Recorded in the twilight of 1987 and released only in Europe, One Night was the fourth full-length release by power-pop legends the Paul Collins’ Beat. Recorded in San Francisco by long-time Van Morrison band member David Hayes, the album saw Collins and co. enhancing their trademark melodies with acoustic arrangements. One Night would prove to be a temporary swan song for the Beat, and the last album to feature original bassist/co-songwriter Steven Huff; by the early ‘90s, Collins had struck out on his own, casting off his band’s moniker until 2006’s Flying High.
To celebrate the first-ever American release of One Night, Frodis Records has lovingly remastered the album from Paul’s original quarter-inch masters. LP copies of One Night come with a special bonus download of “She Says (Drums Version)”, an outtake recorded during the album’s sessions and only available here!
