For the 20th anniversary of Nick Lowe's The Convincer, the album has been remastered from the original tapes and being reissued on blue vinyl with bonus 45 single.
Nick Lowe's 2001 album The Convincer established him as an elder statesman of rock and roll. The album arrived in a different world than the day before, releasing on September 11, 2001. These were songs for troubled times ("I'm A Mess," "Lately I've Let Things Slide") and Nick's songwriting was never sharper. The bonus 45 single includes three bonus tracks: a long-lost Lowe-original called “Different Kind Of Blue,” an acoustic cover of The Shirelles' “Mama Said,” and a stripped-back rendition of The Chi-lites' “There Will Never Be Any Peace (Until God Is Seated At The Conference Table).”
