Sit down - James

James performed an acoustic session on Dutch radio in the early Nineties. The track 'Sit down' was included on a cd compilation, and greatly impressed me. I started getting curious what the original track sounded like, so I started searching for the original single. Well, it was a more powerful version but somehow I didn't get into it. Now that I heard it again recently, I was convinced that this was actually a great track.

The single spent three weeks at number 2 in the UK singles chart, being held off the top spot by 'The one and only' by Chesney Hawkes. Later on the band had to sell the rights to the song to Mercury Records to help pay off debts to the record company.

My collection: 7" single no. 2331
Found: Record fair, June 25, 1995
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Sit down' / 'Sit down (Live at G-mex)'
