Description: 

February: Mixing begins on the new Dexys album at New York’s Electric Ladyland studios and is finished in the summer of that year, by Pete Schwier..

September: Don’t Stand Me Down is released by Phonogram and reaches number 22 in the UK album chart. The sleeve reveals Dexy’s new Ivy League identity, while the music cleverly mixes conversational dialogue with such tracks as the 12-minute opus This Is What She’s Like, the contemplative Reminisce (Part Two) and the passionate I Love You (Listen To This).

October: Dexys’ Coming To Town {Originally called Park Street South’} tour starts in France before traversing the UK.

November 8: This Is What She’s Like/Marguerita Time (Reminisce Part One on double-7” and 12”) is released as a single, with the A-side a truncated version of the album track.

Album title: 
DON'T STAND ME DOWN
