The Jasmine Minks (RSD22 EDITION)

    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2022 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

    Cold Heart is a stone cold classic as good as anyone ever really. So glad this is coming out on vinyl - Alan McGee August 2021

    Unavailable on vinyl since it's release in 1986 on the famous Creation label. We've added two extra tracks from the same recording sessions, that were previously used as B sides. Sometimes referred to as The Blue Album, because of the colour of the sleeve, we're pressing it on Sea Blue Vinyl in a recreated version of the original sleeve. The group are still active and Covid permitting will be playing shows this year. Sleeve Notes by Alan McGee.

    The Jasmine Minks

    John Peel 17.02.86

      “The Jasmine Minks were the first real Creation band – their single ‘Think!’ was the fourth single we put out. An amazing unknown gem of a band. Working-class heroes – to me, anyway.” Alan McGee

      Formed in Aberdeen in 1983, the Jasmine Minks were one of the original artists on Alan McGee’s fledgling Creation label and regulars at the storied Living Room. They recorded several classic singles for the label – among them ‘Think!’, ‘What’s Happening?!’ and ‘Cold Heart’ – plus a number of LPs. These recordings are their only two sessions for the BBC.

      This session for the legendary John Peel show, features the band’s original line-up with powerhouse songwriting duo Jim Shepherd and Adam Sanderson; among tracks included are ‘The Ballad of Johnny Eye’ and ‘Cry For A Man’, both favourites with their fans.

        “The Jasmine Minks were the first real Creation band – their single ‘Think!’ was the fourth single we put out. An amazing unknown gem of a band. Working-class heroes – to me, anyway.” Alan McGee

        Formed in Aberdeen in 1983, the Jasmine Minks were one of the original artists on Alan McGee’s fledgling Creation label and regulars at the storied Living Room. They recorded several classic singles for the label – among them ‘Think!’, ‘What’s Happening?!’ and ‘Cold Heart’ – plus a number of LPs.

        Adam Sanderson had left the band by the time of their second BBC session, this time for Janice Long, with Wattie Duncan joining (and actually getting them the session!) This second outing features early versions of some of Shepherd’s best-known songs, including future favourite ‘Cut Me Deep’ and the soulful ‘Ballad’ (later released as ‘Soul Station’) – plus a rampant version of old single ‘Where The Traffic Goes’.
