About this item
Critics were almost unanimous in their praise for Coles Corner, originally released on 5 September 2005.
Richard's third solo album (his fourth if you include the self titled mini album). It was recorded at Yellowarch Studio in his hometown of Sheffield and is a beautiful album, filled with nostalgia, emotion and romance. Its orchestral splendour sits alongside earthy rock and roll, with songs that are by turns intimate and soaring.
The title immortalises the legendary Sheffield landmark Coles Corner, a popular meeting place of old and new lovers.
The album was nominated for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize for best album.
