Huey Lewis & the News: Picture This

Album Notes

Huey Lewis & The News: Huey Lewis (vocals); Chris Hayes (guitar, vocals); Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar, vocals); Sean Hopper (keyboards, vocals); Mario Cipollina (bass, vocals); Bill Gibson (drums, percussion, vocals).

Recorded at The Automatt, San Francisco, California.

Huey Lewis and the News sound considerably more focused on their second album, Picture This. By incorporating stronger elements of R&B and doo wop (their cover of "Buzz Buzz Buzz" is first-rate) and embracing pop to a much greater extent, the News find their own distinctive sound -- clean-cut, steady middle-class rock & roll. They still suffer from uneven material, but "Do You Believe in Love" is a stunner, a tight set of polished, anthemic hooks that is one of the best mainstream pop singles of the early '80s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
