About the Artist
Edsel is proud to announce its reissue programme of all six albums by Roddy Frame s Aztec Camera, originally released between 1983 and 1995, and now issued in deluxe casebound books with bonus tracks, the lyrics, and annotation by Uncut journalist Terry Staunton.
In the wake of the success of first album Hard Land, Hard Rain , WEA brought in Dire Straits Mark Knopfler to produce the follow-up at Air Studios in London. Knife was released September 1984, accompanied by the hit single All I Need Is Everything .
This reissue features the non-album singles sides, including two versions of Van Halen s Jump , as well as five songs recorded live at The Dominion in London in October 1984, originally released across two singles.
Top Customer Reviews
Knife's energy and positivity bursts into life on the first track, Still On Fire, which announces itself with a guitar riff similar to The Jackson Five's I Want You Back and David Ruffy giving an Oblivious-style performance on the drums. The shimmering soul-influenced pop of Just Like The USA is catchy enough, but misses a certain depth both in terms of music and lyrics to raise it above being just an average Frame album track.Read more ›
Their choice of Dire Straits' frontman Mark Knopfler alienated many of the band's hardcore fans, as they saw him as the antithesis of their heroes.
Wasn't he a bit commercial, a bit corporate, a bit obvious?
They needn't have worried.
While Knife marks a definite change in the sound of Aztec Camera, the production is entirely appropriate for the material written by Roddy Frame.
This is a record packed with top pop thrills, from first track Still on Fire right through to The Birth of the True, a live favourite of Frame's to this day.
Closing the album is the title track Knife, a heavier, guitar overdub laden affair, with Frame displaying all his axe-wielding talents, without sacrificing his melodic sensibilities.
A winning combination.
