Ah, The Outfield (or as I like to call them: Boston Lite UK).. For all their success in the US during the mid-80’s, they were a bit of an odd duck: a London band that manages a couple of monster hits in the US while never once charting in the UK.
Personally I’m gonna blame that on their oh-so-very-States like sound, which sounded a bit like Boston slumming it or Asia actually kinda rocking (sans keyboards), depending on how kind you’d like to be, but make no mistake: I’ve got me a lot of fondness for their debut album, Play Deep. I was obsessing over the album all weekend, as I found a nearly perfect vinyl at my local used music joint (for $1.00! Sweet!), so of course I’m forced to share that obsession with you.
So while I figure out how to turn the song into an acoustic dirge, get some serious arena rock on with ‘Say It Isn’t So’…
And of course, you can’t have ‘Say It Isn’t So’ without ‘Your Love’, so hit the jump for more Outfield action
