Yep Roc Records will reissue six classic yet long unavailable Nick Lowe albums, fulfilling a longstanding goal of bringing the entire catalog of one of its flagship artists back into print and available on one label. The albums – Nick the Knife, The Abominable Showman, Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit, The Rose of England, Pinker and Prouder Than Previous, and Party of One – span the years 1982 to 1990, and represent a crucial bridge from Lowe's trailblazing 1970s work to the "remarkable second wind" (New York Times) and widespread critical acclaim that have characterized his more recent releases.

While Cowboy Outfit has a slightly different meaning as UK Slang, Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit marks a turn towards a more rootsy persona for the revered singer/songwriter. Anchored by the international number one "Half a Boy and Half a Man," the album introduces a Tex-Mex/roller-rink organ sound, although the lineup of Bobby Irwin, Paul Carrack, Martin Belmont and Lowe is essentially unchanged.

Newly discovered Johnny Horton covers "Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor" and "Walk on By" (included here as bonus tracks on an accompanying 45) show that there may have been a more twangy intention to the record - but as it is full on rockers like "Maureen" and Mickey Jupp's "You'll Never Get Me Up (in One of Those)" rub shoulders with pop like Dusty Springfield's "Breakaway" and Nick's own "L.A.F.S." (featuring the TKO Horns who had recently punched up arranger Elvis Costello's own "Everyday I Write the Book").
