If ever there was a missed opportunity, it was in the naming of Producers.

Any supergroup involving the singers of 10cc and Buggles ought, by law, to be called Crème-Horn. With Made in Basing Street, Lol and Sir Trevor, augmented by engineer Stephen Lipson and drummer Ash Soan, have made an album of classy, mature, lush 1970s-flavoured pop-rock. It won't change the rules of music. But hearing people doing what they do, and doing it well, is never a chore.
