“So in the wake of the success of the first new Squeeze album in 17 years, 2015’s Cradle To The Grave (which received across the board rave reviews), now is the time to re-visit Difford’s three solo albums: I DIDN’T GET WHERE I AM (2002), THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIS (2008) and CASHMERE IF YOU CAN (2011), gathered together in one clamshell box, with 21 bonus tracks including previously unreleased song demos.
• The bonus DVD features Chris discussing the origin of a selection of the songs, as well as four new acoustic performances, filmed at Elton John’s studio.
