*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2014 2CD REISSUE ***

Hailing out of Scotland as a sort of Soulful yet Indie version of the Faces - like so many I never noticed del Amitri’s self-titled debut album on Chrysalis which came and went in May 1985. It wasn’t until I heard “Kiss This Thing Goodbye” in the Summer of 1989 that the love affair started. I’ve subsequently bought maybe twenty CD singles by them over the years - because like Love and Money, The Bible, The Fat Lady Sings, Deacon Blue, The Big Dish and The Silencers - their B-sides were often as good as (if not better than) the album tracks. Now fans are being treated to a “Re-Presents” reissue series of their three albums on A&M Records - “Waking Hours” (1989 and 1990), “Change Everything” (1992) and “Twisted” (1995). Here’s the beer-stained details...

UK Released 20 January 2014 - “Waking Hours” on Universal/Mercury 3753354 (Barcode 602537533541) is a 2CD reissue (in a jewel case) of their 2nd album first issued on A&M Records 9006 in July 1989. On the success of the “Nothing Ever Changes” single in January 1990 - the album was re-released in February 1990 with the sleeve used on this reissue (45:50 minutes). Disc 2 (51:02 minutes) gathers up 16 non-album studio tracks from 5 single releases - 2 of which are from 10” and 12” singles - so are new to CD. The mastering has been done by GEOFF PESCHE at Abbey Road and the 16-page liner notes (which feature interviews with Currie and Harvey along with press clippings) are expertly handled by TERRY STAUNTON.

I know I'll be accused of being biased, as I am a huge Del Amitri fan but this album is brilliant. From Move away Jimmy Blue to Hatful of Rain, every note is amazing. I don't think I can find anything wrong with this album, maybe it should have been a little bit longer but that's all! I put this album on in the car when I'm going on a long journey and I sing my heart out, obviously tho' only when I'm on my own!! The last time I saw D A was in Birmingham about 5 years ago and they were great, really entertaining, such talented guys. Even the old man, who's not a fan enjoyed the show. I cannot understand why their record company dropped them but I'd love to hear something new by Iain and Justin.

Went to see Del Amitri in March 1990 live in McGonagles, a now defunct venue in Sth. Anne Street, in Dublin. I didn't really want to go. I only knew one song which is the very last song on the album - 'Nothing ever happens'. The Dels seemed to be perplexed with the crowd - come on they shouted. The only song anyone seemed to know was 'Nothing ever happens'. Iwas blown away and immediately ran out the next day in my lunch hour to buy WAKING HOURS. Some people say that on WAKING HOURS Del Amitri found America. I dunno. Their first album in good in an indie sort of way but this is pure listening. Nobody's perfect, and thats something that I'm sure she'll know. How many people have thought that when they are (insecurely going out with someone?) or you've been reading SOS when its just your clock reading 505. Justin Currie's lyrics strike a chord with us insecure people left on this earth - and at the turn of the millennium, I'm afraid there are quite a lot of us. His songs, on this album, on the perfectly produced Change Everything or on the grown up album Twisted, wrench the heart out of you, tell of love lost, on purpose and by accident. They are a soap opera to themselves. Buy all the DELS stuff. They may not be the trendiest band around, but they certainly know how to strike that chord in your heart that hasn't been struck since that girl you asked to dance when you were 14 said 'no' or that guy you fancied like crazy asked your best friend to dance instead of you.

Although I am writing this from a slightly biased view as a huge Del Amitri fan, I think as such I will try to give balanced review.
Although not my favourite dels album, it has a nice upbeat, hopeful feel throughout a lot of it. This is unusual for Justin Currie's pervasively cynical songwriting style, but it is typical of the way that the dels can carry on writing upbeat, major key songs which so painfully describe love lost, or not coming at all.
I think the best tracks off this Album are 'Kiss This Thing Goodbye', and 'Nothing Ever Happens' which are both tops from the back catalogue and also on The Best Of.
If you have never listened to them before, I would recommend starting on Twisted, a later album, mainly because you are sure to know 'Roll to Me' already, and that the material is a lot more accessible.

I already owned the Change Everything and Twisted albums, having bought them donkeys years ago. They had just gathered dust until recently, when I bought a new MP3 player and thought I'd load up some music that I'd not listened to for years. Suddenly realised what I'd been missing - there's very little around today that can compare. Great for singing along to in the car (not so great in Tesco!). Decided to get Waking Hours (for 3 quid couldn't go wrong). It's now my favourite Del Amitri album! Great songs throughout. So impressed that I've now ordered Some Other Suckers Parade as well. Give them a listen, you won't be disappointed.
