Rockpile - Seconds Of Pleasure Seconds Of Pleasure
Pop Used - LP JC 36886 Columbia
1980 Gatefold Original. β€œAt The Time Of Its Release In October Of 1980, Rockpile's Seconds Of Pleasure Was Viewed In Some Quarters As A Little Disappointing, Which Shows That There Are Considerable Pitfalls That Come With High Expectations. There Was A Reason Why The Album Was Highly Anticipated. During The Late '70s, Rockpile Was Considered One Of The Great Rock & Roll Bands, Earning A Reputation For Blowing Away Every Headlining Act They Played With, And They Were Just As Good On Record, Acting As The Backing Band For Solo Albums By The Group's Co-Leaders, Nick Lowe And Dave Edmunds. Although They Were A Strong Presence On The Road And On The Charts, They Had Yet To Release A Recording Underneath The Rockpile Name, So When Seconds Of Pleasure Finally Appeared, Fans And Critics Alike Expected A Rip-Roaring, Rampaging Rock & Roll Record, Since That's What Their Live Performances Were. What They Got Was A Bit Different -- It Was Still A Rock & Roll Record, But It Wasn't Down And Dirty; It Was Bright, Propulsive, And Poppy, Filled With Big Melodic Hooks And Polished Until It Glistened. Not What Was Expected Of Rockpile In 1980, Perhaps, But Time Has Been Nothing But Kind To This Record And, Judged On Its Own Merits, It's One Of Hell Of A Good Time.β€œ – S.T.
