Huey Lewis and The News, Fore! (1986)
Reviewing the deluxe edition 30th Anniversary double-disc of Sports got me thinking back to this album; actually the first by Huey Lewis & The News that I heard. And this record was huge! There was impact from the Back To The Future soundtrack – and that was probably (easily) my favourite film at that time. So my mum bought the new Huey album – she bought a record every week. One record. Once a week. It was a cool way to learn about music – pop albums of the time and old favourites. And I still have the copy of this that my mum bought from the EMI store in Napier back in ’86. We played this album a lot. I’m probably not going to listen to it again anytime soon. I like the idea that it’s a rather fabulous record. Actually listening to it could blow that idea. Right?
