Café Jacques ‎– International (1978)

International is the second of two albums by Scottish art-pop/soul trio Café Jacques, released in 1978 on Epic/Columbia and produced by Rupert Hine. The album features nine collectively-penned originals in addition to a cover of the 1933 Harry Warren/Al Dubin chestnut “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” The original European release closes with the lengthy “Medley” while the re-sequenced U.S. issue replaces that track with the shorter “International.”

Musically, the album resembles Hine’s recent output with Quantum Jump and his upcoming production work for Camel on I Can See Your House From Here. Multi-instrumentalist Geoffrey Richardson and Genesis drummer/vocalist Phil Collins reprise their guest roles from the prior album Round the Back.
