2022 Charity Shop Purchases #62 -The Charlatans - North Country Boy (CD Single)
When leaving Carrbridge rather than going down the A9 we decided to take a more picturesque and much longer route home.It was a beautiful day and the drive over the Cairngorms to Tomintoul was spectacular. From there we drove to Ballatar (via a diversion) and hit the Highland Hospice shop.
The CDs were 4 for a pound and one that I picked up was the CD single of North Country Boy by the Charlatans from 1997 on the Beggars Banquet label.
I already had a copy on the Melting Point compilation but hey it was 25p and included two other tracks.
It was a song from their 5th album Tellin'Stories from the same years. A few years back I picked up what I thought was Tellin' Stories only to find that the CD within the box was in fact The Charlatans. Full story here
The singe reached number 4 in the UK charts albeit in was only in the charts for 5 weeks around the time that they were at their commercial peak. Better late than never I suppose.
