East Side Story, probably the most successful album by Squeeze, was released in 1981 and was produced by Elvis Costello and Roger Bechirian. Replacement of Paul Carrack, Jools Holland, sang the hit itselfTempted before to resign.

In 1982, Squeeze lifted because the band members were said to new challenges. Three years later they came back together. Hourglass in 1987 was a hit.
