Reviews & Opinions

DEANNE PEARSON, SMASH HITS, JUNE 12 - 25, 1980: Conversely now, someone who usually has no trouble producing chart tunes fails miserably on his latest E.P. Of the four tracks none stand out as remotely catchy or interesting. Bland, unadventurous and unmemorable all, their only saving grace is Costello's distinctive, plaintive vocals, particularly in the last track 'Just A Memory' a touching love 'n' regret song. A pity the words and the sentiment are let down by the music.

Additional Notes

'New Amsterdam' is from Get Happy!!, the B-Sides are new. 'Wednesday Week' was previously released on Armed Forces.
