Last week, with ravishing €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked for your favourite underrated/obscure gem from the 1990s?
You answered in your hundreds, supplying another stunning playlist of overlooked masterpieces. Thank you.
Sadly, there could be only one winner.
Play On by Rae & Christian featuring The Jungle Bros
It just squeaks into the 90s, released in 1999 on a mix album by Rae & Christian called Blazing the Crop but it was never released as a single. To this day the only version you’ll find is the one that cuts off before the next song on the mix comes in. It’s a very more-ish tune, I can never help skipping back to the start when it finishes.
Change by Sandals
The 90s were a time when everyone thinks of the tail end of rave but there was a lot of other interesting stuff bubbling under the surface too. One such genre was acid jazz and my favourite group was from that genre was ‘Sandals’- they released an album called ‘Rite To Silence’ in 1994 which I still play a lot….
Sometimes Always by Jesus And Mary Chain & Hope Sandoval

Saddest, sexiest song ever. Should have been massive – J&MC’s most underrated single off their most underrated album.
