Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Generally I like all of Lindisfarne's albums, but along with `Back and Fourth', this is a particular favourite.

This is a collection of great tunes. All have the trademark distinctive Lindisfarne sound, and in line with their folk roots, the song writing tackles many issues of the day, from unemployment to hangovers. Not only contemporary issues, but the sound was also contemporary (it was recorded in 1982), fitting in with the popular music scene of the time, while still remaining distinct and unique. Quite an achievement!

From the doom and gloom of `Cruising to Disaster', the wry humour of `I Must Stop Going to Parties' and the balladeering of `About you', this is an essential album for all lovers of great music who like tunes with a social conscience.

Check out the cover art - it sums up the cheeky humour of the band to a tee, and along with `Dance Your Life Away' is one of my favourite albums covers of all time!

The edition being reviewed is part of the 1999 Lindisfarne reissues from Essential/Castle. The sound is good and sharp, and nicely restored. There are some new liner notes with an essay about the recording of the album, which is pretty interesting. There are no bonus tracks, but given the strength of the material on offer on the original album this really is not a problem.

A classic album, definitely one to get.

Format: Audio CD
An album with a lot of fine tracks recorded in the early 80s by the popular Geordie band. The title track (sort of) `Nights' leads off and it's a strong mid-paced song about the good old times spent in coffee bars just watching life go by. Next up is the fine `Start again' sung with bravado by Ray Jackson. `Cruising to disaster' is one of the late Alan Hulls protest songs about President Reagan and the men in the Kremlin being custodians of all the worst weapons in the world. It features a childrens choir singing the anthem like chorus at the end. Hulls vocals throughout this song are both edgy and angst-ridden. Next up, `The same way down' is much, much lighter in tone and features those trademark Lindisfarne harmonies whilst `Winning the game' was always a live favourite and is penned by Jackson/Harcourt rather than Hull. Great song. Last up on what was side one of the original LP is the rather humorous `About you'.

Track seven started up side two and is a Rod Clements song about `Sunderland Boys' - one for the Baggies to sing on the terraces ? I think not. Fine song none the less. The trite `Love is a pain in the neck' is next and then follows `Do what I want' which is one of the slightly light-hearted Lindisfarne moments ending with a laughing toy. The best track on the album for me is the ballad `Never miss the water' featuring again those classic harmonies. I never heard this one live and mores the pity. `I must stop going to parties' is pure theatre and features a seemingly drunk Ray Jackson at the end and some suitable party whistle noises. This guy just can't stop going to parties you see and it's doing him in ! Last track is another Alan Hull rant; `Stormy weather' continues the cruise missile themes and again is a sung in a stroppy delivery.

Great Album should be judged on its own merits as evolved music by a working band! times they change as does the music but although more mainstream this is undeniably Lindisfarne. Along with Amigos this is a vastly underated album. Love is a pain! and dont we know it Alan Hull could make a protest song a sing along anthem and Lindisfarne made them swing give Cruising to disaster or Stormy weather a listen

Mid-Eighties Geordie Folk Rocker 26 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Sleepless Nights" is a great example of Mid-Eighties Lindisfarne Folk Rock. Band leader Alan Hull is at his whimsical best on "Must Stop Going To Parties". Overall, a wide ranging effort from the Newcastle-On-Tyne lads. Oh, by the way, the album cover is quite fancy in itself.
