A friend turned me onto this power pop gem and as a result, it's been in constant rotation for about a week now. After a little snooping around, it turns out this was on Jack Rabid's (Big Takeover) best records of the year as well as John Borack's best power pop records of all-time. This record is nothing short of a clinic in sheer pop velocity.
Here are a couple of quotes I found :
If The Red Button had been around in the '60's when I was producing I would have signed them to EMI. - Norman Smith Beatles engineer (1962-1966) and record producer (Pink Floyd/Pretty Things) for EMI Pop music the way God, Paul and John had intended. - John Borack - Goldmine Magazine
