Oh how the years go by - Simon Climie

'Oh how the years go by' is a track on Amy Grant's 1994 album 'House of love'. That's how I heard it first, at least. The writer credit was given to Simon Climie, which isn't that surprising since he wrote lots of songs for other artists in the Eighties and Nineties.

What is surprising, is that I found this single by Simon Climie himself. It was released in 1992, and his version is at least as good as Amy's. It wasn't a hit, like most of his solo output.

My collection: 7" single no. 4989
Found: Kringloop, Den Haag, January 15, 2011
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'Oh how the years go by' / 'Believe in me'

Soul inspiration - Simon Climie

After Climie Fisher broke up, Simon Climie embarked on a solo career, signing to Columbia Records to release his debut solo album 'Soul inspiration'. The title track was released as a single, which reached number 60 in the UK singles chart in the autumn of 1992.

After the commercial disappointment of both the single and the album, Climie switched to production and songwriting. In the late Nineties, he became involved with Eric Clapton, acting as producer and sometime co-writer.

My collection: 7" single no. 1729
Found: HMV, London, October 17, 1992
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Soul inspiration' / 'Life goes on'
