More Love Songs, Wainwright’s 11th album, was made in London in 1986 under the production auspices of Richard Thompson. The ironic title conceals a typical Wainwright, product: sardonic, self-deprecating, laced with acid social commentary. This album contains two bonus tracks, complete lyrics, a sympathetic sleevenote and a number of photos taken during the singer’s sojourn in England. Wainwright fans who don’t already own this album will want to grab it now. And newcomers to his idiosyncratic art could do much worse than start here.
