Subject: Ian Pearson Band - Sally (1985)

Written By: singer on 08/04/12 at 8:49 am

Does anyone have the complete, non-instrumental version of the song?
I guess it's the most obscure song in the world, probably because it was released on an underground label:

Released in 1985 on Ian Pearson Band's 'Hot Dogs' album, 'Sally' was Rush Records' most commercially feasible effort. The song has developed a cult following, arguably thanks to the inclusion of a part of its music video in Dire Strait's 'Money For Nothing' video. Since Rush Records was an underground rock label, it didn't take advantage of Dire Strait's popularity.

About the label: Rush Records was an independent, underground music label, specialized in pop-rock and rock music. It was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles. Between 1983 and 1987, it released about 5 albums and 15 singles by two solo singers and three bands, including the Ian Pearson Band. Only two videos were commissioned, the first one in 1983 by a solo artist and 'Sally' in 1985. Due to financial struggles, the label became defunct in 1987.
