Just listened to this album for the first time in a while yesterday and it still puts a smile on my face. Always wondered how the single Slipping Away would have turned out if Jeff had kept it for Secret Messages or for himself. I went on to get ‘Riff Raff’, ‘I Hear You Rockin’, (Live), ‘Closer To The Flame’, and ‘Unplugged’ by Dave and also Rockpile’s ‘Seconds of Pleasure’ (Edmunds, Nick Lowe et al) - all thanks to my ELO fandom I was introduced to some more cool music.
I always wondered, if Jeff recorded a version of "slipping away" with his own vocals...it would have fit on secret messages for sure, as it has the same sound...and i have no idea, why Jeff didn't do any background vocals on the tracks, he produced for Dave! denny: If you enjoyed that Dave Edmunds albums, do yourself a favour and listen to his other albums as well...
Sorry, the name of the one particular album was ‘Plugged In’ as it looks like Dave was taking the p*** on the trend of alll the unplugged and acoustic albums that everyone seemed to be putting out during that era.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
