Classic Albums feat uring…
(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’
(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’
