Of Prefab Sprout’s nine-album discography, From Langley Park to Memphis remains to be the epitome of the band’s sophisticated music.
Prefab Sprout arrived in 1988 with two highly acclaimed albums already behind them. With their latest release, 'From Langley Park to Memphis' set to release in March, the band was anxious and in high hopes that the new record could fulfill the sonic aftermath left by the magnificent sophisti-pop odyssey that is 'Steve McQueen'. Thankfully, in my eyes and in the eyes of many others, it succeeded in this feat and then some
From Langley Park to Memphis included guest appearances from Stevie Wonder and Pete Townshend. In 1990, Jordan: The Comeback, again produced by Thomas Dolby, was nominated for a BRIT Award. Crimson/Red also confirmed that Prefab Sprout was now in effect a solo project, with Paddy McAloon singing, playing and programming all of the music on the album on his own. In interviews at the time, McAloon explained that his health issues (in particular, the deterioration of his hearing and eyesight) now dictated the way in which Prefab Sprout music was recorded, making it impractical and even impossible for any other musicians to be involved, but that he remained fond of and grateful to his former bandmates

From Langley Park to Memp. has been added to your Cart. But one listen to Langly Park to Memphis makes their place near the top of the list undeniable. Paddy McCloon introduced us to his band with the far more anoluge sounding Swoon. Right away it was evident he had mocho Mozart Melodic abilities. But soon, he started using these with then new digital production. Langly Park is one of the few albums I know where the sheen actually adds to the music. Music heads will love deconstructing this album for its amazing technique, and there is much to be learned and apprciated here. But listen to and feel this music first. It brings tears to the eyes-happy ones.
success of Prefab Sprout’s second album, Steve McQueen/Two Wheels Good, Sprout leader Paddy McAloon recorded a similar-sounding follow-up, Protest Songs, and shelved it in favor of this more ambitious collection that, as its title implies, takes McAloon from England into the heart of America. The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the band’s biggest hit, tells the tale of a one-hit wonder stuck performing a novelty hit for his supper. Cars and Girls nods to Bruce Springsteen before admitting there’s more pain to life than what happens behind the wheel
