Hiya Gav,

I think Jim Jidhed is a tremendous singer!! Anyone who likes him should check out this solo album, titled "JIM"

I hear this is becoming increasingly difficult to find? Although the album has 4-5 cover songs on it, it's still quite good!!

The European version of the album came out in 1988 and featured a dude called Jim Jidhead on vocals. The U.S. version surfaced in 1989 and was kind of a compilation of the Euro release with Jim singing and new material with Pete Sandberg singing. Both versions feature 'Brave New Love', 'Go Easy' and 'Tears Don't Put Out The Fire' (which are the best tunes) but the original features a song called 'Dying By The Golden Rule' which is an absolute shit-kicker of a tune and makes the Euro version the one to track down. I think it is quite rare nowadays but try your hardest to find it because it is a great album.

With regard to their later releases, check out 'Shiftin' Gear' particularly the track 'Desperate Dreams' but don't bother with anything after that because they ran out of ideas!
