A crucial compilation of one of the UK's finest bands, showcasing the very best of their contribution to the fine art of the pop single. Squeeze provided amiably clever popular music which struck hearts, tickled the ribs, moistened the eyes and tapped the feet. Difford & Tillbrook were indecently good at narrating a good domestic yarn over a suitably pithy couplet. They produced a steady stream of enduring pop classics over three decades including the hits Cools For Cats, Hourglass, Black Coffee In Bed, Pulling Mussells (From The Shell) and Up The Junction.
Essential Squeeze is a 20 track album including all their key hits along with two previoulsy unreleased tracks, 'Library Girl' and 'Last Call For Love' (both newly mixed by Glenn Tilbrook this year).

Labelled With Love... Tempted... Up The Junction... Another Nail In My Heart... Is That Love... Black Coffee In Bed... Loving You Tonight... ah well, never was that good at maths. Some other tempting reasons might be Cool For Cats, Annie Get Your Gun, Some Fantastic Place, Goodbye Girl, Last Time Forever, Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)... just typing the titles fills me with intense pleasure, such is the lustre of these tremendously good songs.
There are a generous twenty tracks to lose yourself in, from the early synth-soaked Take Me I`m Yours (I wouldn`t have begun with this downbeat Chris Difford-sung number, but they never ask me to compile these things) to later delights which include a blissful, too little known charmer, sung with soulfulness to spare by sometime member Paul Carrack, the gorgeous Loving You Tonight. He also sings most of Tempted, one of Squeeze`s finest songs, as is the miraculous Labelled With Love. I`d go so far as to say that if you don`t like these last two, then something must surely be seriously lacking in your make-up.
Over exactly 75 minutes the band prove their entitlement to the crown abdicated by the Beatles a few years before Squeeze formed in London, that of the best British pop group of their time - except by then pop had become rock. They came out of the same rich melting-pot as Ian Dury, Nick Lowe, Madness and the rest of the pub-rock crush, which also included Costello and Dr Feelgood as honorary members. So much talent, bursting to be heard! Dury was a wordsmith of genius, as is Costello, but so is Difford, and as for great vocalists, Glenn Tilbrook was and is not only one of the most scintillating singers Britain has thrown up, but a writer of tunes to die for. His intricate melodies to Difford`s lyrics are of an incredible consistency. They truly are the Lennon-McCartney of their day - and they`re about to tour again as I write!
This single-CD compilation is a terrific taster for anybody who hasn`t heard much of this wonderful band. And then you`ll want to get hold of Cool For Cats, East Side Story, Frank, Play, Ridiculous, Some Fantastic Place...
You lucky people!
