years after the original Black Market Clash was issued as a 10" album in the USA & Canada (it wasn't released in the UK but I do recall that you could get it on import).

The Super Black Market Clash album was a very extended version of the 1980 Record, containing 25 tracks if you bought the 3 X 10" Vinyl version and 21 tracks on the CD and Cassette. It's mainly B-Sides but it does shed light on what great flip sides they had (apart from the terrible 1-2 Crush on You!). I wish they had kept Capital Radio One on the album instead of replacing it with the Cost of Living EP version.

I was listening to the album last night and it was a nice reminder of just how good they were back in the day. I have to say though that I much prefer the first thirteen songs more than the last 8 tracks on the CD (not a huge fan of a lot of the "dance" stuff they were doing then).
