Product Description:

10cc: Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Lol Creme, Kevin Godley (vocals, various instruments).
Recorded in 1972. Originally released on UK (53105). Includes liner notes by Michael Heatley.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
The first release by this Manchester quartet, recorded for novelty-minded pop eccentric Jonathan King's UK label, is a brilliant debut. Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme, all of whom sing and write, are smart-alecks of the first order, and nearly every track on this album is a near-perfect example of pop pastiche.
The mini-operetta opener, "Rubber Bullets," updates "Jailhouse Rock" for a more cynical age, while the dead-on '50s-pop parody "Donna" was straight-faced enough to become a Number One British single. The other eight tracks include the sly schoolyard romp "The Dean and I" and the mock-serious "Speed Kills." "Ships Don't Disappear (Do They?)" foreshadows the atmospheric art pop of their later, better-known albums, but most of 10CC is sharp satire disguised as bubblegum chart-pop. Amazingly, this artful deception works brilliantly on both levels.
