Essential 10cc / 3CD set

Generous 3CD set at a great price

Essential 10cc / 3CD set

UMC will issue Essential 10cc on their budget Spectrum Music imprint next month. The three-CD set brings together an impression 54 tracks.

10cc scored 11 top ten UK hits in the 1970s and the creative force of the band was famously driven by two internal writing teams: the ‘arty’ and experimental Kevin Godley & Lol Creme and the more poppy and commercial Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart.

Godley and Creme left in 1976 and enjoyed further success as a duo and notably went on to forge a very successful career as promo video directors. Stewart and Gouldman continued, until 1983’s Windows in the Jungle album after which there was something of a hiatus.

There was a brief, but unsuccessful, reunion with Godley and Creme in 1992 (the ...Meanwhile album). That pair didn’t return for the final album, 1995’s Mirror Mirror, which in truth was more like an uneasy fusion of Gouldman and Stewart solo albums.

Essential 10cc will be released on 5 February 2021. The UK price is likely to drop to the usual £5 mark, before release. See the full track listing, below.
