Ooh....when a romance depends on cliches and toupees and threepees
This was irresistible to me upon its release.
I well remember getting caught by a monitor throwing shapes in my dorm' mirror to the solo in 'Silly Love'. Much ridicule that I still haven't quite recovered from. There was no embarrassment in my professing a love for this at the time though; if you liked Wings you loved 10cc.
Smart, cynical and great tunes.
There was even a twist of sadness ('Old Wild Men' & 'Somewhere in Hollywood') that kept me interested.
My favourite 10cc song is 'I'm Mandy Fly Me' from a later album but 'Old Wild Men' runs it pretty close. It's also the favourite album of Kevin Godley and Graham Gouldman: "Our best album, epitomising what 10cc was all about. Unique songwriting and production."
There is a recent box set release that you can read about here.
