If I Didn't Love You is from Squeeze's third album, Argybargy and
was released in 1980 only in the U.S. as 7" and 5" vinyl.
The version here is actually a demo recorded by Glenn Tilbrook, lyrics by Chris Difford. Right now I prefer this stripped-down demo to the track on the original Argbargy. This is available on a deluxe edition of Argbargy, released in 2008 from Universal U.K., and the song list has been expanded from 11 to 36 tracks. The song list includes live material from a 1980 concert at the Hammersmith Odeon.
Listening to this is going to make you wonder why you stopped listening to Squeeze. Soon you will rummage through your dusty vinyl collection only to give up and spend a small fortune on mp3s.
