I have no idea why BGO coupled these two albums. It should have been Silver Pistol/Nervous On The Road and Please Don't Ever Change/New Favourites. In that way we could have had chronologically and musically correct couplings but there you go. On Nervous, Brinsleys are evolving from The Band-light of Silver Pistol to a more versatile and diverse musical ensemble who can switch from rock&roll to country to r&b at the drop of a hat. It is a cracking album and justifiably hailed as the best work Brinsleys ever done. On their final album, New Favourites, Brinsleys went pop that is most strongly evidenced in the leading track, the Nick Lowe classic,(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding? It has been coming ever since the days of Silver Pistol when they began to show glimpses of pop sensibility. Aided by equally pop-savvy hands of the producer Dave Edmunds, they made a quantum leap towards full-blown pop in their swan song. It is a great album if a bit uneven compared to the partnered Nervous. One complaint I have of New Favourites is its gratingly thin sound which is made even more conspicuous next to the warm and rich sonics of Nervous. I don't know what Dave Edmunds was thinking but how come brass sounds like bloddy kazoo? Or is it kazoo that sounds like brass?
