This is the US edition of the classic Steve McQueen, released in 1985. (Check out the five-star reviews on Amazon of this album.)
Legal issues with the estate of Mr McQueen prevented his name being used, so the name was changed. The song "Faron Young" is called "Faron" on the sleeve notes. The music is exactly the same, with the addition of three good-quality "B-sides" at the end.
Sprout fans will be interested in the 2007 release of a "Legacy edition" of this album, rumoured (at the time of writing) to contain acoustic re-workings of the original songs by Paddy McAloon, in addition to re-mastered originals by produced Thomas Dolby.
One of the classic, timeless albums of the 80's by one of England's greatest songwriters. Up there with the very best.
