Is this Love

Is this Love?
Well yes it is actually.
Love is the 3rd album from 1987 on the Sire label from East Kilbride's finest Aztec Camera.

Well when I say Aztec Camera it is actually  the boy wonder Roddy Frame with a group of session musicians. It includes  a few songs with an R&B influence in an (unsuccessful) attempt to break the US market.It did however reach number 10 in the UK.

Now it may not be their best album - that would be High Land Hard Rain - but it does contain three of their best songs..

Killermount Street - have you ever heard a more achingly  beautiful song about a bus station?

Aztec Camera - How Men Are

Aztec Camera - Somewhere in my Heart

Aztec Camera - Killermont Street


  1. I always find people get a bit sniffy about this album, but I love it.

  2. It is an album made up of some very fine songs and some better than average ones mired in a mid 80s mid atlantic production

  3. I really like How Men Are. Drew is right about the production on Love though, it is just a step to far for the really great songs included on the album.

  4. Track 2 is the same file as track 1?

    I mean, 'How Men Are' is a fine song, but I'd prefer to hear 'Somewhere In My Heart'...
