Seconds of Pleasure (2004)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Apr 27, 2004; Lead Performance: Rockpile; Genre: Reissues

Featuring frequent collaborators Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner, and Terry Williams, this underappreciated 1980 album ranks with Lowe and Edmunds' other great work of the time (most of which boasted the same lineup). Edmunds' exuberant take on pre-Beatles rock sits nicely next to Lowe's charming late-'70s-style pub pop; and well-chosen covers of songs by Chuck Berry, Joe Tex, Gene Chandler, and others round out classic originals like ''When I Write the Book.''
