What can we say? These guys are one of our guiltiest pleasures from the early 80s – a sweet little new romantic group, with touches of the jazziness that was showing up in some of the post-punk Rough Trade groups of the time. Nik Heyward's on lead vocals, not nearly as cloying as he was in his solo work – and the tunes are a bit silly, but pretty darn catchy, and handled with a compressed 80s approach to pop that's kind of a major label take on the Postcard sound. Titles include "Snow Girl", "Love Plus One", "Lemon Firebrigade", "Favourite Shirts", "Milk Film", "Surprise Me Again", and "Fantastic Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence Clemons & The Red Bank Rockers —
Rescue ... LP CBS, 1983. Near Mint- ....
Always-great solo work from Mama Cass – an unbridled batch of pop tunes with a sweet and dreamy finish! The album's got a really wild approach – a sound that's even more baroque at times than that of The Mamas & The Papas, arranged and conducted by the great Jimmie Haskell. Titles include "Blow Me A Kiss", "Sour Grapes", "He's A Runner", "Lady Love", "Who's To Blame", "I Can Dream, Can't I", and "Welcome To The World". Great cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
