Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Lloyd Cole (vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards, harmonica); Matthew Sweet (vocals, bass); Fred Maher (guitar, drums); Robert Quine, Jack Johnson (guitar); Blair Cowan (accordion, piano, organ); Leland Sklar (bass); Carlos Vega (drums); Bashiri Johnson (percussion); Beti (background vocals).
  • Producers: Lloyd Cole, Fred Maher, Paul Hardiman.
  • 1991's DON'T GET WEIRD ON ME, BABE (the title comes from a Raymond Carver short story), the most idiosyncratic album of Lloyd Cole's career, is about four or five years ahead of its time. Side One (in the US--the sides were reversed in the rest of the world) is of a piece with 1990's LLOYD COLE and 1988's MAINSTREAM: sturdy, mature, occasionally dark singer-songwriter pop, with the single "She's a Girl and I'm a Man" the highlight.
  • Side Two is something else entirely. Backed by a full orchestra conducted by Elton John associate Paul Buckmaster, Cole spins half a dozen exceptional pop songs, as melodic as Petula Clark, as adult as Frank Sinatra. The rapturous "Butterfly," and the haunting "Margo's Waltz," are among Cole's finest work ever, and the sheer audacity of the orchestral backing--there's no typically rock instrumentation at all--is brilliant, especially coming as it did at the dawn of grunge.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (2/6/92, p.81) - 3 Stars - Good - "...shades of Procol Harum keyboards, blues-rock guitar riffs and Cole's jaunty baritone..."

Spin (10/91) - Highly Recommended
