Remember when I mentioned a pile of reggae albums at Garnick’s? This is another little gem from those stacks. We still have about 20 albums left to pick up AND they’re getting a huge shipment soon too. I think I’m going to need a third job to keep up soon!

Sniff ‘n’ the Tears is a British rock band best known for their 1979 song “Driver’s Seat”, a hit in many countries (including No. 15 on the American Billboard Hot 100 chart). The exception was the UK itself where a problem with EMI’s pressing plant meant that the single was not available following the band’s appearance on Top of the Pops and it peaked just outside the Top 40.
Soul II Soul are a British musical group formed in London in 1988. They are best known for their 1989 UK chart-topper and US Top 5 hit, “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)”. They have been nominated for five Brit Awards – twice for Best British Group.

Back to the here and now, yeah
Show me how decide
What you want from me
Tell me, maybe I could be there for you
How ever do you want me
How ever do you need me
This was one of my dance party jams growing up! I used to get the lyrics from the title stuck in my head for days! Perhaps one of my first ear worms?

Squeeze formed in Deptford, London, in 1974, and first broke up in 1982. They then reformed in 1985, to disband again in 1999. The band reunited for tours through the U.S. and U.K. in 2007, and this touring version of Squeeze has continued.
In 2010, they issued Spot the Difference, an album of newly recorded versions of older material. Then, during their 2012 tour of the US, Squeeze made available for sale a 4-song CD of new demo recordings. Later in 2012, the band’s first new official studio recordings in 14 years were issued as the EP Packet Of Four.

Spandau Ballet are a British new wave band formed in London in the late 1970s. They were initially inspired by, and an integral part of, the New Romantic movement, becoming one of the most successful groups to emerge during the New Romantic era.
Their debut single “To Cut a Long Story Short”, which reached number five in the UK in 1980, was the first of ten occasions in the 1980s that the band reached the top ten of the UK Singles Chart. They had a UK number one single in 1983 with the song “True”. They also had four albums which reached the top ten of the UK albums chart between 1980 and 1990. The band split acrimoniously in 1990, but reunited in 2009.
