Cheap Trick: Dream Police (Epic) ****

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 8 September 1979

IT'S NO mere coincidence that Dave Edmunds openly admires Rick Nielsen, has dinner with him and appears onstage alongside Cheap Trick at the drop of a monogrammed guitar pick; there's a reason for it, plain and obvious. Nope, I don't think they share the same lawyer, it's just that one good plumber recognises another.
