Never in a million years - Boomtown Rats

In 1980, Gerry Cott left the Boomtown Rats. The group continued as a quintet and released their fifth album, 'V Deep' in February 1982. Before that, the beautiful single 'Never in a million years' was released. It was released in a remarkable sleeve, featuring six holes at the front, representing the zeros in 'million', but omitting the band name and the title of the song.

As a result, many did not know of the single's release. It only reached number 62 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 892
Found: Melody Maker, Den Haag, June 17, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Never in a million years' / 'Don't talk to me'
