Background: Released in 1979, Fickle Heart was the first album by Sniff ‘n’ the Tears.

The album reached #35 on the U.S. album chart, but did not chart in the UK.  The song “Driver’s Seat” reached #15 on the U.S. singles chart. gave Fickle Heart a 4 star review:

The British band Sniff ‘n’ the Tears’ 1978 debut, Fickle Heart, is best known for containing the relentlessly catchy rocker “Driver’s Seat,” which became a hit in 1979 and is simply one of the greatest “one-hit wonder” singles of that decade, and arguably of all time. Killer keyboard and synthesizer riffs by Alan Fealdman and guest Keith Miller, piercing electric guitars by Loz Netto and Mick Dyche, solid bass by Chris Birkin, steady drums by producer Luigi Salvoni, and bandleader/songwriter Paul Roberts’ incessant acoustic rhythm guitar and dramatic lead vocals are all terrific individually, but they add up to a fantastic whole.
