Huey Lewis and the News: Small World (1988)

huey small world

By Scott Goldfine

Huey Lewis and the News has added a dash of zydeco, reggae and funk on their latest offering “Small World,” but their good-natured rock-n-roll brew still shines through. The opening side, highlighted by “Old Antone’s” with Bruce Hornsby on accordion, is the finest work the band has put on wax.

Sappy down-tempo numbers bog down side two a bit, but the LP on the whole is very satisfying.
