Who else has heard this song by The Cross? And why the hell wasn't it put on the Blue Rock album and then become a number 1 hit?

It's not a very good song, actually - so it was probably clever to release it as a single B-side for the die-hard fan rather than annoy the casual album listener ...

This could've been much much bigger. Just like a lot of Queen/ Cross songs.

A number 1 hit? It wasn't even considered good enough for an album that only had limited world wide release. Roger knew that The Cross was always going to be a Queen side project and closed it down before fans deserted in droves.

A shame really as I thought Blue Rock was the best of the 3 Cross albums.

Isn't that an oxymoron?

No it isn't. It's a grammatical error (I think).

PS. Good web link.
