TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Laid’ – Pop Masterpiece By JAMES Is 25…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Laid’ by JAMES
Released: 27 September 1993 – 25 years ago

BBC MUSIC wrote: “It may be hard to believe, but once upon a time, back in the pre-Britpop era of the early 90s, James were one of the biggest groups in the UK… A warm, subtle album in tone, songs like Out to Get You, One of the Three and Lullaby might be seen as forerunners of Snow Patrol’s more-measured, less-grating fare… The cover may make your eyes bleed – the band in dresses, eating bananas – but the contents of Laid comprise what is probably James’ real masterpiece.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: I’m still wondering why these colorful and sprightly popsmiths didn’t become global stars.

THREE TOP TRACKS: Laid / Out To Get You / Sometimes

* LAID – If that doesn’t make you happy then I don’t know what will do the trick …

* OUT TO GET YOU – goosebumps beauty…

* SOMETIMES“Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul”
