Shades In Bed must rate as one of the greatest power pop records ever made. The Records first album is re-released here with additional tracks including the 45 version of "Starry Eyes" which was on the original US version of the album. Will Birch and John Wicks first meet in 1977 when John joined the Kursaal Flyers. With the demise of Kursaal's the two of them formed the basis of The Records and were joined by Huw Gower and Phil Brown in 1978. "Starry Eyes" their debut single became a pop classic and after a couple more singles the band produced Shades In Bed. One of the all time classic power pop albums.
