Windows in the Jungle is the ninth studio album by British rock band 10cc. It was released in October 1983 and was the last album by the band for nine years, as well as their final album for Mercury Records and the final album to feature the lineup formed during the making of Look Hear?. Paul Burgess and Rick Fenn would join Gouldman's version of the band.
2016 three CD collection. 10cc's witty and satiric brand of tongue-in-cheek art pop sustained their reputation for being poignant songwriters for the entirety of their existence. They have notched up over 15 million album sales in the UK and frontman Graham Gouldman has been the recipient of three Ivor Novello Awards for achievements in songwriting. This collection features two #1 hits and a selection of prime cuts taken from across a very strong back catalog and features rare live versions of some of the band's most well-known tracks.
The time for a 10cc live album would have been as they toured The Original Soundtrack with one of the most adventurous – not to mention musically extravagant – shows of the age. Instead, they waited two more years, until the newly reduced Eric Stewart/Graham Gouldman-led lineup headed out to promote the first LP since the split, Deceptive Bends, buoyed by the fact that the hits just kept on coming…
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of smash hit I'm Not in Love, the original members of 10cc - Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme - reunite to tell their story. The documentary shares the secrets to some of their most successful records, from the writing and the recording to the tours and the tensions. With contributions from an impressive array of music industry legends including 10cc's band manager Harvey Lisberg, lyricist Sir Tim Rice, broadcaster Paul Gambaccini, legendary producer Trevor Horn, Stewart Copeland (the Police), Graham Nash (the Hollies) and Dan Gillespie Sells (the Feeling), not only does this film highlight the diversity of these four brilliant musicians' songwriting talent, but it also delves into the influence they had, as well as the politics beneath their acrimonious split in 1976, at the height of their fame.
Excellent addition to any rock music collection.
This was the first album released by the band after the departure of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. Many wondered at the time if the remaining half, Gouldman/Stewart, could pull off a decent album or would it be a let down. When it came out I rushed out to buy it, hoping it would be pretty good.
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.

10cc is the debut album by British rock band 10cc. 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. The album reached No.36 in the UK. Three of its four singles reached the Top 10 in the UK charts, including "Rubber Bullets", which hit No.1.
Deceptive Bends is an album released in 1977 by rock band 10cc.
The departure of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme in 1976 to form Godley & Creme almost ended 10cc. However Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman kept the group alive as a duo (with the assistance of percussionist Paul Burgess). The cover design was provided by Hipgnosis.
