Subsequent Jimmy Nail stuff

Crocodile Shoes

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodile_Shoes

Quote:
Crocodile Shoes is a British 7-part television series made by the BBC and screened on BBC One in 1994.

The series was written by and starred Jimmy Nail as a factory worker who becomes a country and western singer. The show's eponymous theme tune "Crocodile Shoes" became a chart hit for Nail, as did the album of the same name.

A sequel, Crocodile Shoes II, followed in 1996 and the theme tune "Country Boy" was a hit for Nail too.

Paddy McAloon of Prefab Sprout supplied five original songs to the two series, all of them recorded by Jimmy Nail.

The series is currently being re-screened on UK channel, Drama, as of February 2016.

It SEEMS that actual musical numbers are edited out of the YT episodes? (I guess to avoid copyright)
It might be better to watch on dailyMotion.
Vids at daily motion site seem to play with buffering issues? They play better embedded here :)

JIMMY NAIL

Published on Dec 1, 2013
The craggy faced Jimmy Nail hailed from Newcasle in the North East of England in 1954. After a spell singing in Nightclubs with his band King Crabs he became a television actor while still pursuing a singing career. In 1985 he reached number 3 in the UK charts with a cover version of 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore', and it would be 1992 before he again concentrated on music and 'Aint No Doubt' hit the top spot. Two years later and 'Crocadile Shoes' made it to position 2, and the following year a Countryand Western song 'Cowboy Dreams' crept into the top 20. Jimmy Nail had his own inimitable style and we should have heard more of this 'geordie' in the music circuit because he knew how to hold his audience and produce a great experience for all.
