Nick Lowe - The Abominable Showman (Reissue)

The Abominable Showman was recorded with Nick's post-Rockpile touring band, Noise To Go. Following the Rockpile blueprint, the band also featured a second lead vocalist in erstwhile Ace frontman Paul Carrack and had been featured on the Lowe-produced Carrack album Suburban Voodoo. This unit could play hard driving rock & roll and soulful pop music, all in evidence here from the opener “Raging Eyes,” to the full on pop-soul of “Time Wounds All Heels.” The band barnstormed the USA opening for the Cars and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, which yielded the bonus EP of live tracks from Cleveland’s Agora.
