CD of the Week from Nick Lowe
British vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Nick Lowe is a major figure in UK pub rock, power pop and New Wave in the 1970's. In recent years, his records have gone in a traditional and roots direction. His latest release is a Christmas album, titled Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family.
