    That album is in my top 10 ever, probably top 5. What was it called over there?

    Always thought Deacon Blue were a bit twee, but I agree that Dignity is a great song. Agree with the comments about Prefab Sprout in this thread as well.

    The Blue Nile made two especially good albums, still sound like they were made yesterday.

    If you take then give back good

    If you steal be a Robin Hood

    Appetite, another great song

    I always thought Deacon Blue were a poor man's Prefab Sprout - a band that should have been much more successful than they were.
    I'm a big Steely Dan fan, and Deacon Blue took their name from a track off the Dan's 'Aja' Album, which is my least favourite (despite, or maybe because of, the fact that everyone else seems to drool over it), so they were always on a hiding to nothing.

    Peg is a fantastic song off that album , never knew it wasn't Walter Becker who did the amazing solo

    Lorraine McIntosh? She was stunning back then.

    They produced some really good stuff for a while… I still have their Burt Bacharach covers vinyl EP … they did a great version of ‘I’ll never fall in love again’. Loved their first 2 albums too… Think I probably just prefer ‘When the world knows your name’ to ‘Raintown’.

    Have a bit of Prefab Sprout stuff as well and I get why they might be preferred, but for me Deacon Blue were better, but I’d make an honourable mention for both Aztec Camera and Orange Juice (well Roddy Frame and Edwyn Collins anyway)

    Ship Called Dignity is a really good one- resonates for me …

    Deacon Blue played St David’s Hall a couple of years back. They were excellent.

    Love Prefab Sprout too.
    Nice to see others appreciate them too 👍

    Dignity, I seem to recall, was one of the first songs I remember being advertised (as in a paid advert, not on a play list) non stop on commercial radio. Not sure what channel.

    There were a lot of these pop-rock or pop-soul bands from the mid to late 80s dominating the uk charts that were influenced or inspired by Steely Dan.

    One band from that era and very much overlooked
