Following the success of the second album, Deacon Blue toured extensively and by September 1990 were playing extended runs of sold out shows at Wembley and other arenas around the UK, and had enjoyed a # 2 hit with the Bacharach and David EP, produced by Jon Kelly (now included on The Rest ).
They decided to record Fellow Hoodlums with Kelly and the resulting album features more hit singles in Twist And Shout ,
Your Swaying Arms , Closing Time and Cover From The Sky . Issued in June 1991, the album reached # 2 and achieved Platinum status in the UK alone (300,000 sales).
This 2 CD and DVD casebound book reissue contains all the many non-album b-sides exclusive songs, remixes and live cover versions, along with a DVD featuring the promo videos.
The booklet features a newly-written note by Ricky Ross, all the lyrics to his songs, and ephemera and photos from his own collection.

It is such a pity that the record company hasn't felt the need to re-release this album to date. The singles are obviously available on the various compilations, but for me the songs are best heard in the context of the complete album. A perfect record, thank you Mr Ross and chums.
An undiscovered classic is something you can't even get your friends to listen to when you tell them it's sheer genius, so great is their prejudice. It's an album that can still make you tingle ten years on. An album that makes you think how fantastic your hi-fi is. Where you feel slightly embarrassed to be floating so happily in the sea of melancholy on some of the slower tracks.
I have never owned another Deacon Blue album, but I don't really feel the need. This one does it all. It is a true undiscovered classic. The rating of the other reviewers really does tell the whole story.
It's slightly more folky than some of DB's other stuff and the songs are a mix of rough and smoothe. I have always admired the sweet and sour quality that Lorraine McIntosh and Ricky Ross acheive and "One Day I'll Go Walking" is a great example. But the best song, in my view, has to be "Cover From The Sky", McIntosh's Solo.
Songs like "Goodnight Jamsie" and "James Joyce Soles" are a bit more off-kilter and to really enjoy take more listening than the rest. "Fellow Hoodlums" and "Day That Jackie Jumped the Jail" are up-tempo and tell strange and mad stories.
I could go on, but I love every song on this album and don't have enough time to praise them all. So I will end by saying that this is the perfect album. You will not regret owning it.
I re-bought this album on CD 2 weeks ago and its been on my mp3 loads since. Turns out Ewen plays on another of my all-time favorite albums, Hue & Cry's "Stars Crash Down".
Bass playing aside, it brings back so many happy memories for me. There's some great songs on this album, and the production sounds as fresh as ever.
Should be in every bass players collection!
