Simply Red ‎– Picture Book (1985)

Picture Book is the 1985 debut album by Mancunian sextet Simply Red. Arresting listeners with the shivery strings and haunting introspection of “Holding Back the Years,” the album reveals a band broadly adept with the 20th century musical lexicon — from the ritzy trumpet-romp “Look at You Now” to the lonely late-night bass-walk “Sad Old Red.” The emotive reaches and richly harmonized bridges of “Jericho,” the Chic-like precision of “Money’s Too Tight (to Mention),” and the stand-still, call-and-response of the title-track provide further highlights.
