  • Credits

    Squeeze: Chris Difford, Glenn Tilbrook (guitar, vocals); Paul Carrack (keyboards, vocals); John Bentley (bass, background vocals); Gilson Lavis (drums).
    Producers: Roger Bechirian, Elvis Costello, Dave Edmunds.
    Digitally remastered edition of the "Difbrook-Tilford" band amd the entry of Paul Carrack (Ace, Mike + The Mechanics) into the band as keyboardist and vocalist. In a brave move, Carrack's first contribution to the band (his voice on "Tempted") gave the group their first global Number One hit and the one song that most people remember them for. It also remains one of their best--and now comes with two new tracks: "The Axe Has Now Fallen" and "Looking For A Love".
    This UK edition includes two bonus tracks.
    Personnel: Chris Difford, Glenn Tilbrook (vocals, guitar); Paul Carrack (vocals, keyboards); Gilson Lavis (drums).
    Photographer: Bob Bromide.
    In one of the smartest free transfer deals ever, Squeeze were able to plug the massive midfield gap left by the departing Jools Holland with the nimble-fingered Paul Carrack. They gained an extra vocalist in the process, but there seems to have been little room for Carrack's underrated and expressive voice. For many, the album's best track was "Tempted," with Carrack taking lead vocal (with help from producer Elvis Costello). Close behind in the queue is "Someone Else's Bell," "Is That Love," "In Quintessence"--in fact the whole set, except possibly the uncomfortable chord/key change of "F-Hole," which leads back to the hypnotically great "Tempted."
