Friday flashback features Dave Edmunds
My Friday flashback for April 10 is “Slipping Away”, Dave Edmunds' 1983 hit about a fading romance. The song was Edmunds’ second Top 40 hit and was written and produced by Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra. Edmunds was a favorite of mine during his days with Rockpile and during his solo years. Enjoy.
