LABOUR OF LUST RE-ISSUED AT LAST!

As the bassist and primary songwriter for Brinsley Schwarz, Nick Lowe was one of the catalysts of the pub rock phenomenon in the early 1970s. As the co-founder and house producer at Stiff Records, he would help create the blueprint for the modern indie rock label and usher in British punk and new wave, helming historic recordings for The Damned, Elvis Costello, and The Pretenders. Here, his landmark second solo album Labour of Lust gets the deluxe reissue treatment, sporting an expanded 12pg. booklet with period photos, new essays and artwork by groundbreaking graphic artist Barney Bubbles.

The reissue also includes Nick’s biggest US hit “Cruel To Be Kind,” the originally U.K.-only “Endless Grey Ribbon” and U.S.-only “American Squirm” plus bonus B-side “Basing Street.” LOL is the only of Lowe’s solo albums to hold the distinction of featuring Nick’s Rockpile cohorts Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams on every track. Originally released in 1979 and out of print for nearly twenty years, the album has been remastered from the original source, reintroducing this masterpiece to a new generation of pop music obsessives.

WHAT MAKES THIS LABOUR OF LUST RE-ISSUE SO SPECIAL?:
* Labour of Lust LP is now in print for the first time in over 30 years with the CD returning after a 20-year hiatus!

* Tracklist combines songs from US and UK versions plus a bonus track “Basing Street” for a 13-track release over the original 11!

* CD package features 12-page booklet of notes, essays, credits, and rare shots with the LP inner sleeve including the same content!
