The Brits had their shot at 80's rock in the form of The Outfield, consisting of guitarist John Spinks, lead vocalist and bassist Tony Lewis, and drummer Alan Jackman. And with producer Rick Chertoff at the helm, he worked similar magic that he did on Cyndi Lauper's landmark She's So Unusual and The Hooters' Nervous Night.
The first single, "Say It Isn't So", demonstrates the sound, John Spinks's guitar, which at times sounds like the Edge's, harmony vocals by Lewis and Spinks, and a catchy rhythm guitar that occasionally reminds me of the Police. It's a wonder why this song didn't make it on the charts. The hooks are worthwhile and that feeling of being dazed by some kind of girl works: "I'm staring into a space that was filled by your face" and "I'm walking in the midnight sun once again"
Then comes "Your Love", a well-deserved Top Ten hit, which contains that memorable first line: "Josie's on a vacation far away..." Keeping an illicit affair going makes for the synonymous use of "lose" and "use", as in "I don't wanna lose your love tonight." The video for this song incorporated the painting of the album cover art.
"I Don't Need Her" starts with that churning Edge-like guitar before telling of conflicting love. "I'm so glad I don't need her" he says, but then, it comes down to "But in the end I just can't leave her/Can't leave her tonight."
The last single, "Everytime You Cry", is a swaying hold-those-lighter ballads, and one of my favourites on this album. A bittersweet ballad: "When you say goodbye, I die just a little bit-cry just a little bit more."
"61 Seconds" seems to be on one hand the numbing sensation of being the clockwork 9 to 5 man and how the scheduled and timely office world is defined by numbers, in this case the hands on a clock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat little package.. Dec 1 2006
Format:Audio CD
of mid 80's guitar rock, with a lead singer kinda reminisent of early Sting with the Police (think Zenyatta Mondatta era). Although the guy kinda plays around with the same chords on a couple of the tunes, this album really doesn't have a bad song on it. First tune I heard of theirs was "All the love in the world" which just kinda grabbed me , as the guitars just sounded so damn good and upfront in their music. I can still put this on 20 years later and enjoy it. If you a guitar player who grew up in that era, and if you can play at all, you can hit the main solo parts and progressions. Just plain good, and sounds great turned up.

I had to buy this cassette three times, as someone relieved me of the first two, was very popular with teens who didn't like new wave or metal and it made me follow the band for at least 3 more records.

Those were the days. :-)

The legendary producer/musician/writer William Wittman produced the Outfield, who also produced an album for The Fixx in the same era, played bass and produced the alternative band Too Much Joy (now morphed into The Its), co-produced & co-wrote the Indie hit "Shine" with Cyndi Lauper in 2003 -- and engineered and played bass on her current work, "At Last." Hope that clears up the confusion....and gives credit where it's due.
