Editorial Reviews

It's 1973 in South London. Teenage friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook form the band that will see them dubbed The New Lennon and McCartney. Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact and as vital as it has ever been, Squeeze are still touring and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the UK & US music scene.
As befits one of the UK s much-loved acts, there is no end of Squeeze fans currently wearing their influences firmly on their sleeve, whether it be Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Supergrass, Lily Allen, The Feeling or Razorlight. With their fingerprints keenly felt throughout the fabric of popular music, it is only right that these songs, with their evergreen and popular sound, continue to be played and enjoyed live. And so since 2007, a newly reformed Squeeze have been slowly finding time to play a series of gigs and festival dates, preferring to reaffirm their abilities as a band rather than follow some of their peers who have come out in a blaze of publicity, only to be met with disappointment. The new Squeeze line-up, their most able yet, is completed by Squeeze veteran John Bentley and Tilbrook's Fluffers cohorts Simon Hanson and Stephen Large.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Wish Them Well... August 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Indeed, this WAS done in order for Difford and Tilbrook to profit from their great songs. Having signed away way too much of their rights to their original recordings, they've sadly made nothing from greatest hits packages like "Singles--45s and Under" that so many people have bought. That travesty really leaves them little choice, so I wish them well with this effort. As a drummer, though, I still feel Gilson's absence in everything that they've put out since '91. Simon Hanson tries harder than ever here to copy the big man's licks, but I don't know if anyone can do that to my liking. Maybe I'll listen to it on a bigger stereo with a nice subwoofer to see if that helps, but for me Gilson's snappy and smart style was a big part of what made them great and if he's not here for this task then it will always be impossible to pull off completely. I saw Squeeze a few weeks ago and the practice that they went through for this CD definitely showed...they were really tight, and really good, with Simon and everyone playing well and Glenn's voice virtually the same as 30 years ago. Glenn's a tad raspier in places on this CD perhaps, but if you've never heard the original recordings you surely wouldn't know. Buy it for a youngster and show them how the great ones did/do it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Youth Rediscovered August 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Yes, new material will be great when it comes, but with their musical creativity never in question, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook had two aims with this brilliant idea. Firstly, to "own" a piece of the many musical gems they have created. They admit to this. Secondly, to prove that they still have all of the technical talent and physical ability to sing, play, and produce a record exactly as they did in their youth on the major record labels. I've always wanted to see if a musical artist could pull something like this off. These aren't just alternate takes from the same day, studio, and producer. These are self-produced versions decades removed from the originals, but so faithful to the originals it scares me. I'm sure it was a painstaking process.
Imagine the Beatles if they were all still with us, going into a studio and attempting to record "A Hard Day's Night" again in 1994 and making it sound like the 1964 original. The result would be quite interesting. How about Rembrandt duplicating one of his early masterpiece paintings thirty years later? Both paintings would still be almost priceless today.
Squeeze fans will think Gilson Lavis is providing the beat on "Another Nail in My Heart", and Jools Holland is doing the piano solo on "Pulling Mussels From the Shell". Difford & Tilbrook surprisingly sound 21 years old on "Cool for Cats" and "Up the Junction" respectively.
Now let's have fun spotting some of those tiny differences. The biggest is that Tilbrook does the lead vocal on "Loving You Tonight", achieving something he could never do on "Tempted": He sings the song every bit as good as (and maybe better than) Paul Carrack. Carrack guests on "Tempted" and sings it straight, but some slight phrasing differences are revealed. In the chorus of "Another Nail...

5.0 out of 5 stars Squeeze - Spot the Difference August 4, 2010
By rhussey
Format:Audio CD
The new recordings prove again that Squeeze songs stand the test of time. The songs sound great and Tilbrook and Difford still sound almost exactly like they did in 1980. One of the best things about this release is having some of their greatest hits recorded with the same players and then mixed/mastered at levels similar to other stuff on my ipod. My only gripe is that some of my favorites ("If I Didn't Love You") were not included. I have always liked Glenn Tilbrook's vocals on "Tempted" as much as Carrack's and wouldn't have minded a good studio recording with his lead but I like the nice change on "Loving You Tonight" just as well. Overall I would highly recommend this album and I can't wait for the next one with all new originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically Perfect In Every Way March 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Squeeze has occupied an off-and-on place in my affections for over 30 years. My parents came back to LA from a trip to England with "Cool for Cats" in the late Seventies and, though it was a little too syntho-pop for me, I couldn't stop playing "Up the Junction," which seemed like a great song to me then (and now). I was working at a record store when "Argybargy" came out, and I played the first side over and over in the store until everyone had to either admit it was a great record or that they wanted to strangle me. By "East Side Story," Squeeze were no longer my little secret.

I kind of lost track of them after that version of the band broke up, but bought "Babylon and On" on a hunch when it first came out some years later and loved it. That was the last new music I heard from Squeeze for awhile (over 20 years!) until I was trolling around Youtube a couple of weeks ago and found "Some Fantastic Place" which struck me, somewhat unbelievably, as the best song of theirs I'd ever heard. Clearly, I had some catching up to do.

I immediately looked for a greatest hits package that spanned their whole career and came across the curious case of "Spot the Difference." Having inadvertently bought disappointing re-recorded best hits packages in the past, I was skeptical. But the first clip I listened to was the great guitar solo from "Another Nail in My Heart," and I was stunned. It was practically perfect in every way - Glenn Tilbrook is the Mary Poppins of Rock and Roll! Needless to say I immediately ordered the CD.

Having listened to the record several times now, it is really amazing how good it is. Sure, there are some differences, but really, I have absolutely no regrets that I bought these versions of the songs rather than the originals.
