B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 26 MARCH 2011

Nicknamed "The Basher," Nick Lowe, singer/songwriter and producer, was working on his second solo record, Labour of Lust, in 1979, simultaneously recording Dave Edmunds' excellent recording, Repeat When Necesssary. Of course, drummer Terry Williams and guitarist Billy Bremmer were featured on both (collectively, with Lowe and Edmunds, as Rockpile). In the same year, Lowe also produced the seminal Elvis Costello and The Attractions album, Armed Forces and The Pretenders' single, "Stop Your Sobbing," the Kinks cover. Heck, it was one busy year for Mr. Lowe, who also released one of his finest pop solo efforts, which is now reissued on CD by Yep Roc.
