Originally from the ‘True For You’ album, Steel Claw is about the underbelly of Dublin in the early 80s and became one of Paul’s most succesful songs via the 1984 Tina Turner version on ‘Private Dancer’. Paul says about the original, “My voice and spirit were really tired by the end of these album sessions and I never liked the final result”, as such the ‘Dancer In The Fire’ version features a new vocal recorded in 1999.
