Don't tell me the time - Martha Davis

After having been in the Motels for over a decade, Martha Davis released her first solo album entitled 'Policy' in October 1987. Musicians who worked with her included Clarence Clemons, Kenny G and Charlie Sexton. In November 1987, she had a number 8 hit in Australia with 'Don't tell me the time'. In the US Billboard Hot 100 the single stalled at number 80.

I bought this single based on the confused notion that Martha Davis was a member of Martha & the Muffins. Since I loved some of the Motels singles as well, and this song is actually quite good, this turned out to be quite a pleasant acquisition.

My collection: 7" single no. 3875
Found: Plaatboef, Rotterdam, July 20, 2009
Cost: 0,25 euro
Tracks: 'Don't tell me the time' / 'Lust'
