The Producers - You Make The Heat - 1982

Last month I posted the first release from The Producers. My rips was quite flawed and I felt really bad about that. This rip of their second record is much better. The downside is that the record itself isn't quite as strong as the first LP. There are however still some excellent cuts. "She Sheila" is a catchy number and is considered by some to be one of their better numbers. I believe it appears on some power pop collections. To me it is a little reminiscent of "Kristina" by Rick Springfield. I know that may seem like a stretch, but I can't help it. That is what it reminds me of. "Operation" is another very Springfield-esque song. "Breakaway" delves into Police territory. That chinging Copeland symbol action and the vocals are very much like The Police. In fact I'm of the opinion that the deeper into the record you go the more you hear the police. Side 2 in particular has Sting, Andy and Stewart all over it. Check it out and see if I'm crazy.

I think I just fixed it. Give it a try. If it doesn't work, try downloading the zip of side 2.
