Paul Heaton / Jacqueline Abbott WISDOM LAUGHTER & LINES Vinyl Record

Paul Heaton / Jacqueline Abbott WISDOM LAUGHTER & LINES Vinyl Record
Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album from Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott. This record is the second from Paul and Jacqui following the critically acclaimed What Have We Become, which saw them return together on record for the first time since the days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of critically-acclaimed records. Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humor, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain. Both are clearly delighted to be working together again on this new record as they explain: Paul Heaton: "Jacqui is one of the best singers I've worked with and is also part of my past. This new album came together easily because we work so well together. The album title 'Wisdom, Laughter and Lines' derives from a line in one of the songs and it sort of sums up where I am in life." Jacqui Abbott: "It's just great to be singing again and I'm excited about playing these new songs live. We had such a good run together previously and it's just a real pleasure to be working with him again and singing these fantastic songs".
