The high-water mark album of Nick Lowe's chequered career features the familiar single version of his biggest hit, 'Cruel to be kind', as well as several other witty songs, all with a great pop twist and the wonderful sheer artistry of Dave Edmunds and Billy Bremner on guitars.
Trivia: Nick Lowe and Rockpile sessioned on Mickey Jupp's Juppanese album (Buy that one too, it's great). They backed him up on his song 'Switchboard Susan'. He hated their cut of it, so Nick bought the tape. It's a standout track on here and Mickey Jupp should have kept it. His loss, our gain.
Fantastic album. Buy it NOW.
