Green Door / Shaky

Very smart clean vinyl, cover and inner sleeve.

Shaky is an album released by Shakin' Stevens in 1981. Released at the peak of his popularity, Shaky was the first and, to date, only UK number 1 album for Shakin' Stevens.  The album features three top ten singles, most notably Green Door, which enjoyed a month at number one during the summer of 1981.  Despite Shaky's reputation as a rock and roll cover artist, the album contained five of his own compositions as well as the original song "You Drive Me Crazy", which spent four weeks at number two in the UK singles chart in the spring of 1981.  A cover of "It's Raining", released in the autumn, also managed to reach the top ten in the UK.

Produced by Stuart Colman, the album retained most of the musicians from Shaky's previous album, notably Mickey Gee, BJ Cole and Geraint Watkins, and was again recorded at the Eden Studios in Chiswick.
