Nick the Knife is one of master songwriter, producer and performer Nick Lowe’s most underrated albums, and these demos and rarities give insight into his recording process at the time. The demo version of “Heart” shows its reggae-influenced guitar work that separates it from Rockpile’s version, and the demo of “Raining Raining” exhibits Nick’s vocal range that makes it sound like a long-lost soulful classic. Also included is the rarity “I Got a Job,” a funny but rocking number that gets Nick laughing.
