Coming home - Marshall Hain

Say Marshall Hain, and most people with some knowledge of the late seventies charts will reply with 'Dancing in the city'. A typical one hit wonder act, Julian Marshall and Kit Hain only released on album ('Free ride') before going their separate ways. Kit Hain tried to launch a solo career, but that didn't go so well either.

'Injustice!', I cry, for the follow-up to 'Dancing in the city' is a jewel. 'Coming home' was released in October 1978 and scraped the lower regions of the UK singles chart for a couple of weeks. The album 'Free ride' includes a version that is slightly different from the single version, because it omits the great fretless bass intro, replacing it with vocals from Julian Marshall instead.

So here it is, in all its glory, the single version of 'Coming home' and the B-side 'Different point'. Just to prove that I was right in buying this, even if I was just an eight year old kid.
