The performance was such a success that the band unanimously agreed to resume recording and touring as Squeeze. The new LP featured complex double-tracked keyboard parts which could not be duplicated by a LP keyboard player in LP live setting; hence, Jools' brother Christopher Holland, then aged 17, played and toured as a second keyboardist in Christopher had also played Hammond organ on the album's fourth single "Heartbreaking World", which was sung by Jools Holland.
However, Christopher Holland's tenure was short-lived, for he had signed to I. Records and was pursuing a solo career, so he was replaced by an official new member: Andy Metcalfe of The Soft Boys and The Egyptians.

However, Reprise dropped the band after this album. Paul Carrack also returned to the band inalthough by this point Squeeze was not so much a band as it was a trade name for Difford and Tilbrook plus sidemen. Squeeze's line-up during the mids changed constantly. Though not an official Squeeze member, Aimee Mann was featured on vocals and guitar at many Squeeze shows during Thomas also exited the band that year, and Carrack doubled on snare and keyboards for a few gigs before session drummer Andy Newmark was brought in.
Then—still in —Carrack left, which allowed keyboardist Andy Metcalfe to return to the band for a short spell, playing on some live dates. Drummer Kevin Wilkinson no relation to bassist Keithformerly of The Waterboys and China Crisiswas also added around this time, replacing Newmark. He lasted through the album Ridiculouswhich was recorded by the quartet of Difford, Tilbrook, Wilkinson and Wilkinson. In addition, a minimally remixed version of "This Summer" became a No. Following the release of RidiculousDon Snow now known as Jonn Savannah returned to Squeeze yet again as their touring keyboard player, but bythe Squeeze line-up had officially dwindled down to just Difford and Tilbrook.

Jeff Russo was a name unknown to me before Fargo, but the music in the show was so engaging I had to add it to my collection - when I saw it was available on vinyl, that was also a no-brainer.
Mine arrived in perfect condition, and, as a bonus, was the ice white vinyl despite being described as black. It sounds superb, is a lovely weighty record, and the packaging is brilliant too.
