1990 Jude Cole – A View From 3rd Street

A View from 3rd Street is the second solo album from the singer/songwriter Jude Cole. Released in 1990, three years after his self-titled debut, this album contains Cole’s biggest single, “Baby, It’s Tonight”, which went to #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Time for Letting Go” also cracked the U.S. top 40 peaking at #32 late in 1990.

Cole provides all of the vocal talent for this album as well as all lead guitar, both electric and acoustic. He performs the bass sections of “House Full of Reasons”, “Baby, It’s Tonight” and “Prove Me Wrong”, and the piano on “Compared to Nothing”.

Producer David Tyson won the “Producer of the Year” at the 1991 Juno Awards for his work on this album.
