View from a fan

I seldom write reviews but as I heard this release was on it's way I was inspired to share thoughts on a really great record and an incredibly talented artist. The lyrics and music from Jude are something special. Amazing perspective on life - love -loss - humor from a Quad Cities guy. I met jude in Kansas City in 1990 and then again in Dallas in 1995; I thought as I watched his performance - edgy, quick, talented and inspiring. Buy and listen to all of his stuff and somewhere in all those great tunes there will be songs that will have you sitting back and saying "Yep,I can relate; smiling;; singing along or hitting replay...and then replay again.

Midwest I completely agree with yo on your view. Jude Cole needs to be more recognized by the public & anyone out there who knows ( or wants to know) what a real artist is all about. I'm so on board with all his fans. I am one. Been listening to his music for years. Never gets old!!

About Jude Cole

Jude Cole joined the British power pop band the Records in 1980, after their first album was released, and remained with the group for one album. After a few years, Cole then re-emerged with his own solo record, 1987's self-titled Jude Cole, which was a much slicker, mainstream-oriented affair than any of the Records' records. The album did have its charm, but it was unfortunately ignored. That was not the case with his second album, 1990's A View from 3rd Street, which had a bona fide hit single with the sweet, yearning "Baby, It's Tonight." Another single from the album hit the Top 40, as Cole enjoyed a surprise success. Although he wasn't able to repeat his success with the follow-up, it was another solid album of mainstream pop/rock, full of shiny hooks and sleek, memorable melodies. Cole later delved into production and other behind-the-scenes work, eventually opening the Ironworks label with actor Keifer Sutherland. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
