Squeeze: East Side Story

I bought this record today for the princely sum of 50 pence, from a charity shop in a small Lancashire village by the name of Ramsbottom (don't ask...) - I picked up a few other records too, but we might get to those another day...

But anyhoo, 50p for a fine album such as this one is the bargain of the day by my reckoning.

"East Side Story" was released in 1981 (and co-produced by a certain Elvis Costello, no less) and as Squeeze albums go, it's one of the best. Opening track "In Quintessence" is a corker, and the quality remains high throughout - 14 tracks, all excellent - this is what pop music should sound like.

Here's one of the album's highlights for your listening pleasure:
