The 2017 set Chris to the Mill
boxes up Chris Difford's three solo albums of the 21st century -- 2002's I Didn't Get Where I Am
, 2008's The Last Temptation of Chris
, and 2011's Cashmere If You Can
-- adding a disc of songwriting demos sampling all three albums (including four demos with Boo Hewerdine
), along with a DVD featuring an interview and four acoustic performances. Difford adds personally written liner notes, including track-by-track analysis, so there is plenty to entice collectors who already own the album. Squeeze
fans who've never explored Difford's solo work will find this appealing -- all three albums have a wry, sly charm and it's nice to have them in one spot.
