THE WONDER STUFF / Never Loved Elvis (1991)

The ‘stuffies third album was the one that got them media attention in the UK, which surprised me.  It has some great pop songs that deserved to be hits but the record buying public don’t often embrace songs that that contain fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and accordion!  It’s a triumph for good songs from good songwriters.
In a similar way to how bourbon compliments the blues, half a dozen cold beers in a student bar increase my enjoyment of this one.
