Post subject: Ghost Town - 30th Anniversary Reply with quote

Yes, I know it has been mentioned before, but this year is, after all, the 30th anniversary of Ghost Town. Is anything being done to commemorate this? A re-release would be good.

As far as I am aware the single was released on 12 June 1981, though another source has this as 20 June.

The chart statistics were as follows:
20.6.81 - entered at 21
27.6.81 - up to 6
4.7.81 - up to 2
11.7.81 - up to 1
18.7.81 - 1
25.7.81 - 1
1.8.81 - down to 2
8.8.81 - down to 5
15.8.81 - down to 12
22.8.81 - down to 22
29.8.81 - down to 30
5.9.81 - down to 47
12.9.81 - down to 56
19.9.81 - down to 73

Spent 14 weeks in the chart.

The number 1 directly before Ghost Town? One Day In Your Life by Michael Jackson. And the one directly after? Green Door by Shakin' Stevens!

A new release of the original record but include live recordings of the 3 songs from 1981 gigs would do.
