Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the 1988 debut album from the British Rock/Soul outfit. This double disc edition includes many non-album b-sides, live tracks and 12'' mixes added as bonus tracks. Roachford remains one of the few acts to successfully blend Rock and Soul music in a manner that appealed to music lovers in both camps. While many musicians of the late '80s were committing themselves to a groove and sound that became known as Streetsoul, Andrew Roachford marched to an altogether different tempo, one that called upon a far greater and diverse range of influences and inspirations. Edsel. 2012.

Format: Audio CD
It's very seldom that I come across an album that just doesn't ring a bell to me at all. Having absolutely no name recognition with multi instrumentalist singer/songwriter Andrew Roachford I didn't have any idea what to expect from this at all. When this album dropped in 1988 it was a time when most R&B artists were based in some variation synth funk or new jack swing/hip-hop based styles and it seemed that only people such as Anita Baker or Englands Fine Young Cannibals and Terence Trent D'Arby were offering much in the way of an alternative. What Roachford offered here,the name refering to a trio headed by the man himself was as an active participant in this musical reaction against the R&B sounds of it's era. And one of the things he got right about this album was the most important thing:the production. While this album is based very squarely in traditional R&B song structures featuring some slippery guitar/bass riffing and blues harp solos he also borrows freely from production elements of the period such as echo and reverb. In particular on this front is the song "Kathleen" with it's stop/start midtempo rhythm and jazzy chord changes. Same goes for the more uptempo closer "Nobody But You" but one might also be surprised at something else about this album. As bands such as Living Color and Mother's Finest continued to mine the whole "black rock" ethic it's interesting to find no funk/metal hybrids on this album but instead vibrant rave ups such as "Give It Up","Family Man",No Way" and "Shotgun (Crazy World We Live In)",all songs that feature a rolling shuffling beat and plenty of guitar riffing but are actually mainstream late 80's pop/rock aside from the bluster implied.Read more ›

Andrew Roachford is very talented. I first purchased this record on cassette back in the 90's and had lost it somewhere along the way. I can't express my excitement enough to find that it was available on CD. If you like rockin' soul, this is a perfect CD for you.

I bought this album on tape when it first came out and I eventually wore it out. I was really happy to find it on CD. I forgot how good the songs were. The man knows how to write a song. It's an upbeat album and you'll like it.
