The album holds other surprises for the longtime Prefab Sprout fan; for one thing, backing vocalist Wendy Smith is absent, having left the group after the birth of her first child, and for another, it’s a Western-themed concept album. Actually, though, this last shouldn’t be too surprising, as singer/songwriter Paddy McAloon has had a thing for the American West as far back as the 1984 single Don’t Sing, and has always shown a love of traditional country music, as on Prefab Sprout’s 1985 cover of Jim Reeves’ He’ll Have to Go. That said, this album owes more to Jim Webb than Jim Reeves
From Langley Park to Memphis is the third studio album by English pop band Prefab Sprout. It was released by Kitchenware Records on 14 March 1988. It peaked at number 5 on the UK Albums Chart, the highest position for any studio album released by the band. The album featured guest appearances from Stevie Wonder and Pete Townshend.
Gunman & Other Stories. As for the rest of "The Gunman and Other Stories," yeah, it's a "theme album. Yeah, nobody's done a theme album since Frank Sinatra dealt craps at the Sands in the '60's. Yeah, slavish devotion to the theme results in the cringe-inducing clunker track, "Wild Card in the Pack. And the title track goes on way too long.
The Gunman and Other Stories is the seventh studio album by the English pop band Prefab Sprout. Released in June 2001, the album was the band's only release for the EMI Liberty label. Following 1997 album Andromeda Heights and 1999 compilation 38 Carat Collection, Prefab Sprout conducted their first tour of the UK for 10 years. The success of the tour led singer and frontman Paddy McAloon to consider recording material for a new album.
Album by Prefab Sprout. Wild Card In The Pack. I'm A Troubled Man. The Streets Of Laredo, Not Long For This World. Love Will Find Someone For You. Cornfield Ablaze. MusicBrainz: The Gunman And Other Stories.
Veteran producer Tony Visconti is a master of balancing orchestral parts with a rock rhythm section, and so The Gunman and Other Stories is considerably less airy than Andromeda Heights, which is not to say that it rocks out or anything. The lush arrangements and just-so embellishments of strings and reeds recall the polite sterility of Visconti's '70s heyday, but as always, the melodic richness and evocative lyrics of McAloon's songs keep them from being boring, middle-of-the-road pop.
