Happy Days: Squeeze score biggest ever hit album

Cradle To The Grave, the first album of new material by Squeeze since 1998, has entered the UK album chart at number 12 this week, making it their biggest ever hit album barring compilations.

The album, comprised of songs from BBC Two’s Cradle To Grave, the TV adaptation of Danny Baker’s autobiography Going To Sea In A Sieve, is now only behind Singles – 45s and Under (1982, #3), Greatest Hits (1992, #6) and Big Squeeze (2002, #8) in terms of peak chart positions. The band’s previous best for an album of new material was 1987’s Babylon And On, which reached #14.
