2012's Classic Album Selection is a handsome, affordable box set containing paper-sleeve mini-LPs of 10cc's five most popular and best albums: The Original Soundtrack, How Dare You!, Deceptive Bends, Live and Let Live, and Bloody Tourists. This is an easy, convenient, and attractive way to get 10cc's best all at once.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their formation in Stockport in '72, we are very excited to officially announce the release of Tenology, a five disc box set by era - defining pop maestros 10cc. Curated by the four original members - Lol Creme, Kevin Godley, Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, 'Tenology' features four CDs (two discs of singles, one of selected album tracks, and a further one of B-sides and rarities) and a DVD (featuring all the groundbreaking promo videos and TV performances on Top Of The Pops, BBC In Concert, See You Sunday, Six Fifty Five Special and Pebble Mill).
Bloody Tourists was the sixth studio album by 10cc and the second to be produced following the band's 1976 split. It yielded the singles "Dreadlock Holiday", which reached No.1 in the UK in August 1978, and "Reds in My Bed", which did not chart.
10cc's third album, The Original Soundtrack, finally scored them a major hit in the United States, and rightly so; "I'm Not in Love" walked a fine line between self-pity and self-parody with its weepy tale of a boy who isn't in love (really!), and the marvelously lush production and breathy vocals allowed the tune to work beautifully either as a sly joke or at face value. …
The eighth studio album by 10cc, first issued in 1980 and a UK No.35 hit, gets a welcome overhaul courtesy of 7T's Records having been deleted for nearly a decade. Includes the singles "One-Two-Five" and "It Doesn't Matter At All". Also features two rare bonus tracks.
Long overdue CD reissue of the debut self titled album by 10cc which hit the British Top 40 when first released back in 1973. Includes the UK Number 1 hit single ‘Rubber Bullets’ plus the Top 10 ‘Donna’ and ‘The Dean And I’. It was recorded at Strawberry Studios in Stockport, which was part-owned by guitarist and engineer Eric Stewart, and released on Jonathan King's UK Records label.
10cc's Greatest Hits 1972-1978 was the first compilation by 10cc to include their recordings with UK Records and with Mercury. It was released in time for Christmas 1979 and was intended as a stop-gap between albums, whilst Eric Stewart recovered from his car accident. The album was a big success reaching No.5 in the UK charts.
Live and Let Live was 10cc's first live album, released in the Autumn of 1977. It was recorded at the Odeon Theatre in London between 18 and 20 June 1977 and the Apollo Theatre, Manchester between 16 and 17 July 1977. The album featured the new line-up of Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Rick Fenn, Paul Burgess and Stuart Tosh along with Tony O'Malley.
Look Hear? is the seventh studio album by 10cc, released in 1980. It reached No.35 in the UK and No.180 in the United States. The album, recorded at the band's Strawberry Studios South in Dorking, Surrey, was the first by 10cc since its 1976 split to include songs written by neither Graham Gouldman or Eric Stewart.
Deceptive Bends is the fifth studio album released in 1977 by rock band 10cc. When Kevin Godley and Lol Creme left 10cc in 1976 to pursue a solo career, many thought it was the death knell for the group. However, Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman kept the group alive as a duo (with the assistance of percussionist Paul Burgess) and turned in a surprisingly solid album with 1977's Deceptive Bends.
