Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti marked not only a re-formation of the band but also a reunion with Jools Holland. And while history and a dated production style haven't been particularly kind to the album, it is not without its merits. True, it is marred by much of the overblown ambition that undercut Sweets from a Stranger and the Difford & Tilbrook album, but several of the songs -- especially the often overlooked "King George Street" -- are real gems in the classic Squeeze tradition, and the move toward "sophistication" is more fully realized and effective. A flawed but certainly worthwhile album, Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti deserves reassessment.
