Labour Of Lust
|Amazon Price||New from||Used from|
As the bassist and primary songwriter for Brinsley Schwarz, Nick Lowe was one of the catalysts of the pub rock phenomenon in the early 1970s. As the co-founder and house producer at Stiff Records, he would help create the blueprint for the modern indie rock label and usher in British punk and new wave, helming historic recordings for The Damned, Elvis Costello, and The Pretenders. Here, his landmark second solo album Labour of Lust gets the deluxe reissue treatment, sporting an expanded 12pg. booklet with period photos, new essays and artwork by groundbreaking graphic artist Barney Bubbles. The reissue also includes Nick's biggest US hit ''Cruel To Be Kind'', the originally U.K.-only ''Endless Grey Ribbon'' and U.S.-only ''American Squirm''; plus bonus B-side ''Basing Street.'' LOL is the only of Lowe's solo albums to hold the distinction of featuring Nick's Rockpile cohorts Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams on every track. Originally released in 1979 and out of print for nearly twenty years, the album has been remastered from the original source, reintroducing this masterpiece to a new generation of pop music obsessives.
The all time Lowe! I bought the LP in 1979 and picked up the remastered re-release in 2011. Thank you Yep Rock.
This album is like an old friend.

Thank you so much for such a pleasant transaction. It was a birthday gift and my friend was very surprised and has told me many times how much he enjoys listening to this CD.Published on October 11, 2011 by Wanda
While this release is under the auspices of Nick Lowe it is really the sound of a great rock/pop band (Rockpile) at the height of its powers. Read morePublished on August 13, 2011 by Barron W. Chandler Jr.
Okay I'll admit it. Having heard so much about Nick Lowe over the years I avoided his music mainly out of self conscience about being trendy. At least it seemed that way. Read morePublished on May 30, 2011 by Andre S. Grindle
