Engine Overheat

Album: Twin Barrels Burning (1982)

Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo, unashamedly commercial number is the title and opening track of the 1982 Twin Barrels Burning album - "It makes my engine overheat."

    Running to around 4 minutes 3 seconds, the group composition - Wisefield, Bolder, Powell and Upton - is a strong opener but is even stronger live with Laurie Wisefield showcasing on slide guitar. Probably the definitive recording is the February 1983 concert at the Marquee in London. >>
