Lou Gramm (1987) Midnight Blue GER 12″
Lou Gramm, the original voice of Foreigner, ventured out as a solo artist in 1987 and released the single “Midnight Blue” on January 31, 1987 to lead off promotion for his album ‘Ready Or Not’. “Midnight Blue” became Gramm’s most successful solo single on the Billboard charts, hitting #5 on the Hot 100 and reigning at the top of the Hot Album Rock Tracks chart for 5 weeks. Gramm would go on to release 2 more solo albums over the years and returned to Foreigner for brief stints in 1992, 1995 and 1998. This German 12″ came pressed on midnight blue vinyl and is labeled as an “extended remix” that runs a whopping total of 3:54. Which just happens to be the length of the album version. So… there’s that… (my rip is actually 5:24, so it is extended)
