Clas­sic Al­bums feat ur­ing…

Martin Cham­bers

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

1 pre­tenders

(1980) pre­tenders A clas­sic straight out of the gate, packed with catchy hooks and burst­ing with en­ergy from the fiery ‘Pre­cious’, to riff-pow­ered rocker ‘The Wait’. So many of the band’s clas­sic cuts are here – ‘Kid’, ‘Brass In Pocket’ and ‘Stop Your Sob­bing’.

Key Track: ‘Tat­tooed Love Boys’

2 pre­tenders II

(1981) pre­tenders Plenty of great songs on the Pre­tenders’ sec­ond al­bum, in­clud­ing ‘Bad Boys Get Spanked’, the glam-rock beat of ‘Mes­sage Of Love’, hit sin­gle ‘Talk Of The Town’ and the beau­ti­ful ‘I Go To Sleep’. Cham­bers’ play­ing is right on the money.

Key Track: ‘Talk Of The Town’

3 Hon­est

(1991) the spir­i­tual cow­boys Com­ing on like a more rock’n’roll Leonard Co­hen, Dave Ste­wart & The Spir­i­tual Cow­boys’ al­bum is quirky, off-kil­ter pop. Not a drum-heavy record for Martin, it none­the­less ben­e­fits from his pop sen­si­bil­ity and great touch.

Key Track: ‘Jack Talk­ing’
