Quiet Please: The New Best of Nick Lowe
Quiet Please: The New Best of Nick Lowe


Thirty-three-and-a-third years separate the first and last tracks of this swinging anthology - a third of a century no less, during which time Nick Lowe has evolved from earnest pub rocking prefect into groovy old boy with jazz quiff and relaxed vocal. Although he attends the occasional reunion, Lowe can no longer be found boogieing behind the bike sheds. Today, he resides in the uppermost reaches of the school's songwriter wing and shares the dorm with few. Starting with The Brinsley's version of Nick's classic (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding through to cuts from 2008s At My Age, this is the only Nick Best Of in the marketplace. Inevitably there will be some people's faves not present but we have decided to concentrate on songs that were written wholly or in part by Nick himself and left covers to perhaps another time. This set is compiled and produced by acknowledged expert Gregg Geller in coordination with Nick, Will Birch has supplied booklet notes along with a producer's note from Geller.
