You and Me Both

You And Me Both by Yazoo is the epitome of the difficult second album. Vince Clarke didn’t want to make it and Alison Moyet was struggling with the fame their debut album brought. Clarke and Moyet recorded their parts separately. Whilst is may not have the earworming hooks of Upstairs At Eric’s, singles such as Nobody’s Diary showed that the essence of Yazoo was still very much intact. It was, however, their last album. Vince Clarke formed The Assembly with Mute label boss Daniel Miller before having massive success with Erasure. Alison Moyet went on to record the hit pop albums Alf and Raindancing.

Upstairs At Eric's

Upstairs At Eric’s was the debut album by pop duo, Yazoo. The band featured ex-Depeche Mode synth guy Vince Clarke and singer Alison Moyet, very much the Adele of her day. The album included the hits Only You and Don’t Go. The duo made one more album before Vince Clarke formed Erasure with Andy Bell and Alison Moyet embarked on a successful solo career. This album  was originally released in 1982. Their influence has rumbled through the world of pop ever since.
