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.

1983's Abominable Showman was recorded with his post-Rockpile touring band Noise to Go. Following the blueprint of Rockpile, the band also featured a second lead vocalist in erstwhile Ace frontman Paul Carrack and had been featured on the Lowe-produced Carrack album Suburban Voodoo (as well as on this album's duet "Wish You Were Here"). This unit could play hard driving rock & roll and soulful pop music, all in evidence here from the opener (and concert favorite) "Raging Eyes" to the full on pop-soul of "Time Wounds All Heels."

And the band barnstormed the USA opening for the likes of The Cars and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers which yields the reissue's bonus 45 of live tracks from Cleveland's Agora Theatre & Ballroom. The LP also comes with a digital download card.
