  • Credits
    ProducerLoudon Wainwright III; Chaim Tannenbaum
    Engineer

    Personnel includes: Loudon Wainwright III (vocals, guitar, cymbals); Chaim Tannenbaum (vocals, banjo, harmonica, saxophone); Maria Muldaur (vocals); Peter Filleul (keyboards); Ruari McFarlane (bass); Dave Mattacks (drums); Danny Thompson, Christine Collister, Martin Carthy, John Kilpatrick.
    This is the second in a pair of albums that Loudon Wainwright recorded in the mid-'80s with producer Richard Thompson. As with its predecessor, I'M ALRIGHT, MORE LOVE SONGS benefits greatly from Thompson, who as a songwriter himself, brings deft support to the arrangements. The ensemble is at times large, incorporating horns, fiddles, and accordion, besides the usual core of guitars, bass, keyboards, mandolin, and drums. The opening number, "Hard Day on the Planet," replete with background singers, sounds like Wainwright's answer to the "We Are the World" anthems that popped up around the time of this album's release. Elsewhere he details the ups and downs of his life and relationships (a constant subject throughout his career). MORE LOVE SONGS introduced such Wainwright classics as "You Mother and I," "I Eat Out," and "Unhappy Anniversary."

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (6/03, p.137) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The ironic title conceals a typical Wainwright product: sardonic, self-deprecating, laced with acid social commentary....Wainwright fans who don't already own this album will want to grab it now..."
