Product Description

* Since the break-up of The Specials in 1983, Terry Hall has issued records as a member of the Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield, The Lightning Seeds, Terry, Blair & Anouchka and Vegas as well as releasing three solo albums.
* This is Terry's second solo album, originally released in 1997 and features the two singles "Ballad Of A Landlord" and Terry's wonderful version of Todd Rundgren's "I Saw The Light" as well as two songs
co-written by Blur's Damon Albarn.
* The eight bonus tracks (the b-sides of the singles) include Terry's renditions of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero", Bacharach & David's "Close To You" and Andy Williams' hit "Music To Watch Girls By" as well as an interview with Radio 1's Mary Ann Hobbs.
Sleeve note is by Rhoda Dakar, vocalist on the Specials' "The Boiler".
* Following the demise of Telstar soon after the album's release, copies
of "Laugh" have been unavailable for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud. 25 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's a great CD and music like this just goes to show me once again how ridiculous the industry has become because this album should have been a number one seller. It has so many number one hits in my radio dreamland. I only hope that Terry hasn't lost his loving heart after having it so broken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 16 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this out of curiosity having heard "Ballad of a Landlord" by chance on Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie's radio show one evening. I really had little or no idea of Terry Hall's solo work but thought this track was absolutely terrific.

I am delighted to say the entire album follows suit. Some are obviously better than others, as with any album, but there is not a bad track on it.

CD's tend to swap and change in most people's cars. This one has stayed in mine since i bought the CD and i imagine it will be there for some time to come.

A really superb album and i urge you to try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Under Played on the Airways. 16 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
A Brilliant Underrated Classic.
This is a Great CD and deserves much more airplay.
Fantastic upbeat catchy melodies with lyrics full of the sentiments of a broken heart...its Hauntingly brilliant.
As addictive as "Deception" and follows it brilliantly, but more of a sister CD than a follow up as many of the tracks like one of my favourites, "Summer Follow Spring" and "Love To See You" would fit flawlessly on "Deception".
I also love the way a Guest track is always included and "I Saw The Light" is an excellent choice and a great way to end the CD.
Just hope Terry Hall keeps up the good work and releases some new stuff...Please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chill with Terry! 21 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this to replace a cassette of the same, quite chilled, worth buying for the incomparable " Ballad Of A Landlord" alone. Arrived promptly in excellent condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Sweet 21 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Terry has always blended perfect sweet pop with wit and honesty. One of the most prolific artists in the UK, "Laugh" presents a darker, lonely side of Hall after his brutal divorce. The lyrics seem a little too introspective but his unusual since of pop and hooks delivers most nicely. Terry explores more of his falsetto range on this outting going in and out of high and low notes, but the result is very interesting. Love to See You and Sonny and his Sister are utterly divine and For the Girl will leave you smiling. From ska with the Specials to Fun Boy Three, Colourfield, Vegas and with Blair/Anouchka (which is an amazing rarity), Terry shines once again. Oh and the sleeve is perfect.
