Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds produced two of the finest pop moments of the seventies-Lowe's "Jesus of Cool" album, the wonderful "Repeat When necessary" from Edmunds. Amazing style, wit, rhythym that led to everyone from the likes of Springsteen to Cash, from Elvis Costello to The Stray Cats, offering songs, production postings, pleas for help.
"Seconds of Pleaasure" from the Lowe/Edmunds band Rockpile is, however, the culmination. Not a track is wasted and ,like The Beatles at their "Revolver". heyday it is a satisfying blend of two distinctive styles (with even a song from a third memebr thrown in - the wonderful Motown inspired "Heart"). Highs are Dave Edmunds performing a Chuck Berry cover that eclipses the original by some distance ("Oh, what a thrill) and the instantly addictive "Play that fast thing (one more time)".
This CD has, in addition, the tracks from the EP issued with the Vinyl original. Four Everly Brothers tracks performed solely with Lowe and Edmunds on guitars and vocals. Interesting side note - "When will I be loved" was also recorded in a more electric style by Edmunds for the soundtrack to "Stardust". The name of the fictional band in that film was "The Stray Cats" . The same name as the real band he worked with as producer 10 years later....

I used to own this album on vinyl and sad man that I am I even had the US import version with a free single of Messrs Edmunds and Lowe singing the Everly Brothers. As I recall 'Heart' was the first single, and pretty good it was too, but it wasn't the best track on the album. That was between 'Teacher Teacher' (a chunky but cheeky opener), 'You aint nothin' but fine' (an uptempo cover of the Fabulous Thunderbirds classic), 'When I write the Book' (Nick Lowe at his sentimental best) and - my favourite - 'If Sugar was as Sweet as You' (pure Dave Edmunds with that still unique guitar sound). 'Play that Fast Thing One More Time' also has the most wonderful lead guitar solo - presumably from Edmunds. Legal difficulties meant that this tremendous band, the first I ever saw in concert, waited for years to be able to record as Rockpile rather than as solo artists, they finally produced this great album..... and then promptly split up in acrimonious circumstances! Just about the only benefit was that it meant Terry Williams was free to become drummer for Dire Straits. Although Edmunds' 'Repeat When Necessary' and 'Twangin' were arguably slightly better albums, this was one pretty close to Rockpile at their tight and polished best. There you are, I hope I've persuaded the rest of you to buy it. As for me, I've convinced myself.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The only album this quartet made as Rockpile despite making a few others under the Edmunds or Lowe banner. What they all have in common is superb musicianship. They also backed Mickey Jupp on one half of his "Juppanese" album, another item well worth buying. Rockpile were essentially a rock and roll band with 'A' Levels, crossing over into R&B, country and soul.
On this album their choice of material isn't as impressive as usual, but such is their panache they make that almost irrelevant. I agree with the previous reviewer that "Oh What A Thrill" is a highlight, one of the best Chuck Berry covers I've heard, alongside Edmunds' version of "Run Rudolph Run" from the film "Party Party". "Play That Fast Thing" is typically fluid, as are all the uptempo songs. The best self-penned song is Lowe's more soulful "When I Write The Book".
With Lowe and Edmunds sharing lead vocals the album seems to come to a halt too soon. The only disappointment is that Rockpile didn't make more albums, such were the riches at their disposal. Even so, the bonuses here are of a rare quality. "Seconds Of Pleasure" is an apt title. Not a second is wasted.

Format: Audio CD
Nick Lowe first met rock survivor Dave Edmonds when the latter produced Nick's 1974 Brinsley Swartz LP `The New Favourites of Brinsley Swartz'. In 1977 Dave Edmonds nearly signed with Stiff but eventually went with Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label however Nick still worked on his next solo LP `Get it' and supported it by touring as part of the touring band which also featured Terry Williams and Billy Bremner.

The favour was returned and Dave Edmonds, Terry Williams and Billy Bremner all performed at various sessions for Nicks debut solo LP `Jesus of Cool'. Terry and Dave also toured the album as `The Last Chicken in the Shop'. They enjoyed the experience so much that they formed Rockpile and although they couldn't record together as a band so instead recorded the Dave Edmonds and Nick Lowe solo albums `Repeat When Necessary' and `Labour of Lust' respectively.

After touring both albums Dave's contact with Swan Song was complete and so they then recorded `Seconds of Pleasure' as Rockpile. They had a unique sensibility as torch bearers of Rock'N'Roll and also as a New Wave act, both of which were confirmed by the albums track listing with covers of Chuck Berry's `Oh What a Thrill' and standards `Teacher, Teacher', `If Sugar was as Sweet as you', `You Ain't Nothin' But Fine' alongside Squeeze's `Wrong Again (Lets Face It)'. Brinsley Swartz's `Play that Fast Thing (One More Time)' is also covered but the band really comes alive on the original compositions most noticeably `When I Write the Book' and `Fool Too Long'. After touring the album Nick and Dave again became solo acts but `Seconds of Pleasure' is a classic testament to a classic band.
