Nick Lowe And His Cowboy Outfit

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Nick Lowe And His Cowboy Outfit
Used - LP - FC 39371
1984 US Original With The Custom Printed Inner Sleeve. Glossy Vinyl, VG++ Jacket. Gold Promo Stamp On Rear Cover. "The Title Isn't Entirely In Jest -- Nick Lowe And His Cowboy Outfit Does Represent Lowe's Reinvention As A Roots-Rocker, As He Delves Into Tex-Mex, Country-Rock, Garage Rock And, Of Course, Pop. After The Muddled The Abominable Showman, Cowboy Outfit Sounds Positively Vibrant, Thanks In No Small Part To Lowe's Backing Band, Comprised Largely Of Veteran Pub-Rockers. The Songs Are Also More Consistently Memorable, From The Farfisa-Driven "Half A Boy And Half A Man" To The Sublime Covers Of Mickey Jupp's "You'll Never Get Me Up In One Of Those" And Sandie Shaw's "Breakaway." The Rest Of The Album's Pleasures, However, Are Subtle. "Maureen" And "God's Gift To Women" Are Charming Yet Slight, And The Songs Become Increasingly Lightweight As The Album Approaches Its Close. Even With The Uneven Songs, The Cowboy Outfit Make The Material Appealing, And Lowe Certainly Sounds More Appealing -- And Comfortable -- As A Roots-rocker Than As An Aging New Wave Popster." AMG - Stephen Thomas Erlewine. more
Rose Of England
Used - LP - FC 39958
1985 Original US Pitman Pressing, With Custom Inner Sleeve & Still In Shrink. 1A/1B Stampers. Beautiful NM- Condition. "Following Through On The Roots-Rock Leanings Of Cowboy Outfit, Nick Lowe Delivered The Delightful The Rose Of England. While Some Of The Material Is Still Rather Lightweight -- "Lucky Dog" And "Bo Bo Skediddle" Are Defiant And Thoroughly Entertaining Throwaways -- Much Of The Record Is Clever And Charming, Delivered With Laidback Confidence From The Cowboy Outfit. "Darlin' Angel Eyes" And "The Rose Of England" Are Minor Classics In The Lowe Canon, While His Cover Of John Hiatt's "She Don't Love Nobody" And The Revival Of The Rockabilly Standard "7 Nights To Rock" Keep The Album Moving. Still, It's His Stark Take On Elvis Costello's Lovely "Indoor Fireworks" That Gives The Album An Anchor, And It's A Performance So Affecting That It Makes The Neutered Reworking Of "I Knew The Bride" Completely Forgivable."
