Dave Edmunds – Tracks on Wax 4 (Swan Song SSK 59407) (1978)

I adore early Nick Lowe solo records, most of which feature Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremmer and Terry Williams, as well as the Rockpile Lp, Seconds of Pleasure, which is that group as a nominal band.  So when Edmunds’ awkwardly titled Tracks On Wax 4 (the first DE solo record with all the above players) presented itself at Delmelza House recently, I snapped it up pronto despite the facts that his contributions to Seconds are my least favourite and a little of his braying style of vox goes a long way.  Still, this fourth Dave Edmunds studio album is a Rockpile album in all but name and therefore, if not quite as, nifty.

Does anyone else think it’s odd that Edmunds was on Led Zeppelin’s vanity lable, Swan Song?

  1. Thank you to Ekolad for several cups of tea during my Brissle stopover and for a vinyl copy of DE’s Repeat When Necessary (which I think is better TOW4), thus completing a quartet of Rockpile albums which also include Nick Lowe’s brilliant Labour of Lust. Officially, I should get Edmunds’ Twangin’ Lp, which features outtakes from the first two solo albums featuring Rockpile, though my guess is that it’s going to be hard to come by in the thrift stores.

  2. […] I have the very same recording with Dave Edmunds lead vox wiping the composer’s on Tracks On Wax; leaving the Kiss-like “Music For Money” and the gorgeous beat pop ballad […]
