Marshall Crenshaw’s “Field Day” Named SoundStage Ultra’s Recording of the Month
“Listening again to Field Day reminded me how strong a follow-up it was to Crenshaw’s debut album, and that his work stands with that of any songwriter of the 1980s. Kevin Gray has left Steve Lillywhite’s original intentions for the music intact while revealing in the sound more depth and tonal richness. Crenshaw requested new artwork for the cover; Intervention’s Tom Vadakan has done a nice job of redesigning it, and the packaging and pressing are up to the label’s usual high standards.
Marshall Crenshaw has written and recorded some of the best songs of the last 35 years. This album, in this excellent reissue, is a prime example.” – Joseph Taylor
