Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Cut in Venice, Italy with producer Stewart Levine, STARS shows Simply Red moving confidently into the 1990s with one of its best-ever albums. Britain's top blue-eyed soul band connects with ten strong originals including “Something Got Me Started,” “Your Mirror” and the title track – all singles in the band's native England, driving the collection to multi-platinum status (it remains one of the best-selling albums of all time in the U.K.). The Expanded Edition of STARS features nine bonus tracks including live recordings and some surprisingly effective Robert Johnson covers. In honor of Simply Red frontman Mick Hucknall's birthday, we'll give this outstanding album another spin today.
