Product Description

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.

Deacon Blue always had more strings to their bow than hit single chasing pop songs. This album finds them taking a giant stride away from past pop nightmares and shows the real depth of talent for a good song and good musicianship only really heard on previous b-sides and album tracks. The album as a whole sounds like a band enjoying themselves, the production is warm and informal as are the arrangments.

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.

Whenever the great and the good are asked for their favourite "most underrated" albums they tend to quote the usual suspects: The Las, the second Television album, Loveless and the like. These are great albums, but hardly undiscovered.

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.

I have been listening to this album for more than ten year and I never get fed up of it. In fact I know it so well that should I ever find myself stranded on a desert island without electricity I wouldn't even care because I can more or less play this album from beginning to end inside my head.
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.

Deacon Blue's ability to have amazing melodies, coupled with unexpected and brilliant music behind it is fantastic. Sometimes the lyrics are a little hard to understand the point, particularly 'A Brighter Star Than You Will Shine', but as a whole it's a great package.

A workmate loaned me this album a long time ago, I loved it straight away, I appreciate it even more now, the musicianship overwhelms at some points ,tingles on the back of your neck, a tear in your eye. You don't pick albums like this, they pick you. All the songs fit together, sometimes when Lorraine steps in its 'WOW' no wonder he married her. I hardly ever looked at the cover for song titles on this album, its a whole thing, sometimes you just have to listen!

I've always loved this album. Now I'm playing a lot more bass in bands of my own, it's Ewen Vernal's playing on this album that comes to mind as being inspirational.

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!

This third proper album was a clear change from the previous album and takes a number of listens. I rate this album ; it would have been so easy to have done another "when the world ....." but they did a different style with lots of 70's keyboard style riffs - well done!
