When one of rock’s preeminent practitioners enlists two elite UK players, and cuts a few bass tracks himself – you’ve got a bona fide classic.

Call it Jesus of Cool in Old Blighty, and Pure Pop for Now People in the US -Nick Lowe’s 1978 solo bow is a masterful meld of songcraft and musicianship.  

Aside from Lowe, The Rumour’s Andrew Bodnar (“I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass”) and Ian Dury’s bravura Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy (“Nutted by Reality”) helm the low end with their signature virtuosity.
